How Is She Holding Up?
With the first pregnancy of Shakira, she did not deny this at all. She confirmed it with the media that she and boyfriend Pique is expecting their first child through her social networking pages. She says that they are very excited and that they have decided to postpone promotional activities as of the moment. Doing so will allow them to focus on this special moment in their lives.
Unfortunately, with this great news comes a bit of disheartening news to her fans. Shakira was meant to perform in the iHeart Radio Music Festival with other famous Latin music artists like Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull. She had to cancel her appearance to focus on being healthy for her baby. Nevertheless, the first pregnancy of Shakira makes her very happy and she blows a big kiss to all of her loving fans. Did you catch that?
The rumors of the first pregnancy of Shakira started in June. By August, the media was already saying that she was 4 months pregnant although Shakira didn’t specify when she made the confirmation. Sources say that the pair is expecting a boy. Gerard Pique is a 25-year old FC Barcelona soccer player. The pair has been dating since early 2011.
A rumor also started spreading about Shakira and Pique purchasing a mansion in Barcelona. This somehow led people to speculate that Shakira was indeed expecting. In late July, the rumors were confirmed when Shakira and Pique were spotted shopping for maternity clothes.
What’s Next For Shakira?
The soon-to-be-mom is not planning on just staying at home and being away from the spotlight. She will be very busy in 2013 as she accepted a judge role in the popular NBC singing contest “The Voice”. Usher is also a new judge that will join her. Other judges include Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Shakira and Usher are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as judges for this new season. How much will she earn from this? The amount is a whopping $12 million just to sit on a comfortable chair and watch great talents.
Shakira is very happy with this career move and she expresses her thanks to her colleagues in The Voice. Who wouldn’t be in cloud nine? She is expecting her first child and expecting a huge paycheck next year.
