Meet baby Milan! Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard shared the first photo of their adorable baby boy — and instead of cashing in on the debut pic, they asked fans to donate to Unicef! How sweet!

In Hollywood, exclusive first photos of babies can mean a multimillion-dollar payout. But for Shakira and her boyfriend Gerard Pique, the first pic of two-week-old baby Milan was shared for free on WhoSay — and the Hips Don’t Lie singer asked for donations to Unicef instead.

Shakira shared the adorable pic of baby Milan in a blue striped onesie, with proud dad Gerard gently kissing his baby boy’s cheek. Unicef is accepting donations in baby Milan’s name.

“We hope that, in his name, other less privileged children in the world can have their basic needs covered through gifts and donations,” the couple said. “Thank you for sharing this unforgettable moment with us.”

Shakira Gives Birth To Baby Boy Milan Pique Mebarak

“We are happy to announce the birth of Milan Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born Jan. 22 at 9:36 p.m., in Barcelona, Spain,” the couple announced on their website.

“The name Milan (prononced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification. Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”

Shakira is a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, and one of their global representatives, so it was so great of her to suggest donations instead of profiting off of the pics!

What do YOU think of the first pic of baby Milan HollyMoms? Isn’t he the cutest?
