Congratulations are in order for Shakira!
The singer, 35, announced some exciting news on her website Wednesday. “As some of you may know, [boyfriend] Gerard [Piqué] and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” the mom-to-be wrote.
She added: “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 … I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding. Big kiss!”
Shakira and Piqué, 25, central defender for FC Barcelona, went public with their relationship in March 2011. This will be the first child for both.
And more exciting news to add to the mix: NBC just announced that she will temporarily replace Christina Aguilera as a judge on season four of The Voice.
