Shakira and Gerard Pique Share First Picture of Son Milan

Meet Milan Pique Mebarak! New parents Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Pique are sharing the first picture of their 2-week-old son with fans via their UNICEF website. The charity is accepting donations of $5-$110 in celebration of Milan's birth.

"We hope that, in his name, other less privileged children in the world can have their basic needs covered through gifts and donations," the stars say in a statement. "Thank you for sharing this unforgettable moment with us."

Pique, 26, shared the first glimpse of their baby boy via WhoSay on Jan. 23. The image didn't feature a full-length picture of their newborn, but it did show Milan wearing customized Nike sneakers.

This is the first child for Shakira and Pique, who welcomed Milan in Barcelona, Spain, on Jan. 22. The couple chose the name Milan because it "means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification," they explained in a statement.

The Voice mentor, 35, and her Spanish soccer star beau have been dating since March 2011; Shakira announced her pregnancy via Facebook in September 2012. Shortly before Milan's birth, the pair threw a virtual baby shower via their UNICEF site; the gifts went to charity.

Before meeting Pique, Colombian-born Shakira dated Antonio de la Rua for more than a decade.

actually, I'm pretty good with the crying bit; I'm good at soothing crying babies. but poop is the grossest thing ever.

If it helps, breastfeeding babies can go days, sometimes almost two weeks, without pooping. Mine goes days without pooping, it's nice.

Well, when they do poop, they do it well ;). But it's not really smelly until they start on solids. And now you know about baby poop :P.

I just know I'm going to be dry-heaving thru every diaper change when I have kids. I gag at the smell of mac'n'cheese for fuck sake!

It's not so bad when it's your own kid. I'm a preschool teacher, I change diapers for a living, and other kids' poop bothers me, but my own kid's diapers are fine. Now vomit, anyone's, I can't handle.
