It's another boy for Shakira and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué! The singer gave birth yesterday night to baby Sasha via C-section in Barcelona. The happy couple, who also have a 2-year-old son named Milan, shared a baby birth announcement on Shakira's website (and then posted the news to Twitter and Facebook).
We are happy to announce the birth of Sasha Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 29 at 9:54pm, in Barcelona.
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.
Shakira first confirmed her pregnancy back in August to the Spanish version of Cosmopolitan, but it was her parents who accidentally revealed the baby's gender in September.
And even though the singer has given birth, you can still join the World Baby Shower that she's hosting with UNICEF. The virtual shower is charity-based, where anyone can buy a gift to save a baby's life (like a measles vaccine or family water kit) or host a shower of their own.
Speaking to People last year, after her latest album was released, Shakira shared, "...I've entered one of the happiest phases of my life. It was definitely a time of change, of rebirth, of self-discovery ... and of course, becoming a mother, which turned my world on its head in the best of ways."
Congratulations to the second-time parents! And see which other celebs have given birth in 2015!
