Columbian singer Shakira has confirmed that she and Spanish soccor player Gerard Pique are expecting their first child. The 35 year old pop star and her 25 year old boyfriend have been dating for about two years. Writing on her website, Shakira said that she was postponing all promotional activities planned over the next few days to focus on the news. The singer was expected to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino this weekend in Las Vegas, but has now cancelled her appearance. The hip shaking singer has just signed up to become one of the coaches in the U.S version of “The Voice” and will replace Christian Aguilera for the upcoming fourth season next year.
