NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Pregnant singing sensation Shakira and boyfriend soccer star Gerard Pique are asking fans to buy gifts for underprivileged children instead of showering them with items for their first child.

The Colombian entertainer who is also a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF has set up a website where fans can spend as little as $5 to buy a mosquito net or $10 for polio vaccines.

"The countdown begins! And we'd like to invite you to participate in our World Baby Shower joining efforts with UNICEF" reads a post accompanied by a picture of the couple on Shakira.com.

The 35-year-old and Pique are expecting a boy.

    In the TV neighborhood of YesterYear, there are shows a certain generation will never forget. It might sound crazy, but reruns of many 1990s classics still score big TV ratings. A recent Simpsons marathon on FXX, for example, averaged more than 1 million viewers. According to examiner.com, that was better than the competition at TBS, Comedy Central, and even the NFL Network.
