Latin singer Shakira has finally given birth to a baby boy.
Although reports surfaced she had given birth in late December the birth was later reported as false. Now, it has officially been confirmed that not only did the singer give birth, she and boyfriend Gerard Piqué have decided to name their little bundle of joy Milan. Going against tradition, the parents chose to make his father’s last name the baby boy’s middle name instead and gave him his mother’s last name.
On the singer’s official website, the new parents shared their excitement with this official statement…
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.
We’ve been tricked! On Friday we reported Latin singer Shakiradelivered her first child with soccer player Gerard Pique. It was a false report.
The announcement, made via Twitter by Gerard, was a prank gone wrong. He initially tweeted in Spanish, “Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!” which means, “Since our son was born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!” However one day later Piqua followed up with, “Ya tiene nombre! Se llama Inocencio! Feliz Día de los Inocentes a todos!” Which means, “It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy April Fool’s Day to all!”, when translated in English.
Shakira has welcomed a baby boy with her boyfriend, and soccer champion Gerard Pique. Their son was born on Thursday and his proud Papa even tweeted in Spanish, “Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!” which means, “Since our son was born! We are very happy! Thank you all for your messages!”
We told you it was coming, Usher and Shakira will replace Cee-Lo and Christina Aguilera as co-host of ‘The Voice’ next season. Although Cee-Lo will return the following season Aguilera reveales recently that she will not. Check out the new promo featuring new hosts Usher and Shakira.
Back in September Shakira made the announcement
she and boyfriend Gerard were expecting . Now the couple have released a photo of the very pregnant Latin singer. Here’s a photo the singer tweeted to her Twitter followers.
Wow, what a big belly! Seems like she may be due any day now don’t you think?
The singer posted this below message on her official website making the announcement,
As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby! At this time we have decided to give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities planned over the next few days.
This means I will not be able to be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but I’m sure this weekend in Las Vegas will be spectacular and I will be closely following everything that happens there!
I’d like to thank Clear Channel and my fans for their constant love and understanding.
And will see you very soon!
