Is Shakira Expecting A Baby Boy?

Singer Shakira confirmed earlier this month that she’s expecting baby number two, and it looks like she may be welcoming another baby boy.

The Waka Waka World Cup singer, who is mum to 19-month-old Milan, her first child with partner Gerard Piqué, confirmed the news to Spanish Cosmopolitan, who hinted that Milan may be getting a baby brother.
Shakira’s parents Nidia Ripoll and William Mebarak Chadid also spoke of the gender to Hello! Magazine’s Spanish counterpart, saying, 'We're very happy…She's having another baby boy — a playmate for Milan.’

The star has previously spoken about her love of motherhood, telling ITV's Lorraine that having Milan taught her so much about herself. ‘I've become a student of his in a way,’ she said. ‘He has taught me to let go of the reins a little bit and be more punctual too. And all of that has to do with the fact that he’s just a wise little creature,’ she said.
