Shakira has also shared a photo of her new baby boy’s tiny foot, suggesting he’s going to follow in his daddy’s footballing footsteps, with the caption on Instagram reading: “I have Daddy’s feet, it looks like I’ve been playing football my whole life” - just like his older brother Milan.
Shakira confirmed the wonderful news of Sasha’s birth on her website, with the statement:
“We are happy to announce the birth of Sasha Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 29 at 9:54pm, in Barcelona.
“The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means ‘defender of mankind’ and ‘warrior’.”
Their baby boy was welcomed by a planned C-section.
Only last week Shakira and Gerard were supporting their ‘World Baby Shower’ in aid of UNICEF.
