The news that Shakira had given birth yesterday only broke in the past few hours, and we have been kept guessing over the name she chose for her new little bundle of joy.


Well, we no longer have to wait, because the singer took to her website this afternoon to share the wonderful news herself, and to reveal her new son’s beautiful name.


The Hips Don’t Lie singer, who is already mum to two-year-old son Milan, wrote: “We are happy to announce the birth of Sasha Pique Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born on January 29 at 9:45pm, in Barcelona.”


Going on to explain the origins of little Sasha’s name, she continued: “The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means ‘defender of mankind’ and ‘warrior’.”



A relative of Gerard's also told reporters: “They’ve told me he looks like Gerard. Milan looked like Shakira when he was born but this one looks more like his father.”


What amazing news, and what a gorgeous name. Congratulations, once again, to the happy family.
