Shakira is probably one of the most complete artists in the world.

She can play 5 musical instruments and speak 7 languages fluently (Spanish, English, French, Arabic, Catalan, Italian and Portuguese).

Shak' is also the best-selling Latin artist in history with more than 80 million copies around the world.

But besides being extraordinary and loved by millions of fans, what makes February 2nd such an important date for the artist?

Shakira has been in a relationship since 2010 with world soccer star Gerard Piqué, a Barcelona FC player in Spain, with whom she has two children in common: Milan, 8, and Sasha, 5.

The couple is solid, and they are always very much in love.

Is the secret to their success the fact that both are of the same sign?

Well, both are from Aquarius and also were born exactly the same day. Only 10 years apart.

February 2nd is a very special day for Shakira because she shares her birthday with the love of her life and the father of her children.

So today, when she turns 44, she will be turning 34.

The age difference has never been an issue for the duo and in fact they are one of the lowest-profile celebrity couples and with the least public scandals of our generation.

From here we celebrate the birthday of the artist and her partner with the music video for the song "Me Enamore" (I Fell In love) that Shakira wrote for Gerard Piqué and with whom she recorded it.
