They met in 2010 when he featured in her hit track “Waka-waka” which was the official anthem of the world cup that year.
They were unable to see each other through out the duration of their stay in South Africa, but texted each other regularly. He told her he would reach the finals, just to see her again. she was performing at the finals

Well Spain reached the final and even won the cup- a double win for Gerald pique who also found the love of his life. Today, they are eight years strong with two kids

Bridgette Macron is the mother of all Cougars she is 65 and her husband, the president of France is 40.

She was his high school teacher, married with kids his age. She divorced her husband and followed him, his parents as expected was unhappy about the union.

I am all for breaking societal norms but this is a tad bit too much for me. how cringe worthy would it get when she gets like wheel chair old and he is still a dashingly handsome prince.

Well, they are 25years strong; he has no kids of his own but inherited her children and grandchildren
