Shakira is expecting her first child with Barca's Gerard Pique




A couple of days ago we told you there were plans to have Shakira replace Christina Aguilera as a coach on The Voice, but not until next year. The Latina singer wil be plenty busy in the meantime, though, because she just announced she and boyfriend Gerard Pique are expecting a baby. Does that mean Xtina will be around awhile longer?

"As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" the 35-year-old write on her website. "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!"

Pique, a defender for Spanish soccer team FC Barcelona, is a decade younger than Shakira and has only been dating her since March 2011, so we'll see what happens next. It's the first child for both. Sounds like someone's biological clock was ticking. Who better to scratch that itch than a 6-foot-4 footballer?
