“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 35-year-old singer announced on her site. She explained that the name Milan means; “dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”
The baby weighed 6lbs. 6 ounces, a tiny little thing, and according to another post on Shakira’s site, “both mother and child are in excellent health.” Great news!
Before giving birth to the baby, both Shakira and Gerard gave a heads up to their fans via their respective Twitter and Instagram accounts; “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak,” the happy mom-to-be posted. Meanwhile, Gerard couldn’t wait for the arrival of his little one; “This Tuesday (22 of January) our first son will be born.”
Congratulations to the happy family and lots of love to little Milan!
