Shakira's Baby Prank: Gerard Pique Birth Tweets a Hoax?

Shakira‘s beau Gerard Pique caused quite the stir when he tweeted that his love had given birth to a baby boy mere hours ago, however, it has been speculated that the whole announcement has been a big prank based on Spain’s April Fools Day – the Day of Innocents.

“Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!” Gerard wrote in his first tweet, which translates to: “Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages!”

Hours later, he wrote “Ya tiene nombre! Se llama Inocencio! Feliz Día de los Inocentes a todos!”, which translates to: “It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Day of the Innocents to all!”

Looks like Shakira and Gerard may have pranked us!!!! Stay tuned for more info…

    In Spain today is the equivalent to April Fools Day, but I think is a bad joke.

  • Dave Franco

    Just awful! Celebrity induced obsessed culture. Disgusting.

  • BettyBoo

    I’m sure he could have come up with something else instead of using the birth of his child for a prank/Joke. Also if this is really a prank, i have to say it is not that funny bro……TRY YOUR LUCK AGAIN NEXT YEAR.

  • Cynthia

    Feliz día de los Inocentes!!! hahahahah

  • Ashley

    who cares !!!

  • Milo

    Shakira calls herself a mongrel because she is mixed race (Lebanese, Spanish & Italian). But when she sings, she sounds more like a dying cat.

  • Ftw

    This guy is “special” when he is trying to be funny,in one Clasico two years ago he humillated his spanish friends from Real Madrid showing his hand after Barcelona won 5-0.He is not funny at all and i hate Barca more and more when he does stupid things

  • sexymama

    The birth of a baby isnt something to joke about. It’s an important date! Merry Christmas…

  • mel

    Why are people getting so mad about the joke? It’s not like they said someone died.. because THAT would be terrible!

  • XxXxX

    @Milo: I would say more like a goat dying… listen to it well.

  • XxXxX

    Bad, bad prank….. Bad. Just bad. It’s not funny. He seems full of himself. I can’t bbelieve Shakira left her over 10 years relationship to make a baby right away with this jerk

  • Lulani

    Nobody cares about these two attention seekers!!! Shakira is not Latina! She is a Colombian than speaks the Latin language! Gerard however is Latino born!!!! European! Get it right! But they are annoying and clearly trying to get attention

  • Meme

    I think it’s a bad joke to play. He got 3000+ likes and 100+ comments in the first minute alone, I saw it on my Facebook feed. Obviously someone in his position knows the fans take it to heart and leave loving messages. Making a joke like that is kind of disrespectful to them….to watch these ordinary people get so worked up and give your family their congratulations…it’s in bad taste. I like Shakira, but I think Pique is kind of immature. After all, he is only 25!

  • jaira

  • Jessie
