Shakira and longtime love Gerard Pique welcomed their second son Thursday (Jan. 29, 2015) in Barcelona, Spain. The 37-year-old beauty announced the happy news on her website, where she also revealed baby no. 2’s adorable name!
“The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means “defender of mankind” and “warrior. The hospital confirmed that both mother and child are in excellent health.”
Gerard’s father also spoke out about the couple’s new baby, saying to Hello! “He’s called Sasha which is Alexander in Russian. They’ve told me he looks like Gerard. [Their first son] Milan looked like Shakira when he was born but this one looks more like his father.”
Sasha arrived via C-section on Thursday night at hospital Quirón-Teknon de Barcelona. Shakira and her FC Barcelona football player boyfriend already have one son together, 2-year-old Milan.
Shakira’s own little fútbol team is taking shape; the beauty had previously joked to Latina magazine, “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard. My own fútbol team.”
