Shakira gave birth earlier this week to a healthy baby boy. The first for she and her longtime boyfriend, FC Barcelona soccer player Gerard Pique. Much like the fashion demands it, famous soccer players sons are given fancy, unusual names. Think David Beckham’s son, Brooklyn. Shakira and Pique’s newborn boy was named Milan.
Yes, like in Italy’s Milan. Fancy. I know. But you don’t know the half of it! Milan’s first picture (or something like it) was tweeted by the proud dad when he announced the happy event. And lo and behold, it’s not a picture of his wee cute face. Nor a snap of his teeny tiny hands and miniature fingers, oh no!
Shakira & Pique’s baby boy, Milan’s first picture involves a pair of white Nike sneakers! With his name embroidered on! (wait, I have a déjà-vu: remember David Beckham’s pink soccer shoes? Yes, the ones embroidered with the name of his four kids when his daughter, Harper Seven was born? So is the soccer fashion, then!)
