Shakira & Pique are having a boy and naming him Ulises!

Shakira and boyfriend Gerard Piqué already know the sex of the baby they're expecting according to rumors dating back to mid-August before the Colombian singer even announced! Reportedly, the baby is a boy and the happy couple will name him Ulises. He is scheduled to arrive at the end of December or early January.

Although the Colombian star asked the Barcelona, Spain, hospital where she's being seen to be supremely discreet about her pregnancy--to the point that she's reportedly even asked the nurses and medical personnel to sign confidentiality agreements--details about the most awaited pregnancy in recent history have began to emerge. 

We have to confess, we're sort of happy about the leaks!


I can't even begin to imagine how ecstatic Shakira and Piqué must be feeling. I'm sure Ulises is already giving little kicks--I mean, his dad IS a famous soccer player! The happy couple are said to be over the moon--and the pacifier Piqué has donned as his profile picture on his social networking pages is proof of that!

More details about Ulises' arrival: his famous mom is being seen in Barcelona's Clínika Teknon, which is headed by famed doctor Manolo García-Valdecasas, the same doctor that delivered Cristina, daughter of the King and Queen of Spain. Also according to a source, Shaki wants to be seen only by female nurses and doctors, so her current obstetrician, Dr. García-Valdecasas, is handing over her care to his daughter, Dr. Carlota García.

Who cares about Spanish royalty, when Ulises will be coming to this world as royalty himself? Music and sports royalty, that is! We're sending huge congratulations many positive thoughts to Shakira and Piqué in this journey to Shaki becoming a happy and healthy Mamá Latina!
