POP star Shakira and Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué have announced the birth of their son Milan.

“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,” it was announced on the singer’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.”

The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6lbs. 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.

Teaming up with UNICEF to host a ‘virtual baby shower’, fans of the couple can purchase presents for some of the world’s most in-need children and communities.

Upon entering the website, visitors are greeted with a personal message from the pair reading: “As you all know, we will soon be welcoming our first child into the world, and to celebrate his birth we’ve organised a virtual baby shower in association with UNICEF.

“Thanks to all of you, they will receive therapeutic food packages, vaccines, and re-hydration salts which will help save the lives of hundred of thousands of babies throughout the world” added the singer.
