Barcelona’s stars are on fire. On the pitch, and off it, scoring at will, again, on and off.
As the Spanish giants move 8 points clear of Real Madrid in the Spanish top division, Gerrard Pique is having a baby with pop star Shakira.
The couple tweeted a picture showing Shakira heavily pregnant.

Along with the adorable snap, the Colombian singer wrote: 'Podría estar 9 meses más así! I could have another 9 months like this! Shak.'
Shakira appears to being enjoying a pregnancy glow and she seemed fresh-faced and relaxed in the cute snap. While the singer is clearly enjoying the build up to her little one's arrival she is also keeping busy with work.
The 'Hips Don't Lie' singer has already been performing during her pregnancy as well as filming for the next series of the US show The Voice, where she is taking on the role of a judge.
The talent show starts in March and she will be releasing a new album around that time.
Shakira will be doing all this while juggling being a mother for the first time with her baby, who is due early in 2013.
Lionel Messi's girlfriend Antonella Rocuzzo recently gave birth to a baby boy, named Thiago.
Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta, became the father of a baby girl last year.
Cesc Fabregas, meanwhile, has the Lebanese beauty Daniella Semaan on his arm.
Should he have a baby with her as well, Barcelona’s next-gen will have emerged, defence, midfield and attack.
