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.
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!
