Shakira Is Having a Boy!
Shakira is pregnant with her first child, and now the Colombian superstar has confirmed that she's having a baby boy.
During an interview the German TV station RTL, the new 'Voice' judge excitedly revealed the news. "It's gonna be a boy," she gushed. "This guy [boyfriend Gerard Piqué] is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. And now we are having a baby."
The 35-year-old, who is the founder of the Barefoot Foundation, also said that she intends to involve her son in her charity. "When the baby is born, I'll take him with me on charity trips," she mused. "He shall learn that he is able to change the world."
Two weeks ago, Shakira confirmed that she was pregnant in a letter to her fans. She said she and FC Barcelona soccer star Piqué were "very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby," but had to "give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities" in the coming days, which included canceling her iHeartRadio Music Festival performance.
This is the first child for Shakira and Piqué. The couple have been together for two years after meeting on the set of the singer's 2010 music video for the South Africa World Cup theme song 'Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).'
