Shakira Gives Birth to a Baby Boy
The singer and boyfriend Gerard Piqué welcome their first child together.
The "Hips Don't Lie" singer gave birth in a Barcelona hospital at 9:36 p.m. According to The Voice judge, she decided to name her son Milan because "the name Milan, means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification."
She teased fans of her baby's impending birth this morning, tweeting, "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day in my life. Shak"
The 35-year-old new mom originally had a due date of Jan. 20, but she and her soccer player beau had hoped that the baby would be born on Feb. 2 when they both celebrate their birthdays.
While the baby arrived sooner than the February date -- and a bit later than expected, the birth date still contains a special number (two) for the couple.released a photo posing semi-nude in honor of their special baby shower celebration, which gave proceeds to UNICEF to help impoverished children worldwide.
