Are Shakira and Gerard Piqué finally getting married?!
Are Shakira and Gerard Piqué finally tying the knot?! The couple, who have been together for over three years, welcomed their first child, Milan, in January and wedding rumors have been circulating them ever since. Now, the soccer star is speaking out about how the birth of his son changed his life and whether he and Shaki are really making it official.

In a recent interview with HuffPost Voces, Piqué confesses that life has not been the same since he and Shakira became first-time parents ... but in the best way possible.
"The love you feel for your child transforms everything," he said. "Now you have someone helpless and tiny that depends on you and only you."
The athlete says both he and Shakira are hands-on parents, although he admits it's not always easy since both of their careers often require them to travel (Piqué is stationed in Barcelona with his team and Shakira is currently filming The Voice in L.A.). Still, their hectic schedules haven't stopped from planning for the future.
Piqué also confessed the couple wants more children but not until "later on." For now, all their attention is on little Milan--which means (sorry fans!), a wedding is not in the cards just yet. "It's not the time, our world is centered on Milan now, we are not thinking of anything else," he said.
Still, the public shouldn't give up hope. From the glowing way in which Piqué talks about Shakira--"She came into my life to transform it ... She and Milan are my everything," he said--it's abundantly clear that these two are in it for the long haul.
And Shakira is equally effusive about Piqué . "I think, if you can prove the existence of God, it can only be proven through love," she said in Elle's July cover story. "I was not feeling the love like it was supposed to be, I started to think that there was no God. And suddenly I meet Gerard and the sun comes out."
Aww! How can you not love these two together? They are such a sweet couple and obviously very dedicated parents. And though I know everyone wishes they would shift into wedding planning mode (I kind of can't wait to see Shaki in a wedding dress!), I think it's smart that they're taking the time to adjust to parenthood and focus on what matters. They obviously have their priorities in order!
