Shakira is having a nino!

The "Whenever, Wherever" singer revealed in a new video interview with Germany's RTL that her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique is going to be a boy.

The first-time mom-to-be was admiring her photos of her interviewer's son and noted, "He's going to be able to play with mine."

"Will it be a son?" the interviewer asked.

"Yeah," she said with a big smile on her face.

Shakira, 35, revealed on her Facebook page on Sept. 19 that she and Pique -- an FC Barcelona soccer star she's been dating for over a year and a half -- were expecting. "Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" she wrote.

The Colombian superstar told RTL, "This guy [Piqué] is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. And now we're having a baby."

Shakira is very involved with UNICEF and her own charity organization, the Barefoot Foundation, and hopes she can teach her future son the importance of giving back.

"[When] this little baby here . . . comes out of my body," she told RTL in the video, "He'll have to understand that he needs to be an agent of change. He can be an agent of change."
