The most recent foray into spousal terms was in January 2020, when she posted a video with trainer Anna Kaiser.
“Well, ‘the Kaiser’ doesn’t let me turn on my phone until I finish with my workout and spend the whole morning with my kids,” Shakira said, to which Anna added, “Yes, ’cause it’s time for you!” Shakira smiled and said, “Yeah, and my husband can’t find me.”
Kaiser even commented on the post, “I love thinking of the hunky husband searching for you.”
Yet going by Shakira’s previously comments about marriage, it’s merely a go-to term of endearment. She faced the same sorts of questions while she was still with de la Rúa, and she stated her actual goals (no pun intended) very clearly.
“I think I felt trapped in a golden cage for many years,” Shakira told USA Today in 2009 while promoting her album She Wolf. “The culture, the education, the upbringing, what society expects from you…Over the past year, I’ve been asking myself the question, ‘What does Shakira really want? What are her desires and how do I fulfill them?'”
And she was figuring it out.
