Shakira and her husband have kept Shakira's pregnancy fairly public and in various headlines for the past nine months, but now the big wait is over and they have welcomed a baby boy the world. This time around it's actually true, and not a joke via twitter. 

In a statement on Shakira's website, the name of the baby, the reason for the name and the weight and health of the child were revealed: "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," Shakira wrote on her website. "The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification... Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth...The hospital confirmed that the couple's first child weighed approximately 6lbs. 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health." 

Just like Pique's joke, Shakira used Twitter to call for support from her fans, saying "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life." Those prayers seem to have worked and now we just can't wait to see the littl'un. With such good genes he's bound to be beautiful
