It’s true, it’s true! For weeks now, rumors have been buzzing like crazy on Twitter and Facebook, claiming that Shakira was expecting another baby. Well, it appears that all of the rumors are true. The Voice judge confirmed that she is indeed expecting baby number two!
Shakira’s fans were bummed to learn that she would not return to the upcoming season of The Voice, but the Latin singer has very good reason – she is expecting another baby! For weeks now, we’ve seen these rumors floating around, but Shakira kept quiet about the buzz. However, she recently sat down for an interview with the Spanish version of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and told them that she is indeed expecting again with her boyfriend, Gerard Pique.
After that story broke, Shakira also took to Twitter to confirm the news, posting:
Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!

Having more children is definitely something that the Latin hottie wanted, as she told Latin Magazine back in April: “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 futbol team.”
Shakira and Pique met back in 2010 while she was filming the music video for her song Waka Waka (This Time for Africa), which was also the official anthem of the 2010 World Cup. In early 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, Milan into the world. No word on when Shakira is due, but we’re hoping it’s before January so she can get back to mentoring on The Voice.
Congratulations to Shakira and Gerard!
