Felicidades, Shakira! The Colombian pop star put her truthful hips to work yesterday when she gave birth to her first child, son Milian Piqué Mebarak, with boyfriend Gerard Piqué.
Though her stage name is just Shakira, this sexy singer’s real last name is Mebarak. And in Spanish culture, each child gets surnames from both parents — the father’s coming first and the mother’s last.
On Shakira’s personal site, she posted a blog about the birth of her son, giving details and explaining the name choice.
“The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskirt, unification,” she wrote.
What a beautiful name!
The little bundle of joy was born on Jan. 22, 2013 at 9:36 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain (3:36 p.m. ET) and weighs 6 lbs and 6 ounces.
Hopefully we’ll get to see some of this cutie on The Voice Season 4 after it premieres on March 25. What do you think of the name Milan? Weigh in below!
