Just after Xmas, prankster Gerard Piqué joked on Twitter that Shakira had given birth to their baby. A day later, he fessed up that he was only kidding. Today we get to see that, yes, Shakira was still very much pregs when she celebrated the arrival of 2013 on Monday night. Gerard shared a couple of photos of his babymama-to-be partying up a storm on New Year’s Eve … showing the world that she has yet to bring forth the fruit of her loins.
The rumour mill went into overdrive when her footballer boyfriend announced she had given birth last week. But Shakira, 35, is still heavily pregnant and is putting her unborn child’s needs first. The pop star and her beau Gerard Pique had a quiet night in on New Year’s Eve and said goodbye to 2012 at home. Hips Don’t Lie singer Shakira dressed up for the occasion in a black top with a sparkling silver pattern on the front. Sportsman Gerard looks smart but casual in a black jumper which he wore over a light blue shirt. And while she may be heavily pregnant, Shakira still had the energy to have a bit of a dance on the celebratory night. The star donned a gold top hat and wore a white feather boa as she bopped along to the music … Shakira is believed to be due to give birth in January. She will become a mother for the first time once the baby is born. The star announced her pregnancy in September last year.
I understand the prank was in celebration of the Spanish holiday Dia de los Santos Inocentes (Holy Innocents’ Day) which is kind of like April Fool’s Day for us. Considering Shakira is due to pop any day now, it was a pretty good prank. But, as far as we know, she is still pregs (at least, as of Monday night) so we still must wait for the arrival of her baby.
