Shakira is a mom again.
The singer announced the news this morning on her Facebook account and her website, saying that she gave birth to Sasha Piqué Mebarak at 10 PM in Barcelona.
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.” The hospital confirmed that both mother and child are in excellent health.
The birth of Sasha Pique Mebarak is great news for Shakira and Gerard, but it’s also good news for UNICEF. Shakira, who is a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, held an online baby shower asking fans to buy gifts for children in need.
Our second son is arriving soon and we would like you to celebrate with us by taking part in our World Baby Shower. This is more than a shower, it’s a global movement to save lives. You can be part of it by buying an inspired gift from UNICEF. Inspired gifts are real life-saving items that are delivered to vulnerable children around the world.
Shakira hasn’t shared any photos of Sasha yet but here’s a snap of the family before baby # 2.
Your generosity made the last shower a huge success! Let’s see if we can help even more kids in need this year! Shak pic.twitter.com/kshAWXSMGE
