Shakira covered up her growing bump in a loose-fitting black top and flared jeans as the pair went for a meal and to the local cinema.

But while the Hips Don't Lie singer's curves were kept under wraps, Shakira's smile said it all as the singer grinned widely for the waiting photographers.

Meanwhile, Gerard, who, at 25, is 10 years his girlfriend's junior, looked equally thrilled with the news that the pair will soon extend their family.

I would have never known this is Shakira. I'm used to her more bombastic image. She looks normal and happy. Glad for her!

@urbandprincess: everyone knows, or should know, that dyeing one's hair while pregnant is NOT advised especially in the first trimester. *rolls eyes* - Karen M , Colorado Springs, United States, 23/9/2012 00:34******rolling eyes straight back......we live in 2012. A hair colour isnt going to damage any thing or anyone. Maybe she should just lock herself away in cotton wool and eat only vegetables too. Seriously. All this namby pambying is pathetic. No excuse. Sort the hair or stay indoors
