It's a bouncing baby boy for Shakira! The Colombian singer welcomed her first son with boyfriend Gerard Pique, she confirmed on her 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 couple 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."
Milan weighed approximately 6 pounds, 6 ounces, and that "both mother and child are in excellent health."
Shakira asked fans earlier Tuesday on Twitter "to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life."
The "Hips Don't Lie" singer and her beau, central defender for FC Barcelona, confirmed the pregnancy in September and the sex of the baby in October.
