Gerard Pique

Prior to the birth of his baby boy, Gerard Pique pulled a prank on Shakira's fans. The soccer star took to Twitter in December 2012 (roughly a month before Milan was born) to share a fake birth announcement. "Our son has been born!” he wrote in Spanish. “We’re very happy! Thank you all for your messages!” Fans of the father-to-be soon figured out it was all a joke when they realized it was Dia de Los Santos Inocentes, a holiday similar to April Fools, in Spain and parts of Latin America.
