Shakira, Gerard Pique Expecting Baby #1
Shakira, 35, and Pique, a 25-year-old defender for FC Barcelona, have been an item since March 2011, but didn’t go public with the romance until a year later. In an announcement on her website Wednesday, she told fans:
“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. Big kiss! And will see you very soon! Shakira.”
Shakira has not revealed the baby’s gender or when she is to due to deliver.
