How to Help Celebrate Shakira’s (Charity!) Baby Shower

01/19/2015 at 07:00 PM ET

You’re invited to Shakira‘s baby shower — along with the rest of the world.

The singer and soccer star Gerard Piqué are hosting a “World Baby Shower” benefitting UNICEF, they announced Monday, also sharing sweet family snapshots putting Shakira’s growing baby bump on full display.

Shakira, 37, held a similar event while pregnant with son Milan, who turns 2 this week, and was able to fund nearly four tons of therapeutic good packets, more than 80,000 polio vaccines, almost 200,000 rehydrating salts and about 1,000 mosquito nets through fans’ donations, she explained on Facebook.

“Now that we are about to be parents for the second time, we want to take it one step further: by making baby showers with a philanthropic bent accessible to everyone,” she wrote Monday. “Thanks to social media, celebrities are not the only ones who are able to make a real change. Now you can contribute so that baby showers that give to other children become a new global trend.”

To contribute to the campaign, people can buy and send “gifts” including midwifery kits, measles and polio vaccines, blankets, baby scales, soccer balls and storybooks.

The former Voice coach is expecting another boy, she told Hola! magazine in September.

She is doing a wonderful thing, but she could do one more and get married.

Now this is the right use of celebrity — to help others rather than to aggrandize self.

Get over yourself Stacey! Marriage isn’t for everyone and if they choose to get married later good for them. It is NONE of our business! Good for them for doing this to help so many other who can’t help themselves!

Oh here we go.. on

Oh get over yourself, Stacy. How about we just enjoy that she and her family are sweet people doing a wonder thing rather than coming down on them for not sharing your views on marriage.

Beautiful family!!!

good for her, but she shouldn’t be endorsing whitening strips — wasteful and stupid. Just gargle with hydrogen peroxide!

I hate that use of “sweet.” it’s a photo. But her son is a cutie!

Melanie M on

She is a bad role model as she is not married.

I didn’t realize she was pregnant! Or that her son was so old!
I agree with previous posts – What a great use of celebrity!!

Beautiful post and what a beautiful first photo – all of them, that’s one precious family. I love the boy’s hair. And what they are doing, that’s nice thing to hear instead of the Kardashians nonsense.
