Colombian singer and dancer Shakira shook her hips to worldwide crossover success, becoming the second-most successful female Latin singer of all time (after Gloria Estefan). Born Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll in 1977 to a Colombian mother and a Lebanese father, she started writing songs as a child and performed in local talent shows. Her debut album, titled ‘Magia,’ dropped in 1991 and started her successful Spanish-language career. A decade later, she released her first English album, ‘Laundry Service.’ It peaked on the U.S. charts at No. 3 and featured the smash single ‘Whenever, Wherever.’ Shakira’s other big hits include the infectious ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ and the 2010 World Cup theme ‘Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).’ She raised her stateside profile even further with a pair of coaching stints on ‘The Voice.’
Looks like little Milan Piqué Mebarak is going to be a big brother!
Late last month, Shakira confirmed reports that she and boyfriend Gerard Piqué were expecting their second child. Now it appears that they will be giving birth to another baby boy, according to the Spanish edition of Cosmopolitan (via Us Weekly).
Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, One Direction and other top music stars are being recognized for various achievements and milestones in the 2015 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. The annual list of record holders will be hitting bookshelves on Sept. 10.
If Shakira ever feels the need to connect with her fans, all she needs to do is log onto Facebook. The 37-year-old Colombian singer is the first female celebrity to hit 100 million likes, which makes her the "most liked" female personality on the social network site.
