Shakira has not only revealed that she’s expecting a baby boy, she also added that she will be taking her son to charity tips, in hopes that he will realize he can change the world and make it a better place for people less fortunate than him. The singer who announced her pregnancy to footballer Gerard Piqué two weeks ago, confirmed the news of the baby’s sex yesterday.
Shakira, who will become a mother for the first time revealed: ”It’s gonna be a boy,” Shakira told RTL. “This guy [Piqué] is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life. And now we are having a baby.” Adding that she’ll take her son on charity trips to help other people, she continued: ”When the baby is born, I’ll take him with me on charity trips,” the singer vowed. “He shall learn that he is able to change the world.”
Meanwhile, the singer is gearing up to become a mentor on The Voice’s next season in 2013 as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green have confirmed they will be taking one season off to focus on their music career. ”Having award-winning artists as coaches means they need to be able to tour,” said executive producer of the show, Mark Burnett.
“Whether in the red chair or on tour, our coaches have their chairs for life. This is exactly why, after three seasons, we needed to allow them to rotate out so they can get on the road amongst their fans. Meanwhile, we’re incredibly excited to have singular artists like Usher and Shakira joining the fold.”
