Congratulations! Shakira Has Her Baby Boy


Guess we’ll have to take Shakira off our 2013 Bump Watch!

Although a source from the Union of European Footballers Association reported that the singer and her soccer-star husband, Gerard Pique, wouldn’t be parents until mid-January, it seems a certain little guy had other ideas.

Gerard posted on Facebook this evening (translated from Spanish), “Our son has already been born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!”

In no time at all, he had received more than 7,200 congratulations from fans.

The couple waited to announce the pregnancy until September, when Shakira was already well into her second trimester. From there, they revealed that they were expecting a boy, and even shared an ultrasound image.

The birth came less than a day after Gerard gave an interview joking that his son would become a “socio,” or member of his FC Barcelona team, at birth.

“[M]y grandfather and then my parents made me aware of what it means to be a fan, to be a Barcelonista, and I’m very proud of that,” he said.

Congratulations – or should we say, felicidades -to the happy parents and the newest little socio!
