Not many people know how they met except from the fact that their love affair started during the 2010 World Cup.
Pique however lets it slip on how they first got long by him asking about the weather, how she was immediately responding and also how the official 2010 World Cup song; 'Waka Waka' got them together.

"First time I met Shakira was in Madrid when we filmed the video for Waka Waka before the 2010 World Cup and I asked for her number," Pique told TV3.
"She arrived in South Africa before us (the Spanish national team) because she was singing at the opening ceremony. I sent her a text asking how the weather was because we were arriving in a few days.
"This is a typical stupid question that you write and normally get a response like, 'it's cold, bring a coat'.
"But the she writes a long paragraph, detailing the change in temperature throughout the day. I thought, 'Jesus, this is not normal'. It was in those details that I could tell there was affection.
"We started messaging each other throughout the tournament, but the only chance I would have of seeing her would be at the final because she was performing the closing ceremony.
"I told her that if I had to reach the final to see her I would do so. And that was the second time we met, after the World Cup Final."
Pique and Shakira have been together ever since and have two children togather, Milan and Sasha.
