It’s been confirmed. Shakira was said to have given birth to a baby boy on Tuesday in Barcelona, Spain. Reports circulating from the Spanish media claim that the sexy singer gave birth by cesarean section. She tweeted a few hours earlier.
“I want to ask you to accompany me with your prayers in this important day of my life.”
This is the first child for the Colombian singer and her boyfriend soccer player Gerard Pique. The couple announced his birth, a son named Milan Piqué Mebarak, on the singer’s website!
“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born Jan. 22 at 9:36 p.m., in Barcelona, Spain,” read the announcement on the website.
“The name Milan (prononced 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 Milan weighed approximately six lbs. six ounces, and that both Shakira and her new baby are in excellent health.
