Shakira is “very happy” to announce that she is expecting a baby.
This will be the first child for the Grammy Award-winning Colombian superstar and her beau professional soccer player for FC Barcelona Gerard Pique, who she met while in South Africa for the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup.
In light of the good news Shakira, 35, will take a little break from her singing commitments.
“As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” she wrote on her Facebook page.
“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.”
