Shakira will be singing lullabies in the near future.
The 35-year-old Colombian singing sensation—who was just named Christina Aguilera’s replace on the spring cycle of NBC’s The Voice—announced on her website that she’s expecting her first child.
Shakira is expecting with boyfriend Gerard Pique, the 25-year-old Spanish footballer who confirmed they were dating in March 2011.
“As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” reads the message. “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.”
On Tuesday, NBC announced that Shakira and R&B singer Usher would replace Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as coaches on the fourth season of the The Voice.
