Shakira has her own little drummer boy.
The Colombian superstar’s 1-year-old son, Milan, seems ready to follow his mother’s musical footsteps with his drumming skills. On Tuesday, Gerard Piqué uploaded a video of Milan sitting on Shak’s lap and rhythmically striking the instrument in the studio.
In the short clip, “The Voice” coach can be heard telling someone “I think he’s going to be a drummer” as Milan alternates between striking the drum and the other drumstick.
If his musical aptitude in the studio wasn’t enough, Shakira recently revealed that her son might have also inherited her dancing ability.
“His dad talks to him in catalán and I talk to him in Spanish and I have him dance merengue, salsa, bachata,” Shakira told Univision’s “El Gordo Y La Flaca” recently. “He has moves like my “La Tortura” moves and he can “waka waka” since he was 10 months old. He also kicks around the [soccer] ball very well, but with his left [foot].”
Milan’s musical inclinations should come as no surprise considering how much time he spends with his mom in the studio. While recording her upcoming self-titled album, the toddler sat with the Colombian star listening to a track and unexpectedly spoke into the microphone after the last verse.
“There is a song called 23,” the singer told Latina magazine in early March. “Yeah it’s very special. It talks about how my life was when I met Gerard when he was 23 and then at the end of the record you hear little Milan.”
