Barranquilla (Columbia): Colombian singer Shakira has refuted reports claiming that she pregnant for the third time with partner and Barcelona star Gerard Pique's baby. She has even clarified that there are no marriage plans.

"For now, there is no plan for a wedding nor am I pregnant. We're very happy the way we are," the 39-year-old was reported as saying by Fox News Latino.
The singer further stressed on squashing the pregnancy rumours that have been doing the rounds for quite some time.
"Because I have paparazzi at my door going through the garbage to see if they can find any proof of pregnancy, let me make it clear: I'm not pregnant, so they can go home and wash their little hands," said Shakira who was here in Barranquilla to shoot a music video for the song La Bicicleta with fellow pop singer and compatriot Carlos Vives.
Explaining how she juggles playing the role of a mother of two sons — Sasha (1) and Milan (3) — and her professional career as a pop singer, Shakira said her partner Pique is of great help whenever she is away shooting.
"Daddy (Pique) helps me, so I can spend plenty of time in the recording studio. He says, 'You'd better make one really spectacular disc.'"
