They say a picture is worth a thousand words….
For some days now, speculation about the status of the relationship between Shakira and Gerard Piqué has been rife. And while neither has made an official statement on the matter, since Sunday morning it has no longer been necessary to heard them say not a single word about it.
All it took was once simple, yet blunt, picture.
The Barcelona defender debunked all rumors that he and the Colombian star are on the verge of splitting with a simple family picture he uploaded on his Instagram Stories a few days ago.
The image showed Shakira walking on a day out with their sons Milan, 4, and Sasha, 2. Piqué captioned the image “#Sunday Family time”, while he also tagged the 40-year-old singer in the snap.
And although a picture, especially one that only lasts for 24 hours, may seem insignificant, in fact, it was precisely that what triggered rumors of estrangement between the power couple.
Many fans wondered why they hadn’t shared pictures of each other since June at Leo and Antonella’s wedding, sparking rumors about an alleged separation. Therefore, a photo of the family all together seems like the most appropriate—and yet ironic—strategy to take the spotlight off their marriages “woes”.
“We try to do the best we can” Shakira said about his relationship with Piqué in an interview with HOLA! USA. “There’s a lot of love; that’s the foundations of any family. You have to take care of it and dedicate time. Family is the most important thing for me; the rest is secondary.”
Gerard and Shakira have been together for seven years, since they met at the 2010 World Cup. And from what we understand of the picture Piqué posted (we’re reading between the lines, people!), the Waka Waka couple will be together for many years to come!
