The celebrated Columbian singer, one of the greatest pop singers of all time Shakira, 35, and her boyfriend, Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, 25, have just started a family, their newborn son, Milan, becoming a member of his father’s FC Barcelona club at birth.
Early in 2012, the couple purchased a luxury home in Esplugues de Llobregat, Barcelona. However it needed quite a lot of work to be done inside so since June last year they regularly turned up to the property to check up on the builders’ work as they wanted their home to be perfect before they moved in all their belongings.
The Spanish mansion is located in a quiet and isolated spot on a high hill at a reasonable distance from the city center in Esplugues de Llobregat, the province of Barcelona. It is an imposing building boasting many rooms and featuring solid security gates, two garages of considerable size and an extensive balcony which overlooks onto amazing views in the distance.
Shakira also owns 700 acre island in the Caribbean, north of Bahamas, about 125 km off the east coast of Florida. The private island, which features three salt pond and five beaches, cost Shakira and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd $16 million between them (in 2011) and the purpose of its purchase was the building of a star-studded resort.
