Shakira had her second baby with boyfriend Gerard Pique and named the baby boy, Sasha. The 37-year-old singer gave birth through cesarean section on January 29 10pm local time in BARCELONA, Spain. Proud grandfather, Amador Bernabéu, told reporters that the newborn looked just like his father, Gerard.
If Shakira’s first son, Milan, is any indication, Sasha is going to be an adorable and fashionable baby. On Shakira’s website she said "the name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior’.”
On Thursday afternoon the couple slipped quietly into the Teknon Clinic hospital through a side door, passed reporters who were camped out since Tuesday for the celebrated occasion.
The couple has asked supporters and fans to donate to UNICEF as a baby shower gift, like they did for baby Milan back in 2013. With the money donated two years ago over 80,000 children were vaccinated against polio because of the efforts.
Before the birth, Shakira said, "Now that we are soon welcoming our second child we want to help other children around the world and also contribute to a long-lasting solution for getting children living in extreme poverty the supplies they need to survive.” Sasha Piqué Mebarak is the latest baby to join the ranks of fashionable celebrity children, following Christina Aguilera’s newborn daughter, Summer. Celebrity children are changing the game, and we can’t wait to see what Sasha will bring to the table.
