Shakira is going to be a mommy soon! ‘The Voice’ coach was taken to a hospital in Barcelona, Spain to welcome her first baby boy with boyfriend Gerard Pique. Congrats to the happy couple! 

Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Pique are so excited to be parents, they can’t wait to share the good news — even before their bundle of joy actually arrives! Gerard took to his Instagram account to post “this Tuesday our first son will be born,” according to the Associated Press, but the post has since been deleted.

UPDATE: Gerard Pique & Shakira’s Baby Born

Shakira, who will replace Christina Aguilera as a coach on NBC’s hit music contest show The Voice, was taken to a hospital in Barcelona, Spain on Jan. 22 to welcome her baby boy. She and Gerard, a soccer player for Futbol Club Barcelona, arrived in a black Audi.

Their baby was actually due on Jan. 20, but the couple was holding out hope he would be born on Feb. 2, which is the date of both of their birthdays. But Shakira’s doctor decided to schedule for labor and delivery on Jan. 22, due to the baby’s already large size.

Shakira Preparing To Give Birth

While the Colombian singer and her beau are waiting for their little guy to arrive, Huffington Post is reporting that the mom-to-be requested all members of the medical team assisting her gynecologist Carlota Garcia Valdecasas be only women. The team had to sign a confidentiality agreement to prevent any information or photos from being leaked.

“Everything was organized, down to the smallest details,” a source told Huffington Post. “Though Shakira has always asked to have a natural childbirth, it is quite possible that, because of the enormous size of the baby, it could be a C-section. That is why within the medical team, they also have a plastic surgeon to assist her.”

We hope Shakira and Gerard have a healthy and safe delivery — and congrats to the happy couple!
