Colombian singer Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, popularly known as Shakira has revealed why she is yet to marry her footballer boyfriend after almost a decade together.
Shakira and her longtime partner Gerard Piqué who plays football for the spanish giants Barcelona have been together for almost 10 years with two sons, Milan and Sasha.
The singer explained in an interview why she and her fiancé are not married.
“Marriage scares me. I don’t want him to see me as his wife, but rather as his girlfriend.
“It’s like that forbidden fruit, I prefer to keep him attentive and think that everything is possible depending on his behavior.”
Shakira, 42, and Gerard, 32, met when the FC Barcelona star was one of the few World Cup players to appear on the singer’s Waka Wake music video.
The mother of two admitted that she couldn’t help but notice her beau when he took the screen.
In a recent interview, the Colombian superstar opened up about her family’s unique dynamic.
“We have never been a traditional couple,” she told CBS’s 60 minutes.
“We don’t have a written deal to share the tasks or anything like that, but we both are very involved in parenting and try to sort it out the best we can, we support each other, and we also find a huge help in our families. We don’t know a different way to do it!”
