Shakira may be recognized as one of the most popular Latin crossover stars of all time, but the social media-savvy entertainer is just like any first-time mother with her undeniable excitement about the baby she’s expecting with FC Barcelona star Gerard Piqué, releasing a photo of her growing baby bump via Twitter and Facebook.
“Now I don’t have a six pack, only one pack!!” tweeted the Colombian star Saturday, alongside her picture wearing a sleeveless fuchsia dress with a black belt just above her baby bump.
Shakira released the gender of her child just last week during an appearance on the German television show “RTL.”
“It’s gonna be a boy,” said “Hips Don’t Lie” singer. “This guy [Piqué] is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. And now we’re having a baby.”
The 35-year-old first announced her pregnancy via Facebook and Twitter in September, telling fans “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.”
Despite canceling her appearance in last month’s “I Heart Music Festival” in Las Vegas, Shakira hasn’t let impeding motherhood slow down her career with the news that she’ll be replacing NBC’s “The Voice” next season.
