Shakira's youngest son is already a football star

Like father, like son.

This is certainly the case for Colombia-born singer Shakira’s youngest, six month-old Sasha Piqué Mebarak, born January 29 in Barcelona, Spain.

The singer posted a video of the baby gently kicking a football, while proud father and footballer Gerard Piqué films and shouts encouragement.

“That’s it!”

The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian origin, meaning “warrior”.

Shakira’s first son, Milan is now two years-old.

He looks to also be a football fan after Piqué uploaded a Facebook video of the two playing a football-themed video game earlier this month.

“The best coach I’ve ever had!” Piqué comments underneath the post.

Shakira and Gerard met in 2010 when he appeared in her music video for Waka Waka, the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In March 2011, the singer confirmed their romance on Twitter and over a year later in September 2012 they announced they were expecting their first child together.

Currently, the family resides in Barcelona, where Gerard plays at Camp Nou in Catalonia.
