Shakira felt like a princess locked away in a tower until her partner Gerard Piqué swooped in to rescue her.

Shakira has likened Gerard Piqué to her knight in shining armour. The Can't Remember to Forget You singer has been in a relationship with the Spanish soccer star since 2010 and says the sportsman swooped in like her fairytale prince, saving her from a life of loneliness. Discussing one of her more personal new tracks, 23, she enthused on ITV breakfast show 'Lorraine': "The song is about the miracle and how he changed my life. Sometimes I feel like at that time when we met, I often felt like a princess trapped in a castle with a dragon inside, and he was the prince who rescued me.

'I was searching for happiness for so long and I finally found it'

"It sounds super corny, but it's how I feel! I was searching for happiness for so long and I finally found it."

The happy couple have a 14-month-old son, Milan, together and Shakira revealed the baby's cameo gurgling noise at the end of 23 was recorded by accident.

The 37-year-old singer explained: "It wasn't intentional. I was recording 23, that I wrote for Milan's father, and I went to studio, I was recording the last bit of the song.

"I put him on my lap and gave him the headphones to listen to me singing the song. When I finished he went, 'Mehhh!' So I kept that."

Despite her commitments to filming 'The Voice' and promoting her new music, the Colombian star wants to have a hands-on approach to motherhood.

Shakira added: "I try to take Milan everywhere I go, to be with him and nurture him as much as possible."
