World Cup changed my life: Shakira

London: Colombian pop star Shakira, who performed at this year`s FIFA World Cup closing ceremony, said the tournament changed her life as she met her husband on the 2010 closer.

The `She Wolf` singer, 37, who has an 18-month-old son Milan, with Spanish player Gerard Pique, 27, said they never would have met if she hadn`t signed up to sing the 2010 World Cup anthem `Waka Waka (Time for Africa)`, reportedly.

"I will never forget that I met the love of my life at the World Cup. If it wasn`t for the World Cup my son Milan would not be here," she said.

This was Shakira`s third performance at the World Cup, as she previously sang at the closing ceremonies in South Africa in 2010 and in Germany in 2006.
