Shakira Mebarak announced on her website she has given birth to her first child, a son, in Barcelona, Spain.
He is the first child for the Colombian-born recording artist and her longtime beau, Gerard Pique.
"The name Milan means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification," a message on Shakira's website said.
"Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth. ... Both mother and child are in excellent health."
The 35-year-old recording artist confirmed she was dating the 25-year-old central defender for FC Barcelona in March 2011.
