Shakira and soccer star Gerard Pique have welcomed their second son, Sasha Piqué Mubarek.
The singer gave birth via scheduled C-section in Barcelona on Thursday evening.
The 37-year-old singer confirmed the happy news in a statement, revealing their son’s name.
Shakira posted on her website, “The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means ‘defender of mankind’ and ‘warrior’.
The entire floor of the Hospital Quirón Teknon was reserved in Barcelona, Spain for the birth. Baby Sasha was delivered by the same doctor that delivered their first son, two-year-old Milan.
The hospital confirmed that both mother and child are in excellent health.
The Hips Don’t Lie singer started dating the soccer star in 2010.
She previously discussed the joys of being a mom, saying, “motherhood is everything to me.”
Shakira also praised Gerard’s hands-on parenting style.
She said, “He is very involved with his son. He is always there for him, and that’s a big advantage for me as I cannot imagine it any other way.”
The charitable couple expanded their original World Baby Shower initiative to aid Unicef after they came up with the concept after the birth of their son Milan in 2013.
