Barcelona defender Gerard Pique and superstar singer Shakira welcomed their second child into the world on Thursday night.
Shakira gave birth to a baby boy without complications in a scheduled caesarean section at the Hospital Quiron Tecknon in Barcelona.
Pique, 27, and the Colombian pop-star, 37, announced the news in a statement shortly before midnight.
A name for the new-born, who arrives just over two years after the couple’s first child, Milan, is yet to be revealed.
Around 24 hours before the birth, Pique had played the full 90 minutes in Wednesday night’s 3-2 Copa del Rey victory over Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.
As with their first child, Pique and Shakira will continue family tradition and make the baby an associate member of FC Barcelona.
The celebrity couple have been together since 2010. They announced their second pregnancy as well as the baby’s sex back in August 2014.
