February 2 is Groundhog Day, but it's also notable for another celebrity not named Punxsutawney Phil. Shakira turns 36 today. Yes, 36 ... going on 26?

It's hard to believe, but Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known globally by her first name alone, first emerged in Colombia and Latin America in the early 1990s.

Since then, she's achieved massive success as singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer and model ... we leave anything out?

Oh right, she's going to be on The Voice Season 4!

Those hips of hers absolutely do not lie, and they recently helped her achieve her greatest moment of all: Shakira gave birth to a baby boy in January!

She and footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique just became parents for the first time (no, it's not a hoax). Expect that little guy to have some amazing genes.

How amazing? Check out our gallery of Shakira pictures below, and share your birthday greetings for the multi-talented international sensation!
