Shakira’s Birth Announcement: A Practical Joke!

Publicada Viernes Diciembre 28, 2012 11:29 AM GMT

Last night Gerard Pique tweeted that his girlfriend Shakira gave birth to their baby boy, but it turns out the whole thing was nothing more than a well-played goof.

The Barcelona FC soccer stud tweeted, “Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages,” to his almost-five million followers.

And despite the fact that the “Hips Don’t Lie” songstress isn’t due for a few months, many folks fell for it.

However, it turns out Gerard followed things up this morning with another tweet- “It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Día de los Inocentes to all!”

For those not in the know, Día de los Inocentes or Holy Innocents' Day is an April Fools-like holiday in Spain and Latin America.
