Shakira should get ready to sing some lullabies.

The songstress and hubby Gerard Piqué have welcomed a son named Milan, confirmed a rep for the "Voice" mentor. The baby boy - the first child for the 35-year-old "Hips Don't Lie" singer and the 25-year-old FC Barcelona soccer stud - was born Tuesday at 9:36 p.m. in Barcelona. He weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces.

"Both mother and child are in excellent health," said the rep.
Milan's name means "dear, loving and gracious" in Slavic; "eager and laborious" in Ancient Roman; and "unification" in Sanskrit.

"Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of [soccer team] FC Barcelona at birth," the rep said.
