Boy, oh baby! Shakira, who announced last month that she is pregnant with her second child, will be mom to another son.
The Colombian singer, 37, who first confirmed the news of her second pregnancy to Spanish Cosmopolitan in late August, said in the same interview that she and boyfriend Gerard Pique are expecting a boy. "The sexy singer admits Milan will have a little brother soon," the publication wrote in its September issue tease.
Shakira's parents Nidia Ripoll and William Mebarak Chadid also shared the baby's gender with Hola! magazine on Tuesday, Sept. 9. "We're very happy," the grandparents said. "She's having another baby boy — a playmate for Milan."
After her pregnancy reveal, the "Hips Don't Lie" sensation took to Twitter to graciously thank fans for their well-wishes. She wrote on Aug. 28, "The Pique-Mebarak family is still growing!"
Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!— Shakira (@shakira) August 28, 2014
¡Sigue creciendo la familia Piqué Mebarak! ¡Gracias a todos por sus mensajes de cariño!— Shakira (@shakira) August 28, 2014
Shakira and soccer stud Pique are already parents to 19-month-old Milan. Since baby Milan's birth last January, the tot has already made a cameo in his mom's soccer-theme music video for her World Cup single, "La La La (Brazil 2014)."
Though she has her hands full with the vivacious adorable tot, the singer has been very open about wanting to expand the brood even more. In April, she told Latina: "I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — My own futbol team."
