It's not a hoax... this time Shakira has given birth for real! Shakira and her boyfriend, star soccer player Gerard Piqué, welcomed a baby boy in Spain. The happy mother shared the news in a post in three languages on her Facebook wall and on her website. It reads:
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.
All the best to Shakira, Gerard and baby Milan!
