Shakira opens up about Gerard Piqué and motherhood

About her relationship with Gerard Piqué, 26, the singer says: “He has his own world and that’s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship.”

“I know that he’s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love that unites us,” Shakira says.

She added: “There’s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood – does that word exist in English?”

As for being a mother, the singer is “still trying to figure it out,” adding, “and I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life.”

“Some people put it like it’s very idyllic, some people put it like it’s a torturing experience, but it’s not quite one thing or the other. It’s like life – it comes with everything,” she says, giving a definition of what motherhood means to her
