Shakira Announces That She’s Pregnant, Will Drop Out Of Music Festival


Shakira is joining the ranks of celebrity moms, as the Colombian singer announced this afternoon that she’s expecting her first child! Unfortunately for her fans, it means that they won’t be able to see her perform in Las Vegas at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this Friday, but we have a feeling that they’ll be more than forgiving! The 35-year-old is well on her way to starting a family with her boyfriend, soccer player Gerard Pique.

The lovely blonde with the truthful hips released the following statement on her website today:

As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby! 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.

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 and I will be closely following everything that happens there!

I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding.

Big kiss!
And will see you very soon!

Congrats to the soon-to-be mom and dad! Will this affect her role as a newly minted judge on The Voice this winter alongside Usher? We’ll have to wait and see!
