Shakira has given birth to a baby boy, her first child with 25-year-old footballer Gerard Pique.
The gorgeous singer, 35, made an announcement about the labour on her Twitter page, before confirming the happy news on her official website.
Shortly before being admitted to the Teknon clinic in Barcelona, she tweeted: “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak”
Then came the lovely news… “We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Pique Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Pique, 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.”
Shakira has been dating Gerard for around two years and said he was the “best thing” to ever happen to her until she got pregnant. She said: “This man is the best thing that could have happened in my life. And now the baby!”
Congrats, guys! Lots of love, cake and blue balloons from LOOK. RM
