Shakira says boyfriend Gerard Piqué is her "prince"

Shakira says her boyfriend Gerard Piqué is like her "prince" who saved her from despair.

The singer has been with the Barcelona footballer for a few years and in 2013 they had their first child together.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine today (March 31), the Colombian said Piqué was there to give her a new lease of life after feeling "trapped".

Speaking about her new song '23', Shakira said: "The song is about the miracle and how he changed my life. Sometimes I feel like at that time when we met, I often felt like a princess trapped in a castle with a dragon inside, and he was the prince who rescued me.

"It sounds super corny, but it's how I feel! I was searching for happiness for so long and I finally found it."

The singer meanwhile released her new self-titled album earlier this month and it reached No.14 in the UK on Sunday (March 30).
