There is much more to a person than just what he is popularly known for, and we want to prove that today. Not only is she an award-winning artist, the best-selling Colombian artist of all time, and an activist, she also has a side with which most people can identify. There is no better way to explore that side than by watching Shakira’s husband and her other family members.
How is that relevant, you ask? Well, having a family is one of the things that almost everyone on this planet can identify with, not being a singer or having a $220 million fortune. Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s move on to the issue of Shakira’s husband or lack thereof.
Just to be clear: Shakira has no husband, and we don’t believe the star is planning on giving this title to anyone anytime soon. In an interview with Cosmo, she revealed: “For me, the idea of marriage has something very claustrophobic about it.
Now that we know why she isn’t into the idea of being legally bound to another person for life, we can take a look at the men who could have held the title of Shakira’s husband if the star would have agreed to such a thing. The first man on the shortlist is Antonio de la Rúa.
Shakira and Antonio, the son of the former Argentine president, have been together since their early twenties, and they were together for a long, long time, 11 years to be exact. Let’s face it, some marriages don’t even last that long, they must have had a good thing going for as long as it lasted.
What made their relationship a scandal was what happened after the breakup: Antonio filed a juicy $100 million lawsuit against the singer of Hips Don’t Lie. According to him, he was her manager and most of her success is the result of his hard work. Needless to say, he lost this lawsuit.

These days, Shakira is living with football player Gerard Pique, whom she met during her stay in South Africa for her performance of “Waka Waka” at the 2010 World Cup. Despite their age difference of 10 years, the couple seems to grow stronger with each passing day, and they have two adorable children to prove it.
So it is safe to say that none of these men were or is Shakira’s husband, but all hope is not lost when the star dropped this bomb in 2014 when she spoke to Glam Belleza Latina: “We already have the essentials, you know? We have a union, love for each other, and a baby.
She added, “I think these aspects of our relationship are already established and marriage won’t change that. But if I’m ever getting married, he’s the one.
Shakira has two sons with her current heartbeat, Gerard Pique. Her first son, Milan Gerard Pique, was born on January 22, 2013, in Barcelona, Spain. She announced the wonderful news of his arrival on her website and added this sweet information: “Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at his birth.
Two years after Milan’s birth, the couple released another overdose of cuteness into the world with the birth of their second son Sasha Pique Mebarak. They welcomed him into the world on 29 January 2015, still in Barcelona, Spain.
They love to show enchanting pictures of the boys, and can we blame them, it would be a crime to keep all this to themselves. Recently there have been rumors of a third baby on the way, and here is what the star said to quash those rumors.
At the moment there is no plan for a wedding, nor am I pregnant, we are very happy as we are, and at the moment there are no plans for marriage, and since I have paparazzi outside my door going through the trash to see if they can find any evidence of pregnancy, I want to make it clear: I am not pregnant, so you can go home and wash your little hands.
