11:00PM Thursday 29 Jan
Gerard Piqué and Shakira are the proud parents of their newest child, Sasha Piqué, born in Barcelona. The new arrival is the couple's second boy after Milan, who was born on 22 January 2013. The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means “defender of mankind” and “warrior.”
Just like his father, and his brother Milan, the newest addition to the Piqué family will also be a member of FC Barcelona—number 155,629. In fact, just this morning Amador Bernabéu, Sasha's great grandfather and the grandfather of Gerard, formalised Sasha's status as a Club member at the Barcelona Supporter Services Office, where he was accompanied by Members' Area vice-president Jordi Cardoner. Sasha then received the team's home and away uniforms as a gift.
Campaign for children in need
Shakira and Piqué, in collaboration with UNICEF, organised the World Baby Shower campaign, where visitors to the campaign's website can donate to children in need all over the world by sending them special gifts, such as food and vaccines, through UNICEF.
