February 2 is Groundhog Day, but it's also notable for another celebrity not named Punxsutawney Phil. Shakira turns 36 today. Yes, 36 ... going on 26?

It's hard to believe, but Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known globally by her first name alone, first emerged in Colombia and Latin America in the early 1990s.

Since then, she's achieved massive success as singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer and model ... we leave anything out?

Oh right, she's going to be on The Voice Season 4!

One day after giving birth to her first child, Shakira has given fans their first look at baby Milan. Sort of.

In a WhoSay photo posted by Gerard Pique, we see the little one's feet and his Nikes, adorned with the child's name and the simple, appropriate caption: "Milan's feet!"

Upon close examination, you can even spot the tyke's medical ID bracelet...

Shakira Baby Feet

Milan was born on January 22 in Barcelona, Spain. His name means "dear, loving and gracious" in Slavic and both mother and child are reported to be in excellent condition.

Fans will be able to see for themselves when Shakira joins the panel for The Voice Season 4.

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!

Congratulations are in order for Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Pique:

The Colombian singer has given birth to a baby boy!

Shakira will serve as a mentor on The Voice this spring and Pique is a soccer player for FC Barcelona. This is the first child for the both parents. Here's wishing them the best!

UPDATE: Wow, Pique totally got us. Soon after his initial Tweet, the NON-baby daddy wrote something that translates to:

“It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Day of the Innocents to all!”

Day of the Innocents is Spain's equivalent of April Fool's Day.

The foursome immediately argues over what to play on the radio, until they arrive at a surprising consensus … and are nearly busted by host Carson Daly. Take a look ...

Colombian pop superstar Shakira is being sued for $100 million by ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua, who claims he acted as her business manager for years.

He claims he was the "principal architect" of a business plan that turned her into an icon and seeks to "recover his share of past and future partnership profits."

In a separate case, Shakira is suing de la Rua for misappropriation of funds.

Her legal case, filed in the Bahamas in October, accuses him of paying himself an unauthorized bonus and using funds from their business for personal expenses.

Antonio de la Rua denies the allegations. His legal papers, however, provide a rare insight into the intricacies of sustaining a global pop career such as Shakira's.
