Shakira has revealed a glimpse of her newborn baby son Sasha Piqué Mebarak, who was born just days ago on Thursday 29 January. The Colombian pop princess posted a photograph of her six-day-old's tiny left foot on Instagram – fitting for the son of a famous footballer.
She wrote alongside the snap, which shows Sasha's tiny little pink toes and the white hospital band still wrapped around his ankle: "I have Daddy's feet, it looks like I've been playing football my whole life", in English and in her mother tongue, Spanish.
