LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIAUNITED STATES (REUTERS) -  Shakira has released the first full picture of her new baby, Milan. The singer posted the photo - which features his father and soccer star Gerard Pique kissing him - on her Twitter account. The couple welcomed the baby on January 22 - delivering the six-pound, six-ounce (three kilograms) boy at a hospital in Barcelona.

The couple had previously released a photo of Milan's feet, shod with specially designed Nike shoes, but the current shot is the first one where Milan's full face is seen.

The photo is available through the couple's UNICEF website, where the charity is accepting donations of 5 to 110 dollars in celebration of the baby's arrival. The couple had previously asked fans to donate gifts such as mosquito nets and vaccines to help needy children in an online baby shower. Shakira is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

The singer first met Pique, who plays for FC Barcelona, in 2010, but only confirmed that they had been in a relationship in March 2011.
