"We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Pique Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Pique, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain," the couple announced on Shakira's 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 FC Barcelona at birth."

Milan was born weighing six pounds and six ounces and is in "excellent health" -- as is Shakira as well.

The 35-year-old singer -- who will replace Christina Aguilera as a coach on the fourth season of The Voice -- had confirmed she was pregnant in September.

"As some of you may know, Gerard and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby!" Shakira revealed on her website at the time.

Shakira and Pique, a 25-year-old professional soccer player who plays for Spain's FC Barcelona team, began dating in early 2011.

NBC announced Shakira and Usher will replace Aguilera and fellow The Voice coach Cee Lo Green as coaches on the reality singing competition's upcoming edition in September. Remaining The Voice coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will both return for the fourth season.
