Gerard Pique & Shakira: Bump Watch Obligations & Observations

Pique arrived in Puerto Rico looking crazy good alongside his Spanish national teammates on Monday.

As most of you will assume – correctly – we didn’t feel like doing a scratch of work today. We had planned on catching up on the beauty sleep we missed in July, but here we are.

Shakira reportedly flew into San Juan, Puerto Rico on a private plane yesterday to meet up with her Mango model boyfriend (who’s in town for the Spain v Puerto Rico friendly), obviously reigniting those persistent pregnancy rumours amongst the international press corps.

Gossip glossy, Gente, was first out the reportage gate, claiming the couple are due to have a boy (via C-section, allegedly) in January 2013, which they’ve supposedly nicknamed Ulicito.

While the level of detail Gente is relaying (and thus, other outlets are repeating) seems suspicious on the surface, the length at which the publication has gone for the sake of this “news” is actually far more creepier than that. The rag insists it’s coverage is spot on since, after all, it managed to get a first look at Shakira’s ultrasound results, conducted 10 days ago in Miami.

We would tell you more about this story, but as we said above, we’re a month overdue on shut eye and duty calls. Feel free to read on here, find out what her musical colleagues have said on the matter, try denying the inevitable or follow the extortion storyline here.

    shakira scored ;) literally and the goal is pique's in her net

    I'm not denying anything because I don't care, but everything they do makes me doubt, they're so willing to do things just to call the attention.

    Really famous, think we are idiots, and still treat her pregnancy like a purchase of clothes, if she says the love and the son, then why not just say that she is pregnant? Because hiding something so beautiful? Unfortunately Shakira is taking advantage of dating someone who will be able to pay a very generous pension if the relationship does not last, do not believe in your love Holliwodiano! This my opinion!

    • Rosie says:

      I have no opinion on the subject in general, but of all the WAGs, Shakira is the last one who'll need to rely on a man for money!

      Who knows why people refuse to come forward information like this? Perhaps she's waiting until the end of the first trimester, which should be over any day now (if it isn't already), since that is when a lot miscarriages happen. Maybe she isn't happy about it and doesn't think that it's a "beautiful" thing, as you say.

      I agree entirely with the first part of your comment. We may not have millions, but we're certainly not that dumb!

      Lastly, I love when English language learners comment; I think it takes a lot of courage, and I wish I was brave enough to do so on sites that are in the languages I've studied.

      • Ali says:

        Well, I have to disagree with you. Shakira, for monetary reasons, may not need the public's attention with this relationship, but that attention certainly helps people remember her at this time, when she's growing older and there are lots of singers out there who are younger and hotter. We've got to admit that since she began this relationship we've been hearing a LOT more about her. And just because she is very rich does not mean that she doesn't want more money… yeah, she can have child support any time and he'll have to pay it. But I think she already got what she really wanted: the baby. Her ex didn't want marriage or children and she was getting old… I knew from the moment she and Piqué became a couple that she would get pregnant very, very soon…

        • Rosie says:

          I agree about this helping her stay in the limelight. Whether it's her goal or not, it's certainly happening. I also she didn't NEED Pique's money, not that she doesn't want any. It's two different beasts. I'd hope she's not quite that greedy, but who knows.

          Since I don't listen to much pop music, I didn't really followed her career or personal life prior to her relationship with Pique, so I had no clue about the prior boyfriend. I'm not really one to speculate on the motives of others frequently or in great depth; in my previous post, I was just stating the obvious based on what I knew was fact – she's independently wealthy.

          If all she really wanted was his sperm, it will be interesting to see what happens with this relationship.

        • EvilBean says:

          I believe each person should be true to their own dreams. If she knew that she wanted children and her ex didn’t, I can’t really blame her for leaving him. She could have chosen to get pregnant by ”accident” with her ex, she didn’t. She left him for Pique, who seems to share her dreams. we really can’t judge her for this, can we? I have no idea how their personal life are evolving around the starting a family issue. But it’s not like Pique is going to be a young father, compared to a lot of other footballers.

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      I totally agree with you.
      Expect the thumbs down, my friend, we're not very popular here…..

    • Dee espinoza says:

      U know,if it was another wag,u would understand,but saying shakira of all pple,NEEDS MONEY??? I mean,for all we know,she’s richer than pique!! And being fame hungry,here’s an assignment for u.go to the tumblr pages of other wags e.g daniella semaan,julia vigas ,antonella….e.t.c ull see that its attached to their footballers pages and everything is tagged to their footballers.go to shakira’s tumblr page………u might never see pique there,my point is,unlike other wags who got their fame thru their boyfriends and are taking advantage of it *cough daniella semaan cough*…shakira is succesful and famous thru her career!

    • Sietz says:

      I have a feeling too that she is getting what she wants from him which is his sperm. Not so much the money cause she has her own money but I dont doubt that when they break up that he will be paying her lots on child support. I just dont see this lasting. She got what she wanted from him and next year she'll be out the door with her bundle of joy. And then people will tell Pique- "You got punked!".

  4. tracy765 says:

    Pique, Shakira, bebe Ulicito…whatever. I want to know how I get to ride in a bus with a giant picture of PEPE FRIGGIN REINA on it!

    ETA: That is a bus, right? And obviously this is a rhetorical question, so I don't need a smarty pants answer about being on the Spanish NT or what have you ;)

    • EvilBean says:

      I know exactly what you mean, I secretly dream about getting drunk with Pepe Reina and dancing conga with him and maybe Villa and Ramos ;)

      • tracy765 says:

        Getting drunk with Pepe Reina = too incredible to imagine.
        Regarding that conga line, hell yes. We could even coax shy baby Nando into it. Pretty sure Pique – but probably not Cesc – would join in, too.
        I may be going too far with this fantasy.

  5. Ash Menon says:

    Somehow, gut instinct has me saying that this couple won't last. I don't know why.

  6. SillyGoat says:

    Waka-Bebe is happening!! I bet the baby is going to be gorgeous.

    Does anyone know what Ulicito or Ulicita means? No translation available on google.

    • PepaCandela says:

      it's a nickname for Ulises (Ulysses), but i haven't the slightest idea what the context is here.

      • SillyGoat says:

        Yea, I wish newspapers would explain why the baby is nicknamed Ulicito. Their nickname of waka-bebe made more sense…

  7. Ali says:

    I really don't understand why celebrities keep denying something we already know. Do they think we're idiots? Yeah, right, Shakira, the fittest singer out there, is getting fat! Oh please…. Just announce it already, we all know you're pregnant woman!

  8. Dee espinoza says:

    Im actuallu happy for them if shakira is pregnant!!coz that baby is gonna be GORGEOUS!!!i mean pique and shakira have craaazy beautiful genes!
