Latina songstress Shakira took to her Facebook to confirm the happy news. The 35-year-old Colombian singer is pregnant with her first child. The happy father is Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué.
Shakira posted the following on her Facebook page:
As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby! At this time we have decided to give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities planned over the next few days.
This means I will not be able to be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but I’m sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular and I will be closely following everything that happens there!
I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding.
And will see you very soon!
It was just announced this week that Shakira will be taking a seat on the judges turning chairs for the next season of The Voice. Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera who will be leaving for the forth season to promote her new album ‘Lotus’ and work on her solo career.
Congrats to Shakira and Gerard on their happy news!
