Pop star Shakira and soccer player Gerard Pique’s newborn son, Milan, might only be three days old, but his proud parents are already showing him off – or at least his awesome sneakers.
Pique, who plays for FC Barcelona, posted this adorable photo of his son’s feet, which were adorned with Nike sneakers that had his name engraved on them:

The couple, who has been dating since March 2011, welcomed their son on Tuesday, Jan. 22 in Barcelona, Spain. The baby weighed in at 6 lbs., 6 oz.
In a press release, Shakira said they chose the name Milan because it means “dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unificiation.”
She also added that, “Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”
The singer recently announced that she would be joining singing competition show The Voice as a coach along with Usher, replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.
