Shakira and Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique are awaiting their first child which they have taken to calling “Ulicito,” according to Colombian magazine Gente.
The Colombian starlet had an ultrasound 10 days ago in Miami where the couple’s doctor told them the chances of having a boy is 80 percent, reports Gente.
Several online sources report the couples due date to be in January and that Shakira will likely give birth through a cesarean section.
These reports have not been confirmed by the couple or their reps. So only time will tell if the rumors hold truth. Gente first reported that the couple was pregnant back in July when an “inside source” told the publication that the 35-year-old star was pregnant. Shakira is 10 years older than her 25-year-old beau.
Shakira and Pique began dating a few months after collaborating on the filming of the music video for the South Africa World Cup theme song “Waka Waka” (This Time for Africa). Soon after filming the video, reports emerged that that the two were dating even though the two were dating others at the time.
Pique is a defender for FC Barcelona and in 2009 and 2010 he won the FIFA Club World Cup championship for Barcelona and the FIFA World Cup in 2010. The couple lives in Spain.
