Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed son Milan in Barcelona today, the singer confirmed on her website.

"We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Pique Mebarak, born January 22nd at 9:36pm, in Barcelona, Spain. The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn) means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification," she wrote.

The Voice mentor also posted the good news to her Twitter account, writing, "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life. Shak."

This is the first child for the couple.
