Shakira's baby joy comes after she first announced she was expecting back in August last year.

Taking to Twitter, she said: "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!"

Following her announcement, the star's parents then let slip Shakira was expecting another boy. Speaking to Spanish mag Hola!, they said: "We're very happy. She's having another baby boy - a playmate for Milan."

The couple welcomed their first child Milan back in 2013, two years after they first began dating.
