Shakira became a mom for the second time last week, and now she's sharing pictures of her new bundle of joy! On Thursday, UNICEF posted a portrait of baby Sasha on its website as part of the World Baby Shower campaign to raise money for pediatric health care. The sweet snap shows Shakira and Gerard Piqué's little guy looking off in the distance and sporting almost a full head of hair. The day before, Shakira gave fans a preview with a snap of the fella's tiny feet.

Shakira and Gerard announced the baby's birth last Thursday. "We are happy to announce the birth of Sasha Piqué Mebarak, son of Shakira Mebarak and Gerard Piqué, born January 29 at 9:54pm, in Barcelona," the couple said in a statement on her website. "The name Sasha is of Greek and Russian descent and means 'defender of mankind' and 'warrior.'"
It's been a little over two years since Shakira gave birth to the couple's first child, son Milan Piqué Mebarak, who now has a little brother to dote on. News about Shakira's second pregnancy first emerged last August. "Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!" she tweeted at the time. The international superstar went on to show off her growing baby bump in an adorable Instagram snap with Gerard.
