Was Shakira Baby News A Prank?

Gerard Piqué hints that it may have been an 'innocent' joke...

Following the news that Colombian pop star Shakira had welcomed her first child into the world, it seems the birth may not have occurred at all.

It was Shakira's boyfriend, footballer Gerard Piqué, that announced the news on Twitter early this morning (Friday 28 December).

But rumour has it, the tweet could have been a prank as part of Dia de los Innocentes (Day of the Holy Innocents) - which just happens to be the Spanish equivalent of April Fool's Day.

According to the Daily Mail, Pique wrote in Spanish: "It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Holy Innocents Day to all!"

And there has so far been no official word from Shakira herself.

The She Wolf singer's due date is reportedly early next month, so we'll just have to wait and see whether the new addition arrives in 2012 or 2013.
