Until now, the world had only seen a photo of Shakira‘s newborn’s precious tiny feet. It appears after two weeks, baby Milan is ready for his close-up. “The Voice” judge posted the photo of little Milan getting a tender kiss from his father, soccer star Gerard Piqu�.
The move to publicize the little bundle of joy is part of an online, interactive baby shower for Shakira to benefit UNICEF. Instead of buying gifts for the happy couple, Shakira wants fans to purchase items that will help save babies in need worldwide.
Gift choices range from $5 to $110, and include therapeutic food, polio vaccines, and mosquito nets. Baby shower guests may also win prizes like a CD or DVD signed by Shakira, or an FC Barcelona shirt signed by Gerard.
This is a really thoughtful idea, and a refreshing break from celebrities who choose to sell their first photos to the highest bidder. Go Shakira!
