Congratulations are in order for Shakira and her boyfriend, soccer player Gerard Piqué . According to People en Espanol , the couple has welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Milan .
Tuesday morning, before the birth, Shakira tweeted , "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak." Spanish media reports had suggested that the singer had scheduled a Caesarean section, so she knew that Tuesday would be her delivery date.
Shakira and Piqué had recently launched a virtual “baby shower” that encourages visitors to donate money that will go towards providing food, vaccines or other necessities to babies in need around the world.
