Shakira Probably Hasn't Had Her Baby, After All

Thursday evening, the Internet was buzzing with news that Shakira had given birth to her son. And, for good reason: Her boyfriend Gerard Pique tweeted about it!
The Spanish footballer wrote about the birth of their first child in Spanish: "Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!" Translated: "Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages."
Well, there's one slight issue: It was Día de los Santos Inocentes (Day of Innocents), a holiday recognized in Spain and Mexico that's sorta kinda like April Fool's Day. It's full of pranks and tomfoolery to celebrate Mary and Joseph tricking King Herod by smuggling Jesus out of Bethlehem before he could kill him. 
So, it's believed that Pique decided to trick all of his 4. 7 million Twitter followers into believing he'd become a dad, in honor of the holiday. All in good fun, right? 
Shakira is actually supposed to give birth in mid-January. She was most recently seen out on Christmas Day shopping for gifts in Barcelona. While it is possible that she did actually give birth, her own Twitter page has been silent since Monday and it's likelier that she's hanging out enjoying her last month of pregnancy and getting ready to usher in 2013.
