Shakira, 35, is pregnant with her first child with Gerard Piqué, 25, who is a Spanish footballer.
The multi-talented artist confirmed her relationship with Piqué in March 2011 via Twitter and Facebook. She posted a picture of them together with the caption, “I present to you my sunshine,” in Spanish.
So, it wasn’t unusual that she announced her pregnancy on Facebook with this message.
“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… I’d like to thank… my fans for their constant love and understanding,” Shakira stated.
According to the Huffington Post, pregnancy rumors first hit the blogosphere in June, when Fox News speculated that the singer and 25-year-old FC Barcelona soccer star Piqué, had purchased a mansion in Barcelona because she was already expecting. In late July, the rumors seemed all but confirmed when the couple was spotted shopping for maternity clothing in Miami. The baby is the first for both Shakira and Piqué, who first began dating in April 2011.
