Her hips don't lie, and now, neither does Shakira. The Colombian pop star — who is set to temporarily replace Christina Aguilera on "The Voice" next season — finally confirmed the rumor that she and her soccer star beau, Gerard Pique, are expecting a baby. "As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" the 35-year-old wrote on her website on Wednesday. "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," including her performance at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas this weekend. But, she adds, "I'm sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular and I will be closely following everything that happens there! … Big kiss!"

According to Colombian magazine Gente, Shakira and the Spanish-born Pique, 25, are expecting a baby boy, who is set to arrive in January. The report from last month adds that the couple has already nicknamed him Ulicito. Shakira's pregnancy was first reported in July when she was spotted visiting an obstetrician in Miami.

Shakira and Pique, who plays center back for FC Barcelona, have been dating since at least March 2011, just two months after she announced her split from her boyfriend of 11 years, Antonio de la Rua, the son of a former president of Argentina. Earlier that year, it had been rumored that she was already seeing Pique, although she denied it.

The two first met in the spring of 2010, about the same time he appeared in the music video for her World Cup anthem, "Waka Waka," and the same year Spain took the title. Since then, Shakira has been spotted cheering on her man at FC Barcelona games all over the world, including a match in Dallas last year.

But not all is so rosy for Shakira. Her ex, de la Rua, is suing her for $250 million because he claims he gave up his career as a publicist to solely focus on brokering deals for her, including one for $100 million with Live Nation.
