Nice to meet you, too!
Lolita the killer whale got really friendly with Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique last Wednesday at Florida’s Miami Seaquarium. The couple enjoyed a private tour of the park and interacted with bottlenose dolphins, manatees and stingrays during their visit.
“She had a really great time,” spokesperson Cristina Rodriguez tells PEOPLE. “She was definitely much more an animal lover than he was, but he was along for the ride.”
Shakira had the most fun with the dolphins, and spent the most time watching them through the underwater viewing windows.
“The dolphins were very attentive to her and followed her as she walked from window to window,” Rodriguez says. “She even had the opportunity to watch our youngest dolphin nurse.”
The couple “were very affectionate and seemed to enjoy their time together viewing the park.”
