Shakira, 46, looked content on Sunday as she gets ready to embark on a life in a new city with her sons. The singer was photographed at the airport as she left Barcelona, Spain along with her two sons, Milan, 10, and Sasha, 8, ahead of a family holiday. The doting mom, who split from her sons’ father Gerard Pique, last year, will be moving to Miami, FL with her brood after reportedly signing a “custody agreement” with her ex — and she confirmed herself on April 2 that she would not be staying in the the Spanish city.
The statement was shared in Spanish to her Instagram account and is translated to English. “I settled in Barcelona to give my children a stability, the same we are now looking for in another corner of the world next to family, friends and the sea,” she penned to her fans.“Today we start a new chapter in the pursuit of their happiness. Thank you to everyone who surfed alongside me so many waves there in Barcelona, the city where I learned that friendship is certainly longer than love,” the singer went on.”
“Thank you to everyone who has been there to cheer me up, dried my tears, inspired me and made me grow. Thanks to my Spanish audience who have always covered me with their love and loyalty. For you, just a see you later, and as my father said so many times, see you around the curves!” she signed off with a heart emoji.
Shakira wore a denim jacket with jeans during the outing, and had her long wavy hair down. She added sunglasses to her look and white platform sneakers. Both of her sons wore T-shirts and shorts with sneakers, and she made sure to keep them close, even putting her hand on one of their shoulders as they got ready to board the plane.
Shakira, Milan, and Sasha’s outing comes after reports revealed that the “Whenever, Wherever” crooner gave Gerard just days notice that she was leaving Barcelona for Miami this week so the boys could start a new school on Apr. 11. It also comes less than a week after the doting dad was seen hugging one of his sons at a soccer game in Barcelona. Gerard also spoke out publicly for the first time since he and Shakira split, last week.
“Everyone has their responsibility to try to do what is best for their children,” Gerard said about co-parenting with his ex, in an interview with El Pais. “It is about protecting them. That is the job of all parents with children. That is what I am focused on and that is my job as a father.”
The former professional soccer player also admitted he’s “very happy” in his relationship with his new girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti, 24. “I keep doing what I want,” he said. “The day I die, I will look back and hope I have always done what I wanted. I want to be faithful to myself. I’m not going to spend money cleaning up my image.”
