It’s a baby boy for Shakira and Gerard Piqué!
“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born Jan. 22nd at 9:36 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain,” the couple announced on the singer’s website.
Born at 6 lbs. 6 oz., the couple’s first child and his mother are both in “excellent health,” according to the hospital.
The pair goes on to explain the name of their newborn.
“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. And earlier today, the singer, who recently revealed her official pregnancy photos, asked fans for happy thoughts as her son’s delivery came closer.
“I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life,” she wrote. And apparently they did well!
Congratulations to the new parents... we can’t wait to meet your bundle of joy!
