Happy Dia de los Inocentes! Shakira’s baby daddy Gerard Pique pulled a fast one on the world today by tweeting about the birth of his son, saying, “Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!”
If your Spanish is not as fluent as ours — allow us. That translates to, “Our son was born! We're very happy! Thank you all for your messages.” As you can imagine, the web kicked into high gear with news outlet after news outlet announcing the baby news and fans flooding the pop star and her boyfriend with well wishes. But it was all a big prank!
Today is Dia de los Inocentes, which is essentially Spanish version of April Fool’s Day. Girard, the gorgeous prankster, posted a follow-up tweet saying, “He has a name! His name is Innocence! Happy Day of the Innocents to everyone!”
