Congratulations are in order for Latin pop sensation, Shakira. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer has just announced that she and boyfriend Gerard Pique are expecting their first child together! What does this mean for her new gig on NBC‘s The Voice? All the details after the jump.
Yes, Shakira is going to be a mommy; and a hot one at that!
The singer took to her Facebook page on Wednesday (September 19) to make the announcement to her 54.6 million fans, letting them know that she and boyfriend Gerard Pique are expecting.
The 35-year-old entertainer has been dating the FC Barcelona soccer star for almost two years. She officially confirmed their relationship in March of 2011.
“Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” writes Shakira. “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.”
So how will her pregnancy impact her upcoming stint on Season 4 of The Voice?
Well, other than some adjustments to her wardrobe (or will she still try to rock the bare belly?!), right now, there aren’t any major changes being made to make room for baby on the judges’ panel.
Perhaps it’ll give her a bit of an upper hand during the Blind Auditions, with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Usher not wanting to duke it out with a pregnant woman. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
Congrats again to Shakira and Gerard! 2013 is gonna be a great year for them.
