Shakira Welcomes Baby Boy with Gerard Piqué

Singer Shakira has delivered a healthy baby boy, her first child with her beau Gerard Piqué, who plays for FC Barcelona.

The couple announced the wonderful news in a statement on Shakira's website:
“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 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.” 

Milan weighed 6 lbs., 6 oz., and the hospital says that both mother and child are in excellent health.  Earlier yesterday, Shakira asked for well wishes from fans on Twitter. “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life,” she tweeted.

Congrats to the happy couple and their families!
