Shakira (39) is the girlfriend of Spanish footballer Gerard Pique (28). The Daily Star newspaper quoted Shakira telling the magazine: "In my house everyone goes to bed at 8.30 so daddy and mummy can play at being lovers. I'm very German when it comes to timetables. I was never punctual and it was my great professional failing but I have to admit that my children (three-year-old Milan and one-year-old Sasha) have straightened me out."
Shakira also revealed her temperamental side which reflects on her being very demanding at home. "I have a happy temperament which compensates and Gerard likes that," she said. "He once told me something I think is the most romantic thing I've ever heard him say which is that he likes my defects and that he couldn't live without them. That is a definite compliment because I've got a lot, definitely more than a dozen."
The singer and footballer met in 2010 when he was part of her famous music video for her hit song, 'Waka Waka'. When she was interviewed recently and asked whether she'd choose Prince William or Prince Harry for a date, Shakira, also famous for her Hips Don't Lie track, replied: "I've got my own prince so I can't help you on that one."
The Daily Star added: "She officially confirmed their relationship via Twitter and Facebook on March 29 2011, posting a picture of the two with the caption: 'I present to you my sunshine.' " Talking of Facebook, Barcelona star Pique reportedly had dinner with Facebook founder and wife Priscilla Chan to celebrate Chan's birthday.
