Though we can’t wait to see Shakira joking around with her Voice co-stars come March, the Colombian pop singer was nowhere to be seen at this weekend’s Television Critics Association (TCA) event in Pasadena, Calif. 

The press party was attended by fellow coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, and even host Carson Daly was present. But Shakira was across the world in Spain preparing for the arrival of her first child, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Latin pop sensation announced her pregnancy back in September, and has been glowing ever since. Shakira and soccer star boyfriend, Gerard Pique, are expecting a bouncing baby boy sometime this month.

Thanks to the March 25 premiere date of The Voice Season 4, Shakira will have several months to enjoy some time with her newest addition, especially since the blind auditions, battle rounds, and knockout rounds are all pre-taped.

But for now we send the star our warmest well wishes! We can’t wait to see the little tyke and to find out if Shakira actually took Adam Levine up on his offer to give the baby his name.
