Shakira gave birth to her first child, a boy, on Tuesday (January 22) in Barcelona. The pop star confirmed the good news to her fans on her website. The singer and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique, named the six-pound, six-ounce (three kilograms) boy Milan. The couple last week asked fans to donate gifts such as mosquito nets and vaccines to help needy children in an online baby shower. Shakira is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Shakira first met Pique in 2010, but only confirmed that they had been in a relationship in March 2011.
