5 Reasons Shakira is Going to Be a Kick-Ass Mom

He's finally here! Shakira and Gerard Pique have just welcomed a son into the world, a baby boy named Milan Piqué Mebarak!

 Now that baby Shaki has finally arrived, we thought we'd take a look at 5 reasons Shaki is going to be a kick-ass mom! 

1. Shakira as a Mom 1

She won’t need the “Baby Einstein” videos to train her son! Since she is fluent in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, she will probably mold her son to be a trilingual baby genius. We love the sound of that!

Thanks to her songwriting and guitar playing skills, we are sure Shaki is going to deliver some fresh baby lullabies to her little one. Perhaps she will create a baby version of “Waka Waka”? Yes please.

There’s no doubt that the Colombian pop star will teach her little one to pay it forward. Her passion for philanthropy and expanding education in Latin America has been never-ending. Shakira was honored with the “Person of the Year” award due to her work with the Barefoot Foundation at the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards. Now that’s an award her little one will look up to!

She wants her future son to respect his elders. In an interview with EFE, Shakira confessed that she wants her baby boy to be influenced by father, William Mebarak. “I hope he has the example of his grandfather growing up. He has a lot to share and teach because my dad is always solving the smallest of conflicts and I’m very proud of him,” she said.

She’s a fierce working mom-to-be who has been craving motherhood for years now. In her September 2009 Latina cover story, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer admitted, “Sometimes at night, I think of myself with a big belly. That’s my happy place. I want to have a huge belly—I crave that,” she said.
