While Shakira and Gerard Piqué found themselves at the center of split rumors late last year, the couple look more in love than ever in 2018. The FC Barcelona star took to his Instagram on Tuesday, January 16, to share a sweet picture of himself cozying up next to his longtime partner.

The duo proved great minds think alike as they twinned in long black sleeve tops and matching pants, in addition to red sneakers. Alongside the laid-back picture, Gerard simply penned, “Black&Red @shakira.”
