Shakira expecting 2nd baby

Shakira is pregnant with baby No. 2.

The Colombian singer made the announcement on her Facebook and Twitter pages on Thursday. Her representative confirmed that the accounts were real.

The Grammy winner wrote: “Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!”

No more details about the pregnancy were revealed.

Shakira and soccer player Gerard Pique, 27, welcomed their son, Milan Pique Mebarak, last year.

'View' boss

Rachel Maddow's top producer at MSNBC is the new man in charge on the daytime talk show “The View.”

ABC announced Thursday that Bill Wolff is the new executive producer of “The View,” which begins a new season Sept. 15. Wolff replaces Bill Geddie, who decided not to stay when ABC said Wolff would be brought in alongside him. Three other behind-the-scenes appointments were made.

More panelists are expected to be named to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell.

Green pleads

Cee Lo Green pleaded no contest Friday to one felony count of furnishing Ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles and was sentenced to serve probation and community service.

The Grammy-winning singer also entered a special plea in which he maintained his innocence in the case and that prevents his plea from being used against him in civil court. The drug case could be used against Green in criminal court if he faces another drug offense.

Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced the 39-year-old singer to three years of formal probation and 45 days of community service. Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, will be allowed to travel for work and permitted to see a private physician for drug and alcohol counseling, the judge said.

Green also can serve his community service through MusiCares Foundation, an affiliate of the organization that presents the Grammy Awards.
