“The countdown begins!” Shakira writes on Facebook. „And we’d like to invite you to participate in our world baby shower joining efforts with UNICEF.”

Thus, the pair invited their family and friends to a virtual party in honor of the arrival of their first child into the world.

With UNICEF, the singer and the footballer are leading a campaign to mark the arrival of their baby that seeks to determine people to buy gifts that will reach the world in underprivileged countries.

Fans are greeted by a message on the couple’s baby shower site.

“To celebrate the arrival of our first child, we hope that, in his name, other less privileged children in the world can have their basic needs covered through gifts and donations,” Shakira and Gerard write.

“Thank you for sharing this unforgettable moment with us.”

“Every expectant parent around the world shares all the same hopes and dreams for their children that we do,” the singer adds. “Yet many don’t share the same opportunities. Together we know we can change that.”

Those who donate for this cause will receive a personalized thank you from Shakira and Piqué.

The baby will be the most wonderful gift for their birthday. On February 2, Shakira will turn 36 and Gerard 26.
