Shakira is a mom again!
The Colombian-born singer and longtime boyfriend Gerard Piqué welcomed their second son into the world on Thursday. The little boy’s adorable name was explained by Shakira on her website, where she also announced the birth.
"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."
"The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior'," revealed the site.
Baby Sasha joins big brother Milan, who turned two on January 22. The "Hips Don’t Lie" singer and Piqué, a professional soccer player, may still have plans to expand their family more after settling in with two young boys.
Shakira told Latina Magazine, "I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard. My own fútbol team."
Just two weeks ago, the couple hosted a "World Baby Shower" with Unicef.
And besides helping others, Shakira shared that her partner is truly a hands-on dad.
"He is very involved with his son," the former coach on The Voice told Hello!. "He is always there for him, and that’s a big advantage for me as I cannot imagine it any other way."
Shakira will now be busier than ever with two kids and a house full of men, but is marriage on the horizon? Maybe not... but the couple is in it for the long haul, according to Shakira.
"We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. 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."
