Most celebrities, and common people alike, celebrate the anticipated arrival of their unborn child by throwing a lavish baby shower complete with adorned wicker chairs and baby themed settings. But if you’re Shakira, your baby's arrival is rooted in charity.
The singer tweeted out a photo of herself alongside boyfriend Gerard Pique showing off her massive baby bump with a tweet that read: “We'd like to celebrate the imminent birth of our first child with all of you. #babyshower.”
The hashtag is an invitation to join the “Shakira and Gerard Pique’s World Baby Shower” movement with UNICEF.
The UNICEF community describes the movement as follows:
“It's online, it's interactive, and it's for the benefit of babies everywhere. Shakira and Gerard want to highlight how children around the world still suffer from preventable illnesses, and they want your help!”
The "Hips Don't Lie" singer has worked with UNICEF since 2003 as one of the charity’s Goodwill Ambassadors, and she isn't letting her baby bump slow down her charity.
