Shakira shared the first baby photo featuring her son Milan. The official debut of the baby boy took place on a social network site when his father, Gerard Pique, posted a picture of his little feet on his Twitter account.
Milan was born on Tuesday night via caesarean in a hospital in Barcelona. Only 24 hours old, the baby boy is already showcasing some serious footwear, no doubt courtesy of his famous football playing dad.
The Twitter photo revealed the legs and feet of the baby wearing stylish white sneakers showing his name. In a press release, the proud parents explained their newborn’s name, saying that “the name Milan means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification.”
Before entering the delivery room Shakira, named fondly by her fans Shak, asked everyone to pray for her and her baby’s wellbeing in the crucial moment of their lives.
This is however not the first time little Milan felt the flash of the camera. As a bump he was part of a photo shoot his parents took in support of a UNICEF children charity fund raising. The couple posed for an intimate pregnancy portrait. The two adopted a similar attitude when it came to their then-not-yet-born baby shower. They asked their fans that, instead of sending their baby presents, they should opt for one of the UNICEF websites listed on their social network sites and purchase an item for a suffering baby in the developing world.
The presents varied in prices and purpose. Starting from $5, the gift choices included mosquito nets and polio vaccines. As a sign of appreciation, the couple offered the fans who contributed to the charity the opportunity to view additional pictures from the photo shoot and receive a personal thank you note from Shakira and Gerard.
