Several reports are coming in that Colombian star Shakira and her Spanish footballer boyfriend Gerard Piqué are expecting the birth of their first baby today, Tuesday, January 22.
“On Tuesday our first son will be born,” Pique reportedly posted on Instagram, according to the Associated Press, though the post does not seem to exist anymore.
The original due date for the baby’s birth, according to the Huffington Post, was January 20, but due to lateness and the baby’s large size, reports Notimex, Shakira’s gynecologist scheduled the labor for today.
The couple and their parents are currently at the Teknon clinic in Barcelona, and according to a source who spoke with HuffPost Voices, the all-female team assisting in the labor has signed confidentiality agreements to avoid photos or information leaking.
“Everything was organized, down to the smallest detail,” the source explained. :Though Shakira has always asked to have a natural childbirth, it is quite possible that, because of the enormous size of the baby, it could be a C-section. That is why within the medical team, they also have a plastic surgeon to assist her.”
In December, Piqué posted on Twitter that their child was born early—though it wound up being a joke for the Spanish holiday Dia de los Innocentes, which is similar to April Fool’s Day.
