Is it time to break out the blue soccer jerseys?

Shakira and her longtime love, FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué, are expecting a second son together, according to her parents.

“Yes, another little boy. A playmate for Milan,” they told Hola! magazine while visiting the pop singer in Spain.

While they’re “very happy” about the future addition, the proud grandparents reportedly added they “don’t know anything” about a name.

The Colombian singer, 37, confirmed her pregnancy on Aug. 28 via Facebook, announcing, “Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you for all your well wishes!”


The couple of over four years, who met on the set of the video for her 2010 World Cup song “Waka Waka,” are already parents to son Milan, 21 months.

While Shakira told PEOPLE how much she enjoyed being a mother after his arrival in 2013, she also confessed it wasn’t a piece of cake. “It takes a lot of energy from you,” she admitted.

Boy or girl it doesn’t matter. You have a baby not for gender but to have a child.

Courtney- you shouldn’t assume that she got an amnio just because of her age. It’s not a law.

Why is this a question? It was confirmed last week on Shakira’s facebook page. Research much People magazine?

This is old news, I knew of this a month ago.

Congratulations Shakira and Pique….this baby will be beautiful regardless of its gender.

Question to all of you: How believable is this page here when it comes to gender announcements?There are pregnancies just like Mila Kunis’ and Ashton Kutchers…not one of them has ever revealed whether they’ll be having a boy and a girl but the whole internet says it’s gonna be a girl even though it was supposedly confirmed by a “close friend who wanted to stay anonymous” and I was kinda suprised to read the same here on this page.All the pregnancies I’ve read about here were either confirmed by the parents themselves or by the celebs managers or something and if there were non of these sources this side would write that the gender is unknown.

Does it happen that this side is wrong sometimes?Or can you say that-confirmation or not-that this page has always been right or were there pregnancies where the page said: “Huh?Suprise it’s a….”

Just curious.🙂

Yay!! I love her another beautiful baby

Lucky girl to get 2 boys! Boys rock.

Tanja- I can’t recall any times when this site was wrong about gender. Same goes for pregnancies announced by “sources” rather than the celebs themselves. Regardless, I think we can trust this announcement, seeing as it came from the grandparents-to-be (rather than just an named “source” or “friend”)!🙂

CRM- Good point! It’s also worth noting that Shakira lives in Spain, not America. It’s very possible that amnios for older mothers aren’t routine there.

Congratulations to Gerard and Shakira!! they have a beautiful family.

2nd baby and no ring? Kind of hypocritical with her Catholic values that she sings about in her songs.
