Shakira is currently seeking US residency after living in Canada, Britain and South America

After custody agreement with Gerard Piqué, Shakira and her kids are moving to the U.S.

The Brazilian star – who has two teenage boys – is currently seeking U.S. residency, after having lived in Canada, Britain and South America.

Shakira’s two sons, 15-year-old Romeo (ROB) and 13-year-old Cruz, will reportedly be the first of the children to be raised by the singer in the States.

Speaking on her Instagram account, the 33-year-old wrote: “Happy to announce the opening of my third home in America. My son Romeo (15 y/o) and my daughter Cruz (13 y/o) born 5 days apart and are now the first to receive citizenship in America.

“With joy at the prospect of becoming a legal adult, I will make my new adopted country a full part of our lives. Happy to announce I am preparing the US visa and residency for my children. I will wait patiently for the documentation to be received from my birth lawyer.”

Shakira added she has “so many dreams to reach” in America and hopes to become “the best mother in the world”.

The star has previously revealed her sons have “fantastic music” and a “nice voice”.

Meanwhile, in an interview with the Guardian, she said she wanted to give the children “what I couldn’t provide, which was happiness. That’s all they ever wanted.”

Shakira was previously granted British citizenship in December. She also became a permanent resident of Canada in 2011 after obtaining her Canadian citizenship, and gained US residency after marrying the former footballer in 2009.

She has become the top-earning woman in music history, with the release of her seventh album Astroworld, sold in excess of 18m copies worldwide.

In October 2013, Shakira was nominated at the Brit Awards for British female Solo Artist, breaking the record previously held by Beyonce, who received six awards in 2012. She is also featured on Beyonce’s latest video, “Ring My Bell”.
