Shakira certainly seems over the moon these days. After being honored as Person of the Year at the 2011 Latin Grammys and winning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, why shouldn’t she be?
According to Aqui Y Ahora, the real reason Shakira is so happy is because of her 24-year-old Spanish soccer player boyfriend, Gerard Piqué.
The 34-year-old Colombian singer and activist giggles her way through most of the interview, but when the interviewer asked Shakira about specific details about her relationship with Piqué, she politely refuses to answer, saying, “I can’t tell you that. Because you know, I’ve decided to try and preserve a little bit of my privacy.”
Shakira then changed the topic and set the story straight. “No, I’m very happy with Gerard. We are very, very, very happy. He’s a man that makes me happy and I’m happy I found him.”
We’re glad she found happiness!
