After announcing her split from her boyfriend of 11 years, Antonio de la Rua, in January, Shakira has found new love with soccer star Gerard Pique. The 24-year-old is currently a center back for powerhouse FC Barcelona, where he has played since 2008, and is also a member of the Spanish National team. Originally from Barcelona, Pique met Shakira, 34, last summer during the World Cup in South Africa. He was also featured in her music video "Waka Waka (A Time for Africa)," the official anthem of the international tournament.

Shakira confirmed their relationship by posting a photo with Pique on her Twitter account earlier this week, writing "Les presento a mi sol" (I present to you my sunshine). —EMILY EXTON
