Hips don't lie and apparently pregnancy tests don't either: Shakira is going to be a mom!

The Latina songstress, 35, took to her Facebook page today to announce the impending bundle of joy with Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, writing, "As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!"

What a very casual announcement for the mama-to-be! But the news may be bittersweet (at least momentarily) for Shakira's diehard fans:

"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," Shakira continues. "This means I will not be able to be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but I'm sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular!"

The baby announcement comes on the heels of word that Shakira will fill Christina Aguilera's seat for the fourth cycle of The Voice coming this spring. And now it makes total sense why this gig is absolutely perfect for the "Waka Waka" singer.

Now those hopefuls will have to impress a chair fit for two. Mazel tov, happy couple! Can't wait to see what moves that baby has.
