Shakira and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique welcomed their son Milan yesterday, January 22 at 9.36pm.
“Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”
According the website baby Milan weighed approximately 6lb 6oz, and both mother and child are in “excellent health”.
To show gratitude for their new bundle of joy, the couple set up a baby shower site where people can support Unicef “in giving underprivileged babies around the globe a healthy start in life”.
Readers can pay for immunisations, rehydration salts and food for babies in developing countries.
The Grammy-winning singer said in a 2009 interview that she was ready to start a family.
She said: “I really would like to have a big belly.”
