Colombian pop sensation Shakira and her Spanish soccer playing boyfriend Gerard Piqué are expecting a baby.

“As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” she posted on Facebook. “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.”

The 35-year-old “Hips Don’t Lie” singer didn’t specify the gender of the baby, though sources told HuffPost Voices it’s a boy when pregnancy rumors began to circulate in June.

According to the New York Daily News, Shakira was rumored to have had an ultrasound in Miami sometime in August, when she was allegedly four months pregnant. The star did not confirm how long she has been expecting the baby.

Shakira and Piqué, 25, have been dating since last year. This will be the first child for both of them.

Shakira will also join Usher on NBC’s The Voice in season four, temporarily replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green. She is set to earn $12 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Thanks for your affectionate messages & good vibes! I’m so excited to be a part of #TheVoice next to such talented colleagues,” Shakira posted on Twitter of the new gig.

Shakira will miss the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend.
