Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Shakira and her boyfriend, soccer player Gerard Pique, are expecting their second child together, the Latina singer confirmed.
The mom-to-be first shared the news in the Cosmopolitan Mexico’s October issue, revealing that they are expecting a baby boy.
According to multiple reports, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer is just past her first trimester and is “taking a lot of precautions with her health and nutrition.” Caracol Noticias was the first news outlet to report on the pregnancy.
In April, Shakira told Latina, “If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already. I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard—my own fútbol team.”
She added, “When you have a baby, when you feel his love, you feel so at peace with the world. You just want to share the good news and share how happy you feel.”
Shakira, 37 and Pique, 27, met in 2010 during the World Cup season, where she sang the anthem “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).” The duo welcomed their first child together, Milan, in January 2013.
