Shakira Gives Birth
Shakira announced the birth of her and Pique’s second son on her blog Friday, revealing that they’d named him Sasha Piqué Mebarak.
“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,” reads the statement on the Colombian singer’s website. “The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means ‘defender of mankind’ and ‘warrior.'”
“The hospital confirmed that both mother and child are in excellent health,” the post added.
Shakira and Pique are also parents to two-year-old Milan. According to The Voice judge, the couple would love to have more children.
“I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard,” she told Latina magazine last year. “My own fútbol team.”
Though Shakira and Pique have been together since 2011 and now have two children together, plans to marry aren’t in their immediate future, if ever.
“We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby,” she explained to Hello magazine. “I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.”
