Shakira compares baby photo of Gerard Piqué to newborn son Sasha

Shakira's new baby is less than two months old, but the singer is already finding similarities between her son Sasha and his daddy Gerard Piqué. Sharing a photo on Instagram of her little tot and Gerard as a baby, Shakira noted just how identical the two are.

The Waka Waka hit maker posted the sweet snap on Thursday, and while it could have been fitting for #ThrowbackThursday, Shakira was actually celebrating Father's Day in Spain.

"Padre e hijo. Feliz día del padre! Shak," the Colombian beauty wrote in Spanish, which is literally translated as "Father and son. Happy Father's Day! Shak".

Shakira drew comparisons between a baby Gerard Piqué and her newborn son Sasha

Images of a baby Gerard and a newborn Sasha were put side-by-side and showed the duo striking almost identical poses – with Sasha raising his hands to his head and the tot sporting the same messy hair as his dad.

The phrase "De tal palo tal astilla" was also written across the photo collage, which is a common phrase in Colombia that means a child behaves like their father.

Fans almost had to do a double take and noted the similarity, with one commenting in Spanish that Sasha was a mini Piqué, while the couple's older son Milan was a mini Shakira.

Shakira and Gerard Piqué welcomed their second son Sasha in January

The singer and the football star, who have been together for four years, welcomed their second child on 29 January in Barcelona – the city in which they are based due to Gerard's commitment to the FC Barcelona team.

A few days after the birth Shakira posted a photo of her baby's foot, showing the hospital band still wrapped around Sasha's ankle. "I have Daddy's feet, it looks like I've been playing football my whole life," she captioned it.

Shakira later revealed on her website that "the name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior'."

The Whenever, Wherever singer and her partner welcomed their first son Milan two years ago on 22 January 2013, also in Barcelona.
