Shakira, 35, and her husband soccer player, Gerard Pique, 25, announced the arrival of their baby boy born mid-evening on Tuesday. The labor and delivery came two days after her due date.
Shakira first tweeted her pending labor, perhaps on the way to the hospital, earlier on Tuesday, writing, “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life”.
Shakira’s rep later confirmed the arrival of the couple’s son, along with the name of their brand new bouncing baby boy, Milan.
In a statement, Shakira’s rep said, “We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36 pm, in Barcelona, Spain”.
Milan came in to the world weighing 6 lbs., 6 oz. Both Shakira and baby are said to be doing very well.
