Ooo, big baby news!

Grammy award-winning Latin singer-songwriter Shakira, 35, and her boyfriend, central defender for FC Barcelona, Gerard Piqué, have welcomed their first child — a boy!

The couple's reps announced the news on Shakira's official website, as follows:

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.

The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.


Beautiful!

The statement concluded by giving baby Milan's birth weight — around six pounds, six ounces — and with the hospital's statement that mom and baby are both "in excellent health."

Congrats to the family!

Congrats and to think they hooked up when they met in my country, South Africa, during the world cup and Pique's Spanish team won the world cup that year.
