“Shakira! Shakira!” It’s a boy!
Shakira and her beau, Gerard Piqué, welcomed a beautiful baby boy on Tuesday night. After exciting pregnancy updates and stunning maternity pictures with her (equally sexy) man, their bundle of joy is finally here. The “Whenever, Wherever” singer and her man named their new son Milan. Hmm… What exactly does Milan stand for?
A statement from Shakira’s website shared the meaning:
“The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”
Watch out Mom and dad– you’re son will definitely be a heart breaker!
Earlier in the day, Shakira took to social media to let her fans know, both in English and Spanish, that she was on her way to the hospital and wished for happy thoughts.
I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak—

According to People, Shakira and Piqué announced their pregnancy back in September and held a baby shower earlier this month. What was super cool about this duo’s baby shower is that all proceeds benefited UNICEF.
Make sure to follow Shakira on social media for all the updates on her motherhood adventure– you know I will!
What to watch out for next: a picture of their new little muffin.
