Colombian singer Shakira is in excellent health following the birth of her first child with Gerard Pique. Congratulations to the happy couple who welcomed baby Milan Pique Mebarak on Tuesday in Barcelona!
She posted a statement on her official website saying, “We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Pique Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Pique, born January 22nd at 9:36pm in Barcelona, Spain. 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 has confirmed that little Milan weighed 6lbs. 6 ounces and both Shakira and he are doing well. When she was admitted for a scheduled birth, she took to her official Twitter account to ask her fans for their prayers. She tweeted, “I’d like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak.”
Congratulations to them on the birth of their first child. We are glad to hear that everyone is happy and healthy.
