Shakira Baby Photo: Will He Follow In Dad’s Footsteps?By: Amanda Crum - January 24, 2013
Shakira, who just gave birth to her son Milan this week, revealed a photo of the baby…sort of.
The pic shows Milan’s feet, clad in supercool kicks that have his name embroidered on them. Of course, he won’t have much use for shoes for a while, but fancy footwear runs in the family; his dad, Gerard Pique, is a soccer star in Spain.
The Columbian hip-shaker posted an announcement on Twitter and on her website after Milan was born, explaining the origin of his name and confirming that he was born healthy and happy.
“The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification…Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth. The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6 pounds, 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.”
Shakira wasn’t shy about taking to the stage while she was with child; last October, she showed off her belly to the crowd at a performance in Baku, Azerbaijan and let them know she was staying in good shape during the pregnancy.
