Shakira and her footballer beau, Gerard Pique, indulged in an April Fools’ Day style joke by tweeting that the heavily pregnant singer had given birth to their first child.
Pique wrote in Spanish, via Twitter: “Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages!”
The couple, who are expecting a baby boy this month, were taking part in the Spanish practical joke day, Dia de los Santos Innocentes, which happens on 28 December and is the Spanish equivalent of our April Fools’ Day.
Bucking the trend of celebrities, such as Adele, ‘keeping mum‘ about their newborns, this couple have already revealed not only the sex but also their chosen name: Biel, as reported by Puerto Rican newspaper, El Nuevo Día.
Pique later tweeted a picture of the obviously still pregnant Shakira, as the couple spent a quiet New Year’s Eve at home ahead of the impending birth.
The Hips Don’t Lie singer still managed to have a boogie while seeing in 2013: Pique also tweeted a picture of the bumpalicious dancing star donning a gold top hat, white feather boa and perfect pout.
How did you spend your NYE? Did you and your bump dance the night away?
