Shakira and Boyfriend Gerard Pique Welcome Son Milan

Columbian singer Shakira, 35, and her boyfriend Gerard Pique, 25, announced on January 22, 2013 that they joyfully welcomed their son, Milan, into the world! The baby boy was born at 936 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain and was instantly a member of the FC Barcelona team just as his soccer playing dad. He weighed in at the perfect little armful of 6 pounds and 6 ounces. Both mom and baby are "in excellent health."

The baby's name which instantly conjures an Italian city translates to "dear, loving, and gracious" in Slavic, "eager and laborious" in Ancient Roman, and in Sanskrit means "unification." And though just hours old, Milan has already proven up to his namesake. In fact, he was a part of a UNICEF benefit while in utero (since his mom is a Goodwill Ambassador) and proceeds from his baby shower supported the charity.

Perhaps now the little man is here, Shakira and Pique will make their family official with a wedding? The pair have been dating for two years since the March 2011 declaration made official via Shakira's Twitter and Facebook with a photo of the pair and caption which read "I present to you my sunshine."
