Shakira and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, welcomed their second child on Jan. 29, and have now released photos of their newborn son, Sasha. Needless to say, he's totally adorable.

Shakira shared the photo on UNICEF's World Baby Shower website.


The couple took to Facebook to announce Sasha's arrival on Jan. 30, writing, "We are happy to announce the birth of Sasha Piqué Mebarak… born January 29 at 9:54pm, in Barcelona. The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means "defender of mankind" and "warrior."

This is the second child for Shakira and Pique, who began dating in March 2011, and welcomed their first son, Milan, in January 2013.

Shakira previously released pregnancy photos through the UNICEF charity's website. The singer has long been a supporter of the organization, which encouraged fans, friends and family to buy "inspired gifts," which consist of life-saving items for babies, that are donated to new families living in extreme poverty across the globe.

Shakira announced she was pregnant in August, and told Spain's Europa Press that she is planning on going back to work on a new album once she gives birth.
