Shakira is a daddy's girl at heart.

The Colombian singer released a candid behind-the-scenes video of her recording sessions with her father, William Mebarak, in honor of his 81st birthday. The track titled, "Hay Amores," originally from the "Love in the Time of Cholera" soundtrack, showcases an emotional duet between father and daughter.

"I always hoped for a boy," said William jokingly in the video. "But once I say how beautiful she was, I decided I would be satisfied with a girl," he added with humor. In the video, we also see sweet moments between William and Shakira's mother, Nidia del Carmen Ripoll.

When asked to describe her daughter, she said, "In a few words, my daughter is love and sincerity."

We would love for Shaki's family to have their own reality show!
