Congrats are in order for Shakira and her longtime partner Gerard Piqué. The two welcomed their second child yesterday (Jan. 29).

Hello! reports that the ‘Empire’ singer gave birth via caesarean section at 10PM local time in Barcelona. According to the site, Piqué’s grandfather, Amador Bernabéu, confirmed the news to reporters, revealing the baby’s name — and that he looks just like his soccer player dad!

“He’s called Sasha, which is Alexander in Russian,” Bernabéu said (via Hello!). “They’ve told me he looks like Gerard. [Their first son] Milan looked like Shakira when he was born but this one looks more like his father.”

Shakira and Gerard already have a son together, two-year-old Milan. In March 2014, the singer opened up about wanting to have more children, telling Latina magazine, “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own futbol team.”

She also shared the impact that being a mother has had on her life, saying, “When you have a baby, when you feel his love, you feel so at peace with the world. You just want to share the good news and share how happy you feel.”

PopCrush sends our congrats to Shakira, Gerard and Milan during this happy time!
