Currently, Shakira is the one who continues to raise the children despite the messy breakup.

The hidden meaning behind their children!

The couple welcomed their first child into the world in 2013. They decided to name their first-ever child ‘Milan’. The Colombian singer once revealed the meaning behind the name. As per Hola, Milan basically means ‘dear, loving, and gracious’ in Slavic. Soccer fans have always been more well-versed with Milan. The simple reason is that the pop icon has brought him to watch quite a few soccer games.

About two years later, the celebrity couple welcomed their second son into the world. They named him Sasha. In their statement, they confirmed the meaning of the name too. Sasha basically means ‘warrior’ and ‘defender of humanity’. Sasha is two years younger than Milan. While they were together, Shakira and Pique never really exposed Sasha to their fanbases as much as they did with their first child.
