Congratulations to Shakira and her boyfriend, Gerard Pique! After months of rumors, she and the FC Barcelona soccer player officially announced that they are expecting their first child together.

The songstress, who is also apparently one of the replacements for 'The Voice' coaching panel next season, shared the news with fans via her personal website. Her iHeart Radio Festival appearance has been canceled in wake of the news, but who cares! She's gonna be a flippin' mom!

Shakira's note reads as follows:

"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 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.
Big kiss!
And will see you very soon!
Shakira"

Shakira and Pique officially confirmed their relationship in March 2011 and have been inseparable ever since. We are so happy for the 'Rabiosa' songstress and her beau! There's no doubt that she will make a fantastic mother -- and, coming from a professional belly dancer and soccer star, we're also pretty sure that their little bundle of joy will have some of the fanciest footwork around.
