What do you get from the cross between a hot international singer and a Fifa World XI team player? In this case, an interesting name and two very famous last names. 

Milan Pique Mebarak was born to father Gerard Pique and mother Shakira Mebarak on Tuesday, January 22nd at 9:20 PM in Barcelona.

A statement on the singer's official website announced the birth of the child, and explained the interesting choice of name by saying that "the name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification."

Of course, the couple was quick to announce at least one certainty in this young one's life: "Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth."

The news is the latest in something of a 'baby boom' at Camp Nou: Lionel Messi's son Thiago was born at the end of 2012, while David Villa, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro are all to become fathers this year.
