The singer is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Gerard Pique
Shakira has announced she is pregnant with her first child.
The 35-year-old Colombian pop star posted on her website that she is expecting a baby with 25-year-old boyfriend Gerard Pique.
‘As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby,’ she wrote.
The singer also added that in light of the good news, she will be cutting down her work schedule: ‘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.’
Shakira has been dating her toyboy lover Pique, who is an international Spanish footballer, since 2011. She had previously dated Antonio de la Rua, the son of former Argentinian President Fernando de la Rua, for over a decade before the two split in 2011.
Shakira is due to be a judge on the next season of the US TV show, The Voice.
