Colombian-born singer and former coach of “The Voice”, Shakira Mebarak has given birth to her second son who she and her footballer husband have named Sasha Pique Mebarak, she confirmed 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,” stated her website.

Shakira also explained in her blog about the meaning behind the name of their new born son. The name Sasha means “defender of mankind” and “warrior” in Greek and Russian.

The 37-year-old blonde beauty had first revealed her pregnancy with Gerard Pique back in August last year.

This ambitious lady told Latina magazine saying that she would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard. “My own football team,” she added.

Well, looks like she has 2 little ones confirmed for her ‘team’ so far, as Sasha joins his big brother, Milan in the family fold.

Shakira could not help but to praise about her soccer-stud boyfriend’s parenting style. She said he is so involved with his son whenever she or the son needs him. “He is always there for him, and that’s a big advantage for me as I cannot imagine it any other way.”

However, despite their close relationship and their second son’s arrival, no wedding is planned between the two lovers.

“When you have a baby, when you feel his love, you feel so at peace with the world,” she shared.
