Shakira has birthed a bouncing baby boy!
The Colombian-born singer and her man, Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, welcomed a son tonight in Barcelona, their first child together.
The proud mamá revealed his name, Milan Piqué Mebarak, in a tweet, and then her camp helpfully filled us in on the meaning!
“The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification,” read a statement on Shakira’s website.
“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 6 pounds, 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.”
“I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak,” Shakira had tweeted this morning, in both English and Spanish, before her and Piqué’s son arrived at 9:36 p.m.
