We awoke this morning to the good news that Shakira had given birth to a baby boy. Well at least we thought we had as Gerard Pique's tweet announcing the 'birth of his son' has turned out to be a hoax.
Taking to the social networking site earlier today, the hot footballer tweeted:
"Our son was born! We're very happy! Thank you all for your messages", in Spanish.
However, Shakira is still with child as Gerard was playing a prank on his fans and followers as today is the Spanish equivalent of April Fool's day, Dia de los Inocentes, according to a source who told E! News.
Nice one Gerard!
Speaking about the impending arrival of his son during a radio interview, Gerard admitted that they are still deciding on what to call their little bundle of joy:
“Concerning the name, we just haven’t been able to decide.
“There are ridiculous names, like Ulisito, that came out of the press’ need to report nonsense. 'There was also Biel, which we like, but I don’t think it will be that one either, or Gerard. We’ll see.”
