It’s not the singer’s only tie to soccer. The Colombia native is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Gerard Pique, a 25-year-old defender for elite Spanish club FC Barcelona who also plays on the Spanish national team.
Shakira announced the news on her Facebook page Sept. 19.
"Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" she said, according to Us Weekly.
She first shared her baby bump in a picture posted to her Twitter account Oct. 6, where the expecting mother joked about her changing body.
“Now I don't have a sixpack, only one pack!!” Shakira said on her account, where she has more than 18 million Twitter followers.
The “Waka Waka” singer also shared a pre-concert photo with her followers, snapping a backstage pic before taking the stage in Azerbaijan.
“Getting ready for the show, see you in a bit #Baku!” Shakira tweeted.
She also sent her congratulations to the French U-17 team for winning the Women’s World Cup.
“Congrats to the French team for winning the FIFA female cup!” she wrote. “I enjoyed seeing you in front of the stage celebrating!”
