Shakira and Gerard Piqué Latin crossover sensation Shakira and boyfriend, Gerard Piqué, welcomed their first son into the world on January 22nd.
The proud couple, who were in Piqué's hometown of Barcelona, Spain for the baby's arrival, have named their bundle of joy Milan Piqué Mebarak.
In a joint announcement on the singer's website, the new parents shared:
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.
Baby Milan weighed approximately 6 lbs., 6 oz., and the hospital confirms both mother and child are doing well.
Outlets ignited when Shakira hinted at the impending birth on her Twitter account, asking for fans' prayers "on this very important day".Read More »from Shakira Welcomes Baby Boy
