Shakira, Gerard Pique Welcome Baby Boy!


Shakira had her baby Milan

Congrats to Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique — because we assume they wouldn’t trick us twice on this. “We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain,” reads a note on Shakira’s website, adding that mother and baby are in excellent health. While we immediately thought back to all the other celebrity babies named after famous places (hello, Brooklyn and Tennessee), the new parents have a different explanation for Milan: “The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”

Thankfully, they follow that bit up with a more lighthearted statement about the new arrival: “Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.” We just wonder what the players for AC Milan think of this? (Oof, our sports jokes never work!)
