Shakira and Pique host ‘virtual baby shower’

SOON-to-be parents Shakira and Gerard Pique have invited the public to their upcoming baby shower.

The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer and her footballer boyfriend have opted for more charitable gift suggestions than the usual blankets and teddy bears though.

Teaming up with UNICEF to host a ‘virtual baby shower’, fans of the couple can purchase presents for some of the world’s most in-need children and communities.

Upon entering the website, visitors are greeted with a personal message from the pair reading: “As you all know, we will soon be welcoming our first child into the world, and to celebrate his birth we’ve organised a virtual baby shower in association with UNICEF.

“Thanks to all of you, they will receive therapeutic food packages, vaccines, and re-hydration salts which will help save the lives of hundred of thousands of babies throughout the world” added the singer.

While the due date has not yet been revealed, the couple will soon be joined by a baby boy at their home in Barcelona.
