Shakira won`t marry boyfriend

London: Pop star Shakira has revealed that she would like to have children but has no plans to tie the knot because she enjoys the idea of "being someone`s girlfriend forever".

Her confession has put her fiancé Antonio Dela Rua in an awkward situation, say reports. They`ve been engaged for some time but Shakira says: "No, I have no plans to get married. Ever."

Given that it took years for lawyer Antonio, son of Argentine ex-president Fernando de la Rúa, to persuade Shakira to get hitched, he won`t be pleased with her Glasto bombshell.

Shakira added: "There`s something romantic about being someone`s girlfriend forever. I like the state that I`m in. I definitely plan to have children but I don`t see a wedding dress anyway."

The 33-year-old also admitted her saucy shoot with the Wimbledon ace Rafael Nadal for her Gypsy song had caused a few strains in the romance.

"Obviously it`s not his favourite thing in the world to watch that video. But it`s my job and part of what I do," she said.

"I`d known Rafael for a while and thought he`d be perfect for this video. And he was. It was his debut as an actor. He was really easy to work with and we had a lot of fun. Even though he`s good looking, he`s very humble and not full of himself at all," added the singer who sang this year`s official World Cup song "Waka Waka".
