Shakira Gives Birth to Baby Boy!
Days after they hosted an online baby shower for UNICEF, Colombian superstar Shakira and her husband, Gerard Piqué, have announced the birth of their first child – a beautiful (we’re assuming) and healthy baby boy!
Here is the statement posted to Shakira’s Facebook page today (Jan 22),
We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain.
The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.
Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.
The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6lbs. 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.
Shakira also sent out a tweet this morning right before her and Piqué’s son arrived saying,
“I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak,”
Congratulations Shakira! Now bring on the baby pics!
