Milan Piqué Mebarak

Milan Piqué Mebarak, the son of Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira and FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué, lives with his famous family in Barcelona, and the little man appears to fit right in. In a city that thrives on music and football, Milan has got the right credentials, thanks to his talented parents.

Born on January 22, 2013, the 7-month-old is all smiles, whether he is accompanying his mother into the studio, or watching his World Cup-winning father trounce the other team on the Camp Nou football stadium.

Like father, like son

Milan has his mother’s big, brown eyes, but it remains to be seen if he has Shakira’s flair for languages – he is too young to start speaking! Colombian-born mum Shakira, who has described herself as a “mut” with her Lebanese, Italian and Spanish heritage, speaks Spanish, English, Portuguese, Italian, French, Catalan and Arabic. This potpourri of influences can be heard in the Grammy Award-winning star’s music.

When it comes to his father, Milan has certainly inherited papa Gerard’s love of FC Barcelona. Not long after he was born, mum Shakira said in a statement that “just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”

Any lingering doubts about the little one’s loyalties have been quickly put to rest. At less than one-month-old, Milan attended one of his father’s matches, resting against his mum in a red baby carrier that featured Gerard’s jersey number 3. Less than two months later, Milan appeared at another match, this time sporting a full FC Barcelona football kit.

Quality family time

Gerard and Shakira are proud and doting parents of Milan, and the couple often show him off on Twitter. In one photo, a smiling Milan is tickled by dad in the park. In another photo, Milan lounges in an airplane seat as the family prepares to jet off on a summer holiday. In yet another, Shakira holds Milan in her arms in the French countryside, far away from cheering fans that accompany mum and dad’s day jobs.

But don’t think that little Milan is spoiled! Mum Shakira recently posted a surprising photo of her baby’s homemade toys, which included crumpled balls of cellophane and aluminium, a puff made of yarn, and plastic bottles filled with buttons and beans. The toys help Milan discover new textures and sounds, mum wrote.

With the summer holidays coming to a close, perhaps we will spot Milan with his homemade toys out and about once more in Barcelona!
