Congratulations are in order for Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Pique:

The Colombian singer has given birth to a baby boy! 

Pique tweeted the birth announcement Thursday night in Spanish. Translated, it said, "Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages."

Shakira will serve as a mentor on The Voice this spring and Pique is a soccer player for FC Barcelona. This is the first child for the both parents. Here's wishing them the best!

UPDATE: Wow, Pique totally got us. Soon after his initial Tweet, the NON-baby daddy wrote something that translates to:

“It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Day of the Innocents to all!”

Day of the Innocents is Spain's equivalent of April Fool's Day.

Colombian pop superstar Shakira is being sued for $100 million by ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua, who claims he acted as her business manager for years.

He claims he was the "principal architect" of a business plan that turned her into an icon and seeks to "recover his share of past and future partnership profits."

In a separate case, Shakira is suing de la Rua for misappropriation of funds.

Her legal case, filed in the Bahamas in October, accuses him of paying himself an unauthorized bonus and using funds from their business for personal expenses.

Antonio de la Rua denies the allegations. His legal papers, however, provide a rare insight into the intricacies of sustaining a global pop career such as Shakira's.

The Voice Season 3 just got underway, but is there already a casting shake-up in the works for Season 4? According to a new report, at least, there may well be:

Usher and Shakira are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Alleged insiders say Shakira and Usher would take the place of Christina and Cee Lo alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton at the end of the current season.

Earlier this month, Aguilera opened up to Ryan Seacrest about the show, admitting she once viewed her job as a coach on The Voice "kind of like a side project."

"[I thought], 'It'll keep me close to my son [Max, 4] in L.A. I don't have to travel," the Grammy winner said. "Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!"

The Voice sources say Christina will use her break from the program to focus on tours and promotional duties surrounding the release of her new album, Lotus.

Christina Aguilera's "Your Body", the first single from the upcoming record, is already out. Green, for his part, is currently working with NBC on a new show.

The rumor comes just as speculation surrounding American Idol's revolving door ends: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will join Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as judges.

What do you think? Should Usher and Shakira join The Voice?

Her hips may not lie, but do they print money?

About two years since splitting with long-time boyfriend Antonio de la Rúa, Shakira is now facing a lawsuit from her ex... for $250 million!

According to Mexican newspaper El Universal, de la Rúa says in legal documents that he resigned as a publicist while dating the gorgeous singer, eventually growing into her business manager.

As a result, he believes he's entitled to 18 percent of Shakira's $100 million deal with entertainment giant Live Nation. He also wants chunks of estates owned by the estranged couple in Uruguay and New York.

Shakira and de la Rúa broke up in August 2010 and went public with that news in January 2011.

Warning to Kate Upton: Shakira is seeing your Cat Daddy dance and raising you the following music video for "Addicted to You."

The pint-sized artist has come out with the video for her latest single and, as always, it's far from unsexy. Watch now, as Shakira - with a shorter haircut than usual - shakes her hips and dances with that belly:

“Me besaste esa noche/Cual si fuera el último día de tu boca/Cada que yo me acuerdo/Yo siento en mi pecho el peso de una roca,” Shakira sings in the song, lyrics that translate to:

“You kissed me that night/As if it were the last day of your mouth/Everytime I recall/In my chest I feel the weight of a rock.”
