In her latest single Me Enamoré (I Feel in Love), the Colombian songstress reveals her initial thoughts about the soccer star when they met in 2011. The upbeat track, also makes reference to their 10-year age gap and the couples' two children. Translated from Spanish, the lyrics read: "Life began to change me/The night I met you/Had little to lose/And the thing went on like this/I was with my striped bra/And my hair half done/I thought, 'He is still a child./But what am I going to do?" She complimented her partner in the lyrics singing, "Look what a beautiful thing/What a round little mouth/I like that little beard," are repeated throughout the song.
