Shakira is pregnant!

The Colombian singer, 35, and her boyfriend, Gerard Pique, a soccer player for FC Barcelona, are expecting their first child, the Latin pop star confirmed on her Facebook page on Wednesday. 

"Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" she wrote. "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."

The "Hips Don't Lie" singer and Pique first started dating in March 2011, shortly after her split from longtime love Antonio de la Rua.

Shakira won't get a break for too long. She is set to temporarily replace Christina Aguilera on NBC's The Voice, along with Usher
