Shakira announced on her official website today that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique.

"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. 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 and I will be closely following everything that happens there! I'd like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding. Big kiss! And will see you very soon!" she wrote in a message to her fans.

The Colombian pop star and her FC Barcelona soccer player beau confirmed their relationship in March 2011 and have been inseparable ever since.

This joyous baby news isn't the only thing the "Hips Don't Lie" singer is celebrating these days! The songstress recently signed on as a replacement coach for Christina Aguilera on The Voice.

We can't wait for this little She Wolf - or He Wolf! - to make their big debut!
