This time it’s for real! We saw Shakira heading to the hospital earlier today and now we can officially congratulate the singer on becoming a mom! Shakira delivered a son earlier today in Barcelona and released the following official statement on her website;
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.
Awww, love the name Milan! Congratulations to the happy couple!
