Gerard Pique is "Proud" of Shakira

We aren’t the only ones proud of Shakira’s recent appointment to President Barack Obama’s Education Advisory Board. Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique is too. Shakira’s sweetheart took to Twitter yesterday to express his joy over the news. “So proud of you!” he wrote, accompanying a link to an article from La Vanguardia about the Colombian singer’s appointment.

And with that short but extremely sweet post by Pique, we’re assured that all is right between him and the Colombian singer. Shakira also sent a “muah!” to Pique via Twitter earlier this week.

Rumors have been flying in all directions recently about possible trouble in the Latin star couple’s relationship. The main cause for speculation is the fact that Shakira and Pique haven’t been photographed together in a while. The last time they were spotted together was during a white-water rafting incident earlier this summer. We were so used to seeing them almost conjoined at the hips. Maybe they’re just both busy – it happens!

In her new role, Shaki will reportedly help assist children in need throughout Latin America – something she has already done for years through her Pies Descalzos Foundation, which she founded in 1997. According to Hola, Shakira expressed her excitement in sharing her 15 years of lessons learned from working with her organization.
