Shakira Gives Birth — Find Out the Baby's Name!

Shakira became a mom for the second time on Thursday, the singer has confirmed. "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 couple said in a statement on her website. "The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior.'"

It's been a little over two years since Shakira gave birth to the couple's first child, son Milan Piqué Mebarak, who now has a little brother to dote on. News about Shakira's second pregnancy first emerged last August. "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!" she tweeted at the time. The international superstar went on to show off her growing baby bump in an adorable Instagram snap with Gerard. To celebrate her big news, check out Shakira's incredible transformation over the years. Congratulations, Shakira and Gerard!
