Shakira hails from Barranquilla, Colombia while her partner was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain. Aside from their roots being from different places, it sure looks like their constant support of each other’s careers is one of the many reasons the two are still going pretty strong.

In an interview with Glamour magazine, Shakira threw light on not wanting to get married, saying, "We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one".

Although this celebrity couple is the most-talked-about, they're yet to be married; Shakira appears to be rather anxious about the concept of marriage, which she isn't concerned about considering how much she enjoys being called Gerard's "girlfriend". In her '60 Minutes' interview with her "husband", Shakira revealed that, "Marriage scares the sh** out of me", explaining, "I don’t want him to see me as the wife. I’d rather him see me as his girlfriend".
