‘He Likes Soccer And Drumming’: Shakira’s Son Inherits Both His Parents’ Talents

Section: Celebrity Mums

Singer Shakira has revealed that her son, Milan, is already showing signs that he takes after both her and her footballer husband

Sure, everyone’s proud of their little one and the skills he or she learns everyday, but you’ve got to hand it to singer Shakira’s son, Milan, 14 months.

Not only is he already kicking a ball around with his dad, FC Barcelona player, Gerard Pique, he’s also shown some skills on the drum kit while in the studio with his mum.

Speaking on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Shakira said, ‘It’s early to tell, but he loves drumming.

‘But he’s also after the soccer ball all day long. He likes kicking the ball.’

But the singer confessed that she leaves the kickabouts with their son to Gerard because she’s “terrible” at football.

Shakira is known for her musical skills, often playing the guitar and drums on her records, as well as singing, but she could have some competition if this video posted by Gerard on his Instagram of Milan playing the drums is anything to go by.
