On Monday NBC announced that Shakira
would be a coach on the spring edition of The Voice, and today the singer made another big announcement. The woman who can shake her hips better than anyone is pregnant with her first child. She broke the news on her site by saying, “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.”
According to Huff Post Voces
back in mid-August she was about 17 weeks pregnant back then (although in the picture that Shakira
Tweeted on 9/12 she doesn’t look that far along) and expecting the little one around the beginning of the New Year. If that is the case, then what does that mean for The Voice? Will that give her enough time after having the baby to do the show? Will her pregnancy affect when she can tape the blind auditions since the fall edition is already on the air and two of the coaches are tied up doing that for the next few months. An email sent to the show’s publicists has yet to be answered.
