Shakira Welcomes A Son

It's a boy for Shakira and Gerard Piqué.

"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 pair announced on Shakira's website.

"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."

In detail, Milan weighed  6 lbs., 6 oz., and the hospital claims that both mother and child are in excellent health.

Earlier in the day, Shakira had requested good thoughts from fans as her son's delivery approached. "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life," Shakira, 35, wrote on twitter.

It has to be mentioned that Shakira and
Piqué, central defender for FC Barcelona, announced the pregnancy in September and the sex of the baby in October. Earlier this month, Piqué, 25, and Shakira celebrated their baby shower, with all proceeds benefitting UNICEF.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
