A Joyful Shakira Confirms Pregnancy on Her Website

By September 20, 2012

Follow me on:

Latin music superstar Shakira has confirmed the rumors about her pregnancy. In a public statement, unusual for an artist who has always kept her private life private, the Colombian singer has shared the news of her first child with Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique. "Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" the Latin Pop diva stated on her website.

Shakira is also postponing all her upcoming promotional activities. Because of this, she won't be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this coming Friday in Las Vegas when she was supposed to take the stage. However, her participation in the next season of NBC's vocal competition show The Voice should not be affected by the recent news.

Last year, the relationship between Shakira and Pique created one of the hottest gossips in the Latin music industry. Now that Shakira has confirmed she is pregnant, there is already speculation about her condition. A recent article in the The Huffpost Voces stated that Shakira was diagnosed with Toxoplasmosis and is currently being treated by a well known doctor who specializes in high risk pregnancies. The same source said the baby's gender is still unknown. Considering the famous stature of Shakira and Pique, we can expect lots of gossips during the next months. Hopefully, everything will be fine with Shakira and her new baby.

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform
you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
