Shakira’s boyfriend Gerard Piqué tweeted an announcement on Dec. 27 that the couple welcomed a son to the world, but the fact that Dec. 28 is Spain and Latin America’s version of April Fool’s Day, some are wondering whether this is just a big prank! Read on for all the details!

Back in mid-September, Shakira announced that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Gerard Piqué. No one was expecting to hear news of a birth so soon, which is why a tweet from Gerard announcing the birth of a baby boy on Dec. 27 took fans by surprise!

“Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!” Gerard wrote in Spanish, which translates to “Our son [is] already born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!”

As some news outlets rushed to announce the birth, many people began to point out that Dec. 28 is Dia de los Santos Inocentes, which is the Spain and Latin America’s version of April Fool’s Day. As Shakira has stayed silent on Twitter and Facebook, and it was already the morning of Dec. 28 in Spain when Gerard tweeted, we’re suspicious about the validity of the announcement! Could it be one big prank?

When Shakira announced her pregnancy, it forced her to back out of some scheduled performances, including the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas. “As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!” she announced to her 54 million Facebook fans on Wednesday, 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. This means I will not be able to be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but I’m sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular and I will be closely following everything that happens there! I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding.”

Update: Shakira’s rep confirmed to ET Online that the tweet was in fact a joke. “Yesterday was Dia de los Inocentes which is similar to April Fool’s. She hasn’t had the baby yet,” the rep told ET Online.

We’ll keep our eye out for the real happy day! What do YOU think of the prank, HollyMoms?

He wouldn’t lie, he’d just be pulling a prank on us :) and if that’s a case, I’m gonna kill him! Hahaha, jk, but everything’s possible. Gerard is known as the best prankster in FC Barcelona locker room. It’s not cruel, it’s just who he is… you have to love him because of it :)

Given that Shakira’s father first spilled the beans about her pregnancy around the EURO 2012 in Poland held in June, that wouldn’t be very surprising. Whatever the case, when the baby is born, I hope the boy and the mom are healthy:)
