Shakira gave birth to her second son with famous FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué on January 29 in Barcelona. Big brother, Milan, turned 2 on Jan. 22.

The couple announced details about the baby’s name on Instagram on Jan. 30 in both English and Spanish: “The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means ‘defender of mankind’ and ‘warrior.’"

Shak delivered via planned C-section at the same Barcelona hospital where Milan was born in 2013. When Milan was born, a statement on Shakira's website announced his birth and the meaning of his name, "dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification."

This mami has definitely put a lot of thought into her boys' names!

Both Shakira and new baby Sasha are doing well. We can’t wait to see some pictures of the little guy! We bet he’s just as cute as Milan.

Welcome to the world, Sasha Piqué Mebarak!
