Pregnant Shakira only recently confirmed that she is expecting again, but already the sex of her baby has been revealed... and by her parents!

Colombian singer Shakira revealed at the end of last month that she was expecting her second child with footballer husband Gerad Pique and according to wide reports the 37-year-old's parents were so excited by their daughter's news they accidentally let slip she is going to have a boy.

Speaking to Hola! - a Spanish magazine - Shakira's mother, Nidia Ripoll, revealed another baby boy was on the way for her daughter, who is already mum to her one-year-old son Milan.

Giving the baby's sex away, she said: "We're very happy. She's having another baby boy - a playmate for Milan."

With rumours circulating Shakira was expecting for a long while before the 'Hips Don't Lie' singer actually confirmed her news herself, we can't help but think Shakira won't be too pleased to hear her mum's latest revelation!

Keeping silent about her pregnancy until the end of August, Shakira finally announced she was expanding her brood over Twitter.

On 28 August, she tweeted: "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!"
