New York, snow, and Christmas: those are the three elements of one of the most idyllic postcards that there is. To experience it first-hand, Gerard Piqué and Shakira, together with their two children, Sasha and Milan, have taken a year-end trip from their Barcelona homebase to the US metropolis, and once again, the celebrity couple have put a stop to the rumours about a possible crisis in their relationship.
The family arrived in the United States incognito, but once installed, allowed themselves to be seen at one of America's most emblematic sports stadiums: Madison Square Garden. The whole family went along to see the Christmas Day NBA match between the New York Knicks and the Phidadelphia 76ers.
Not only that, but they also had seats right beside the action. The best view in the house. The front row of the New York sports pavilion is where the big stars - of movies, music or television - take their places, and clearly Shakira and Piqué fit the bill. When the ball is not in play, the cameras always focus on the "celebs" who have come to enjoy the game. The couple and their children found themselves getting a lot of camera time. The FC Barcelona footballer - soccer player, for statesiders - also shared his photos of the match with his followers via Instagram Stories.

So, what better way to show yourselves to the world as a happy and united family, after the constant rumours of separation? You also get the impression that Shakira is recovering from the vocal chord hemorrhage that is keeping her off the stage until next year. Well, next year is not that far away.
