Shakira Brought Her Sons To The VMAs Where She Received A Major Award, And They Looked So Proud Of Their Mom

Shakira also had the sweetest things to say about her sons in her Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech.

The VMAs were a major evening for Shakira. The legendary singer was honored with the Video Vanguard last night, which is a lifetime achievement award given to artists whose contributions to music and pop culture can't be overstated.

To celebrate the big night, Shakira adorably turned the awards show into a family event by bringing her two sons, Milan and Sasha Piqué, as her guests.

Milan and Sasha dressed in matching black and yellow track suits and shoes, and they were all smiles while posing on the red carpet alongside their proud mother.

Is this photo not just the most wholesome thing you've seen all day?

Shakira shares the children with her ex-partner, former Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué. In June of last year, the couple split after 11 years together.

Shakira and her kids kept the good vibes going inside the VMAs, which were held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Seriously, just look at how much fun they seem to be having!


It's all the more impressive that Shakira managed to bring her kids to such a big awards show when you consider that she also took the stage for a major performance.

The singer performed a medley of her many hits, including "She Wolf," "Hips Don't Lie," and "Whenever, Wherever." You can watch the full performance here.

Lastly, Shakira was presented her Video Vanguard Award by her "Hips Don't Lie" collaborator, Wyclef Jean. In her speech, she specifically thanked her sons.

"Thank you so much for cheering me up and for making me feel that momma can do it all," she said.

No, you're crying!
