I was on DM this morning and saw an article about a very pregnant Shakira and her (super hot) boyfriend and how they are teaming up with Unicef (yes, the same Unicef that Diva/Child “support” and are such big “advocates” of) to host a virtual baby shower.
First off I want to say … WOW! What a gorgeous couple. They look stunning in all of the pictures. Congrats to them and their little miracle.
What struck me the most in the article is how generous the couple is being about making sure to announce that any “gifts” that people might get them should be made by donations to support babies and kids that live in poverty and need help in many ways through Unicef. Read below for some amazing quotes from the couple.
‘In lieu of receiving gifts for our baby as with a traditional shower we would like to offer support for babies who live in conditions of extreme poverty throughout the world.’
Taking over from Gerard, Sharika continues: ‘Thanks to all of you, they will receive in the form of inspired gifts therapeutic food packages, vaccines, and rehydration salts which will help save the lives of hundred of thousands of babies throughout the world.
‘We’d like to thank you in advance, and we are very very happy to know that we can count on your support.’
Which brings me to The Diva and The Child. They are three months along and have NOT ONCE mentioned anything about charities to babies, children etc… I guess they made an embarrassing attempt to donate hampers (?) to new mothers. Hampers? Cringe.
I mean if The Diva is not going to WORK or GO to charity events for new mothers, babies, children, then at least she should use her image to help babies, children and mothers by partnering with charities that specialize in this and putting her name and picture to good use!
Oh wait …. but that would require compassion for something other than herself. I still cannot get over that the only public engagement she has partaken in this year has been going to see a portrait of herself. That one engagement choice speaks volumes of her character.
What a waste of a title and platform that this girl has. Just another example to support that “sticking around” for all those years was really for the royal perks.
