Shakira recently announced she is expecting her first child together with Gerard Pique and now she has done another first.
Shakira, 35, who is around six-months pregnant, shared a picture of herself that shows off her baby bump for the very first time.
She looks positively radiant in the image that shows her in a lovely purple dress that cannot hide her growing bump.
The Colombian star posted the picture on Facebook on Saturday afternoon and added the caption: “Now I don’t have a six pack, only one pack!!”
Almost instantly after sharing the intimate photograph fans inundated her with well wishes and congratulations.
The picture received almost 50,000 comments and had near 400,000 people saying they liked it.
Shakira announced last month that she was five months pregnant with her first child.
She wrote on her Facebook page: “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.”
Her baby joy comes nearly two years after she started dating Gerard Pique.
The handsome couple met in 2010 while shooting the video to her song Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).
The song was the official track of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, which was won by Spain.
Earlier this year, Shakira and Gerard Pique made the all-important decision to live together and recently purchased a large home in Esplugues de Llobregat, Barcelona.
Her romance with Gerard Pique comes after she was in an 11-year relationship with Argentine lawyer Antonio de la Rua.
Coincidentally, Antonio de la Rua has also revealed this month he is set to become a father for the first time.
His girlfriend, former Miss Colombia Daniela Ramos, 24, is four months pregnant with his child.
