During a visit to Barcelona, Spain, the parents told “Hello! Magazine’s” sister publication “Hola!” that Shakira and her soccer beau Gerard Pique are expecting their second son.

The singer from Baranquilla is expecting, “Another little boy. A play pal for Milan,” the proud grandparents told the magazine.

They also said the boy is expected to be born January 2015, but they stopped short of saying what their next grandson’s name will be.

At the end of the day, we’re sure the Waka Waka singer will make that announcement in due time!

Shakira herself hasn’t confirmed the child’s gender publicly, but she has expressed her excitement for being pregnant with 19-month-old Milan sibling, the star’s first child with Pique.

“Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!” Shakira told her near 27million Twitter followers in late August.

Pique and Shakira have been a couple for four years now, and have proven how proud they are of their little Milan, taking him to many public appearances.

We’re sure they’ll make great parents to their new boy.
