Singer Shakira Pregnant with First Child

35-year-old pop singer Shakira is having a very good summer! FirstToKnow.com broke news on Tuesday that Shakira was just announced as a replacement judge for Christina Aguilera on NBC’s The Voice this season.

Now, the singer herself is announcing (via her personal website) that she and her boyfriend, 25-year-old Gerard Pique are expecting their first child together.

The Grammy-winning Colombian singer revealed in a 2009 interview that she was eager to start a family saying, “I really would like to have a big belly.”

Fans were shocked when she split with her longtime boyfriend, Antonio de La Rua, the son of former Argentinian President Fernando de la Rua. The two were together for a decade, before she met Barcelona born Pique, a soccer player for FC Barcelona.

Due to her pregnancy, Shakira will be postponing her promotional activities and won’t perform at this Friday’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas as previously scheduled.
