Shakira Really Did Have Her Baby This Time

Late last month, Shakira‘s boyfriend punked the internet by announcing she’d had her baby. Then he took it all back and said it was a joke because it was the Latin American equivalent of April Fool’s Day and HAHAHAHA yeah totally hilarious, dude.

Anyway, looks like Shakira really did pop this time. Unless there’s yet another version of April Fool’s Day we don’t know about.

“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain,” the singer wrote on her website. “The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”

“Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of [the soccer team] FC Barcelona at birth,” the statement went on. “The hospital confirmed that the couple’s first child weighed approximately 6lbs, 6 ounces, and that both mother and child are in excellent health.”

About a week ago, Shakira and Gerard held an online baby shower to raise money for charity. And apparently not a moment too soon.

Congrats to the happy couple — and to baby Milan for hitting the genetic jackpot.
