It's Another Boy for Shakira! The Singer Gives Birth to Sasha Piqué Mebarak
Shakira is officially a mother of two! The singer and her partner Gerard Piqué welcomed their second child, a son named Sasha Piqué Mebarak, on Thursday, Jan. 29, in Barcelona.
"The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior,' the couple said on Shakira's website. The hospital confirmed that both she and the new arrival are in "excellent health," according to the statement.
Shakira revealed last August that she and Piqué, a professional soccer player from Spain, were expecting another baby. The couple met at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and have been together ever since; their first son Milan Piqué Mebarak was born in January 2013. Congratulations to the growing family!
