Shakira has gushed on more than one occasion about how motherhood has changed her for the better, and how pregnancy has been a complete blessing. And now she gets to go through the wonderful experience again — she’s pregnant with baby No. 2.
The “Can’t Remember to Forget You” hit maker confirmed, after months of speculation, that she and her soccer-player boyfriend Gerard Piqué are expecting their second child together, during a recent interview with the Spanish version of Cosmopolitan.
“Well yes, the truth is that I am pregnant,” she confessed to the mag. And there are rumors that the Colombian-born star will soon become a mother to another little boy.
The “Hips Don’t Lie” star has been a doting mom to her 18-month-old son Milan, who she shares with her boyfriend — the pair first met four years ago when Piqué appeared in the music video for Shakira’s hit song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).”
The beauty even previously gushed to Latina magazine about how she’d love to expand her little family.
“If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already,” she confessed in the April issue of the magazine. “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own fútbol team.”
Well, she’ll be getting her team sooner than she expected. In fact, Shakira has a lot of good things happening in her life lately, because her career is flourishing. Not only is she a coach on The Voice, but she has also released her self-titled 10th studio album — but being a mother is still her No. 1 priority.
Congratulations to the happy couple on the news of Shakira’s pregnancy with their second child.
