Shakira is expecting baby number two with boyfriend Gerard Pique! The singer tweeted the happy news on Thursday. "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes," she wrote.

The Voice coach welcomed her first child, Milan, with Pique in January 2013. The couple met in 2010 during the World Cup, where Pique, 27, was playing for Spain and the singer was promoting her anthem "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)."

Shakira, 37, has been very open about her desire to have a big family, telling Latina magazine in April, “If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already. I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own futbol team.”

Congratulations to the happy family!
