Superstar Shakira announced she was pregnant with her first baby on Wednesday afternoon (September 19, 2012). The Grammy-winning Colombian singer and her boyfriend Gerard Pique, who have been dating for around two years, met each other when the top Spanish football player was featured in the music video for her South Africa World Cup theme song “Waka Waka” (“This Time for Africa”) in 2010. The couple are now expecting their first child together and it seems that Shakira is very happy with the news. “As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” The belly-dancing singer said. “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.” As a result, the “She Wolf” singer decided to take a brief break from performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2012 in Las Vegas, scheduled for Sept. 21 and 22 at the MGM Grand.
