Shakira Announced Pregnancy On Facebook

Submitted by on September 20, 2012 – 8:10 am Comments

ShakiraShakira took to her Facebook page to announce that she (35 years old) and her beau, the Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, are expecting their first little baby. “As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very  happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” That’s a pretty low key announcement, but no doubt their excitement is anything but.

This may be a little bit bittersweet for Shakira’s fans. The songstress also posted that with this news, the couple will be taking some time off to focus on this special moment. “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. 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!”

This announcement makes perfect sense when you think about the announcement earlier this week that Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera on the hit show “The Voice” for its fourth season this spring. The job should be a great, low-key way for Shakira to take a break from all the traveling and singing, but still keep busy while awaiting the arrival of her baby.

Hollywood is booming right now with the mommies to be. Reese Witherspoon is expecting and rumor is that her baby will be a little boy. Reese (36 years old) already has two children, 13 year old daughter Ava and 8 year old son Deacon with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.  This new baby will be her first child with husband Jim Toth, who does not have any children as of yet. I’m sure Jim is thrilled to no end that his first baby will be a boy. Reese did have a few complications in her pregnancy last month, but she seems to be doing just fine now as she inches closer to her due date.Reese Witherspoon

Earlier this summer we found out that the soulful songstress Adele is expecting her first baby. The singer (24 years old) posted the announcement on her blog. This will be the first child for Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki (36 years old) though he has a 5 year old daughter from a previous marriage. So far, there is no word about whether or not the couple will be getting married.

Drew Barrymore is yet another expectant mother in Hollywood. (See, I told you there were tons of them. Kinda giving me those aches for another little bun in the oven.) Drew and her new husband Will Kopelman are expecting their first little baby. But Drew said that once this baby gets here, she will not be slowing down but will keep doing the things that she loves to do. The actress said she wants to build fun, great things for her family, and there’s no doubt she will.
