On the go: Heavily pregnant Shakira was pictured doing some Christmas shopping last Monday in Barcelona
She may be eight months pregnant but Shakira is showing no signs of slowing down. Keeping active, the make-up free star, 35, enjoyed a luxury shopping trip in Barcelona last Monday.
Despite her large baby bump, Shakira stayed on the feet as she spied out potential buys for Christmas gifts in the busy shopping area of Passeig de Gràcia.
Shakira wore her blonde locks up in a ponytail as she made her way around various stores.

Shakira's partner Gerard Piqué recently confirmed in a radio interview that the super star is not planning on slowing down work wise and will release a new album after the baby's birth early 2013.
'The album will be released after the baby is born because she’d need to go on tour and she can’t do that now’, FC Barcelona’s centre-back said.
'And it’s very likely that there will be a song in Catalan, it could even be ‘Boig per tu’ (‘Crazy for you’).
The couple confirmed earlier they are expecting a son, but the footballer says they have yet to pick a name for their firstborn. 'Concerning the name, we just haven’t been able to decide', Gerard said.
'There are ridiculous names, like Ulisito, that came out of the press’ need to report nonsense. There was also Biel, which we like, but I don’t think it will be that one either, or Gerard. We’ll see.'
