For the sake of charity, Shakira is sharing a half-nude picture of her and her husband, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique, holding her pregnant belly.

After posting the photo on her Facebook page, Shakira asked her fans to participate in the celebration of her baby boy by donating to UNICEF (The United Nation's Children's Fund). Instead of receiving baby shower gifts, the couple has set up a page enabling their followers to "help UNICEF save children's lives." Donors can choose dollar amounts based off of practical items ($50 for oral rehydration salt, $37 for a baby scale, $10 for a polio vaccine, etc), or can choose their own dollar amount.

"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," reads a message from the expecting couple. "Thank you for sharing this unforgettable moment with us.

Shakira and Pique, a star in his own right for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team, have been sharing a lot of photos of their baby on social media. Pique even proudly posted the first sonogram of their son. While the mom-to-be will soon be appearing on season four of The Voice, Pique is currently in the middle of the La Liga season with Barcelona.
