It's official: Shakira and boyfriend Gerard Piqué welcomed a baby boy named Milan on Tuesday, E! reports.

The news follows tweets sent by the singer earlier Tuesday, asking fans for support as she prepared to give birth: "I'd like to ask you all to accompany me in your prayers on this very important day of my life," she wrote. 

The "Whenever, Wherever" singer has kept us up-to-date on all of her adorable pregnancy happenings, from her first baby bump pic to a nearly-naked shot of her and her beau when she was late into her third trimester (which, no worries, was for charity). She looked completely over-the-moon in the video asking fans for donations for the couple's virtual baby shower, so we can't wait until she publicly gushes about her new little guy. Cute overload!

Congrats, Shakira! And congrats to you and Gerard on giving that kid the best possible DNA ever.
