Shakira and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, announced via Facebook Wednesday that the couple is expecting their first child. The "Get It Started" singer wrote in a note to fans, "At this time we have decided to give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities planned over the next few days."

That means Shakira has cancelled her performance at Las Vegas' iHeart Radio festival this weekend, but she won't be gone for long—Shakira will be stepping in to co-judge the upcoming season of The Voice this spring. She continued in her Facebook note, "I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding. Big kiss! And will see you very soon!"

Many congrats to Shakira!
