Shakira's boyfriend/baby daddy, Gerard Pique, has a PhD in Looking Hunky and a MA in Staring at Shakira's Non-Lying Hips, but when he isn't busy with all that jazz, he moonlights as a professional football player! Which is "European" for soccer player, FYI.

Gerard plays centre-back for FC Barcelona, and is one of just four soccer players to have won the UEFA Champions League two years in a row while on two different teams. We're not entirely sure what that entails, but apparently he's really good at kicking balls and running around a field. Plus Gerard helped The Spanish National Team win the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which is a huge achievement in the sporting world!

And by the way Shakira's hit "Waka Waka (It's Time For Africa)" was the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup –– and she and Gerard met while making the music video! Yep, it's alllll coming together.

Nowadays, Shak and her man live in Barcelona with their beautiful son, Milan (who was born on January 22, 2013), and they couldn't be happier!
