Proud new father Gerard Pique used Twitter to post the first photo of his and Shakira's new born son's feet, wearing personalised Nike sneakers. While many celebrities choose to be particularly low-key and secretive about their children, clearly Pique is just a little too excited to keep it all to himself.
When a baby is born there are countless 'firsts'; first step, first word, first tooth. But before any of those firsts come around, there's first photo and first pair of shoes. Normally the latter isn't much of a big deal, but if you're Milan Pique Mebarak, son of Shakira and Gerard Pique, your first shoes are personalised, with your name embroidered on them. And your first public photo is of you wearing them. The pair used Shakira's website the release the news into the world, saying "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 Nike sneakers are fitting, even if they don't really fit. On her website, they added: "Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth." If he's to follow in his father's pretty big footsteps he'll be wearing sneaks of some kind of another for a lot of his life.
He also scored a great goal against Malaga tonight and dedicated it to his young son by sucking him thumb.
