Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, Gerard Pique Barcelona Spain walking

Shakira and new boyfriend, FC Barcelona player Gerard Pique, caused quite a stir in the soccer star's hometown Friday.

The lovebirds were mobbed by fans on the streets of Barcelona, but graciously paused to pose for pix with many of their admirers.

Shakira admitted the two were an item last month, posting a picture of themselves together on her Twitter with the caption, "My sunshine!"

And it looks like the glow is still going strong!
