Little Milan’s parent’s are wasting no time getting the sprout ready for the soccer field.

Just days after it was announced that Shakira had given birth to a son, she and her boyfriend/baby daddy, Gerard Piqué, appear to be suiting up their little stud up for gameplay. The father has shared a photo of the baby's feet in sneakers.

On his WhoSay account, Gerard posted the photo of Milan's tiny feet in a pair of Nikes. 

And, for a two-day-old, these are probably the most tricked-out sneakers that they make: all white design, Nike swoosh, Velcro AND laces, and—most importantly—the kid’s name stitched into the strap in blue and red thread.

“Milan’s feet!” the caption reads. 

The move has us thinking that the infant will surely grow up to be a soccer star too. We’re betting he popped out of the womb with quite a foot on him already—probably perfect for center-back position, just like dad.

As we previously reported, the baby arrived on Tuesday when doctor’s induced labor on Shakira. The official word on Milan’s arrival came in the form of an official statement on her website. 

“The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification,” part of the statement explained. “Just like his father, baby Milan became a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”

Like father, like son… This kid’s probably already getting scouted by European football clubs. Or, worse case scenario, he takes after mom and makes a butt-ton of cash selling albums, right?

Needless to say, Milan’s off to a good start.
