ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A smiling new father, Barcelona's soccer star Gerard Pique, said on Wednesday (January 23) he was "nervous" when his pop star girlfriend, Colombian singer Shakira, gave birth to their first child.
The football player was in the delivery room, when their baby boy, Milan Piqué Mebarak, was born on Tuesday evening at 21:36 CET (January 22).
Shakira's parents and her sister, who was also present at the birth, later arrived at the hospital, too.
Shakira, 35, announced her pregnancy in September after bowing out of a performance in Las Vegas.
Last week the couple asked fans to donate gifts such as mosquito nets and vaccines to help needy children in an online baby shower. Shakira is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
