Are pique and shakira still dating
Keep reading for a quick visual round-down of their relationship through the years.There's a reason why Shakira's new single "Can't Remember To Forget You" features Rihanna -- and a steamy accompanying music video in which the two female superstars caress each other -- and not a male playing her counterpart in the clip.The song recounts their first encounters, how Piqué was just a kid (Shakira is ten years older than him), but she fell in love with his beard and lips anyway, as they drank mojito after mojito. Almost everyone will recount, Shakira's hit"Waka Waka" was the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, but only real fans might remember Piqué makes an appearance on the music video for the song, as do other soccer players, including Lionel Messi. In an interview with TV3, recounted by The Daily Mail, the FC Barcelona soccer player talked about how a simple question opened the door to their relationship: "She was already [in South Africa for the World Cup] because she sang in the opening ceremony, and I asked her what the weather was like." That was it!Shakira used that excuse to text him back every time there was a slight change in weather until Piqué suggested his team would have to make it to the final so they could see each other again.
The Barcelona defender, speaking to Catalan TV3, discussed how the pair met, when the Colombian superstar singer was still dating her advisor, Antonio de la Rúa, with whom she had had a long relationship. Later, when she had arrived in South Africa [the Spanish team arrived after the singer], I sent her a message asking how the weather was.She sent me a long message back and it all started there", said Piqué.After that initial spark the two realised they would have one last chance to see each other in South Africa, at the closing ceremony, but that depended on Piqué being there.Since then, of course, the relationship has blossomed and Piqué and Shakira are proud parents to three year old Milan and one year old Sasha."When you decide to have a baby it's because the relationship is going really well.
