Shakira’s Boyfriend Gerard Pique Weirdly Punks World With Fake Birth Announcement

|

Shakira did not give birth yet, contrary to a tweet from her fiance Gerard Pique

“Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages!” Barcelona soccer star Gerard Pique tweeted last night, announcing the slightly premature birth of his and girlfriend Shakira’s first child.

And the congrats started pouring in for the beautiful couple … until, er, he posted another message a few hours later:

“He’s already got a name, Innocence. Happy Dia de los Inocentes, everyone!” he wrote, cluing everyone in on the fact that he was actually just kidding on Spain’s version of April Fool’s Day. Which, ha ha. That’s kind of sick, dude. We know it’s OK for the kid to be born a few weeks early, but you probably got all sorts of family and friends excited for you and now they feel like chumps.

(Or maybe I’m jealous, ’cause I’ve got another eight or nine weeks of waiting myself!)
