The Grammy-winning Colombian singer is postponing promotional activities and won't perform at Friday's iHeartRadio Music festival in Las Vegas.

Shakira said in a 2009 interview that she was ready to reproduce, explaining: "I really would like to have a big belly."

She dated Antonio de La Rua, the son of former Argentinian President Fernando de la Rua, for more than a decade. They split in 2011.

Shakira is due to be a judge on next season's "The Voice."
