Shakira had been worried about the age gap with her new boyfriend. The singer/dancer thoughts her fans may call her a “paedophile” when she began her new romance with a man ten years younger than she was. The Hips Don’t Lie singer and soccer star Gerard Pique met while on shoot of a music video for her soccer World Cup single, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa). They are now parents to a son called Milan. She also says that of course she was concerned over their age gap, that she even wrote a song called 23 about Pique’s age when they first met.
She tells Britain’s The Sun,
“It took me so many years to get to where I am in my life now. I wasn’t fulfilled or satisfied and I think Gerard was the missing link. And as the song says, he was only 23 when I met him and I was concerned about the age gap as I was 33, but I’m no paedophile.”
