With all of the baby news this week, it seems only natural that Shakira would follow suit and give birth to her own long-awaited offspring.

After all, celebrities always do things in groups of three, right? Alas, that isn’t the case with the Loca singer, as it turns out that her boyfriend, Gerard Piqué’s recent Twitter announcement about the birth of their first baby boy was, in fact, a prank.

On the 28th, Pique tweeted the announcement in Spanish, which roughly translates to: “Our son is already born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!”, but since the timing fits in with Día de los Santos Inocentes (the equivalent of April Fool's Day) across the Spanish-speaking world, the announcement came across as more than a little suspicious. It turns out that the fans were right to suspect the couple of foul play and, less than twelve hours later, Gerard came out with a follow up announcement, sharing that the baby’s name is Innocent and wishing his fans a happy Day of the Innocent. No baby then, how disappointing! Don’t toy with our feelings like that, Gerard!

Well, even if it won’t be a Christmas baby, from recent pictures of the singer it is obvious that the date is close at hand. We here at Contact Music would like to wish the happy couple a happy and healthy baby in due time!
