World-famous singer-songwriter and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Shakira and FC Barcelona star Gerard Piqué are inviting friends and fans today to join their online baby shower, on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, in support of the world's most vulnerable babies. At the baby shower, inspired gifts cost as little as $5, which can buy a mosquito net to ensure a sleeping child stays safe from malaria, one of the leading causes of child death worldwide. For $10 guests can buy polio vaccines to protect 17 children from contracting this incurable viral infection, while $37 purchases a baby-weighing scale to monitor growth in the first critical years of life.

    Colombian singer Shakira welcomed a baby boy Tuesday, the pop star's first child with Spanish soccer boyfriend Gerard Piqué. The singer revealed her son's name, Milan Piqué Mebarak, several hours later on her website. "The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification," the announcement reads. Born in Barcelona, Milan reportedly weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces. "Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth." Shakira is one of the newest mentors on the NBC's popular show The Voice.
