Shakira Gives Birth to a Boy!

by at . Comments

Shakira has given birth to her first child. For real this time!

A few weeks after Gerard Piqué pranked fans and claimed the singer had welcomed a son into the world, the couple confirmed today that Milan Piqué Mebara was born in Barcelona. He weighed in at 6 lbs, 6 oz. and mother and child are both in excellent condition.

Wrote Shakira on her 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.”

Shakira and Piqué announced their pregnancy in September and their child's gender a month later.

THG sends nothing but our best wishes to the expanded family!
