Shakira Shows Off Huge Baby Bump During Christmas Shopping Trip
Countdown to baby!
Shakira showed off her growing baby bump Dec.17 while doing some last-minute Christmas shopping in Barcelona.
The "Tortura" singer, 35, looked positively radiant as she browsed a jewelry store clad in a figure-hugging black top, pants and boots that accentuated her baby-to-be with boyfriend Gerard Pique.
The couple's little bundle of joy is set to make his debut mid-January, according to a European Union of Association Football (UEFA) report.
Just last month, Shakira shared a shot of herself with soccer player Pique, 25, with her bare belly exposed.
"I could have another nine months like this," the Colombian singer captioned the intimate photograph.
Shakira and Pique first revealed their happy baby news back in September via Facebook, explaining that they would be putting all professional obligations on hold for the sake of the baby.
"Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" she wrote Sept. 19. "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 pair first met on the set of the singer's video shoot for the South Africa World Cup theme song, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" back in 2010, and the singer officially confirmed their relationship in March 2011.
"Shakira is really looking forward to being a mother," a source close to the new Voice mentor recently told Us Weekly. "They definitely want more than one together."
