CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – Shakira baby rumors were fueled yesterday by Gerard Pique. While Shakira’s hips don’t lie, her boyfriend did trick fans announcing false news of the couple’s baby birth.
This week, some fans celebrated Dia de los Inocentes. But others that didn’t know that celebrations were underway when they received an April Fool’s Day like prank from Gerard. He told fans on Thursday that the couple’s first baby had been born. He told news “Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages.” He sent the message to his nearly five million followers.
But hours later, he revealed the prank. He said “The baby has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Dia de los Inocentes to all!”
In July, Shakira was first rumored to be pregnant. But in a news statement in September, she said “As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby! At this time we have decided to give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities planned.” Shakira meantime is still embroiled with a $100 million lawsuit brought by her ex boyfriend and former manager Antonio De La Rua.
