Second baby boy for Shakira and Gerard Pique

Pop star Shakira and footballer Gerard Pique are celebrating the birth of their second child together.

The Colombian singer, seen here in a pair of knee socks , reportedly gave birth to a boy late on Thursday at the Teknon clinic in Barcelona.

Both mother and baby are doing well in hospital. The couple, who met while she was filming a video for her song Waka Waka for the South Africa World Cup in 2010, have decided to call their new arrival Sacha.

Shakira, 37, and Pique, 27, had their first child, Milan, two years ago.

The weight of the baby is not yet known, while the Spanish media claim the birth was by caesarean section.

Photographers captured the arrival of the celebrity couple on Thursday, having waited outside the hospital for days in anticipation of their arrival. The news of the latest addition to their family has been celebrated by fans.

Pique played for Barcelona on Wednesday in their 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid in the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey. It sealed an impressive 4-2 aggregate victory for the Catalans.
