Singer Shakira on Wednesday night and her boyfriend Barcelona defender Gerad Pique were on display in a more intimate venue – the dance floor of a Hollywood nightclub.
And Shakira put on a raunchy routine for her admiring boyfriend as they cavorted together, seemingly unnoticed by oblivious clubbers
The professional Spanish footballer stood watching happily as Shakira tossed her full loose curls around her head, twisting and turning as she did her famous Hips Don’t Lie dance.
At one point the 5ft2 Columbian jumped into Gerard’s arms, clasping her legs around him.
The 6ft4 26-year-old athlete had no trouble grasping his petite lover, as they shared an embrace.
The passion between the two was obvious, as they focused intently on one another throughout their evening at new Hollywood hotspot The Emerson Theatre.
Both were dressed down in jeans and T-shirts, with 36-year-old Shakira adding some heels and a pendant on a long chain.
The singer and her lover have one child, six-month-old Milan, who was born in Spain.
They left him at home for their date night, on which they also fitted in a romantic meal a deux.
The family have just returned from a holiday to Hawaii, where they were pictured splashing around in the ocean and bonding with their baby.
Since Milan’s birth on January 2, the singer has described losing her baby weight as ‘a little stressful.’
‘I knew I had to come back here to do The Voice two months after I had delivered a baby,’ she said back in April.
‘I didn’t have my four months of maternity like every woman on earth has. I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges.’
Shakira revealed she had maintained her exercise regime during and after her pregnancy.
‘I do Zumba,’ she said. ‘Zumba has been actually really great for me. Even during pregnancy, I kept doing it until almost the end.’
The singer has just finished a stint replacing Christina Aguilera for the fourth season of NBC singing talent show The Voice which ended last month.
‘With The Voice, I don’t have time to exercise,’ Shakira said while the show was on air. ‘And when I have a day off, I just want to be with Milan.’
The star also admitted she felt under pressure to shed the excess pounds following the birth.
‘I think that our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure women of today are after delivering a baby,’ she said.
‘My dad says there’s nothing better than meat over the bones. So he likes my mom a little chubby. She was never under the pressure to have to get to her old weight – and she never did.’
