The baby rumors have followed Shakira and beau Gerard Pique since June, but Wednesday the Colombian singer confirmed she’s pregnant.
“As some of you may know, 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,” Shakira writes on her website.
“This means I will not be able to be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but I’m sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular and I will be closely following everything that happens there!”
Fans elated Shakira broke baby rumor silence
Shakira baby rumors were just rumors on Tuesday, when Shakira announced she would replace Christina Aguilera as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice” in spring. Aguilera is taking some time off to promote her new album due out in November and go on tour. Shakira is also expected to release a new album later this year and has announced she will go on tour in 2013. The star has not said whether her pregnancy changes her plans to appear on “The Voice” or go on tour. For now, fans are elated that Shakira and Pique broke their silence on the baby rumors.
