The "Hips Don't Lie" crooner and her boyfriend Gerard Piqué welcomed their second child Thursday, with Shakira announcing the news on her website.
"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 birth announcement read. "The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means "defender of mankind" and "warrior."
Shakira and her son are both said to be in "excellent health." News of Sasha's birth comes just a couple of days after it was reported that the 37-year-old Colombian singer had been admitted to a Barcelona hospital to give birth to her son via Cesarean section.
The UK's Express reported that the songstress reserved an entire floor of the Quiron Teknon Hospital hospital to make sure Shakira has privacy and to give the couple's parents neighboring rooms.
The superstar singer first announced news of her pregnancy in August, telling fans after weeks of speculation, "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you for all your well wishes."
The couple is also parents to their 2-year-old son Milan. Congrats!
