Shakira took to social media to assure her fans that her youngest son Sasha was feeling better while also thanking them for all the get-well messages.

"Everything is under control now, and he's back to his cheerful self," she tweeted Tuesday (Nov. 15) with a selfie of her and the adorable Sasha. 

Just last week, the Colombian singer canceled her performances at the Latin Grammys (Nov. 17) and American Music Awards (Nov. 20); it was previously announced she would be performing with Carlos Vives

Although it wasn't confirmed that her son's health was the reason behind her performance cancellations, the "Chantaje" singer cited "personal matters" for her inability to travel to Las Vegas or Los Angeles and said she would be accompanying Vives "in spirit." 

The pair's "La Bicicleta" is up for two Latin Grammys, song of the year and record of the year, at Thursday's show.
