Shakira’s father might have just blown his daughter’s cover.
In a recent interview, William Mebarak revealed that his is looking forward to being a grandad. The ecstatic old-timer left little to question about our suspicions that Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Piqué were expecting.
The source of the quotes are from La Prensa.
“Hopefully the news will be made official soon,” Mebarak said. I’m shameless ripping off the translations from Fox News Latino.
The future grandfather explained that he is happy with his daughter and Mebarak’s relationship, citing “100 percent happiness.”
“The happiness of our daughter is reflected in us too and we are very happy,” he said. “He is a valuable young man.”
That’s a whole lot of happy for one old dude…
According to gossip site TV Notas, Shakira was already two months along in her pregnancy at the beginning of the month. Reportedly, the couple are knee-deep in the nesting processing, having bought a sweet pad in Barcelona where they plan to settle.
The singer has so far denied the claims. On Twitter she called the rumors “absolutely untrue.”
“Get used to it guys,” she added jokingly. “U know that every week they make up something new ;)”
Shakira and Piqué have reportedly been dating for a few months now. The couple first met while filming a music video for her South Africa World Cup theme song “Waka Waka.”
It has been reported that Shakira’s publicist is denying the pregnancy claims. Hollyscoop has reached out for confirmation and is currently waiting on a response.
