As a biography, Antonio de la Rua was born in Cordoba, Argentina on February 26, 1973 so his age is 36. His parents are former Argentine president, Fernando de la Rua and Ines Perine. He worked for his father as an advisor during his father’s term in office and also campaigned for him during his presidential run. He also worked as the head architect of his father’s election campaign. After his father’s presidency, Antonio studied philanthropy. He is a lawyer and has been in the public eye for some time, due to his father’s seat as president in Argentina and the family lived at the La Casa Rosada house in Argentina. In 2000, the lawyer started dating singer Shakira which headlined news in Latin America. In March of 2001, the couple became engaged. Shakira’s boyfriend was involved in negotiating her contract with Live Nation. This event producer is known as the largest in the world. In December of 2006, Antonio amongst others founded the ALAS Foundation which is a non-profit organization that aids in Early Childhood Development in Latin America. Antonio owns a 700 acres of island called the “Bonds Cay” in the Bahamas.

The first time that Shakira’s boyfriend saw her sexy catsuit with a black belt and stilettos for her “She Wolf” video, he was shocked. The singer said, “He did not expect that at all,” adding that, “When he saw me in my flesh-toned leotard bodysuit, he was like, ‘Could you not have worn a scarf at least.'”

Even though Antonio would like to see the singer tone down her sexual image in her performances, Shakira said, “I kept the cage from my She Wolf video. I may use it some other time.” You go girlfriend!

She says about her long-time love, that she is not ready to marry but says she would love to have children first! Well, isn’t that the way things go these days? Cannot wait to see a little baby wolf in the future!
