MADRID — Colombian pop singer Shakira says she has given birth to a boy, her second child with partner, Spanish football star Gerard Pique.

In a statement on her official Twitter account Friday, Shakira, 37, said Sasha Pique Mebarak was born Thursday at 9.54 p.m. in Barcelona.

The note said the name Sasha was of Greek and Russian descent and meant "defender of mankind" and "warrior."

The statement said mother and baby were in excellent health.

The couple's first child, Milan, a boy, was born in January 2013 in Barcelona.


Shakira and 27-year-old Pique have been a couple for the past four years.


Pro wrestler Mick Foley booted for cheating at Wing Bowl

PHILADELPHIA — Professional wrestling star Mick Foley has been ejected from Philadelphia's Wing Bowl eating contest after stuffing uneaten chicken wings into a fanny pack in an attempt to increase his total.

People following Friday's event on social media dubbed Foley's antics "inflate gate," a play on the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots' deflated football controversy.

Chicago's Patrick Bertoletti won with a Wing Bowl record 444 wings in 26 minutes. He edged 2014 champion Molly Schuyler, of Nebraska, who eclipsed her record 363-wing mark with 440 wings.

Wing Bowl started in 1993 as a way for Philadelphia's long-suffering sports fans to blow off steam before the Super Bowl.

About 20,000 people gathered at the Wells Fargo Center to drink beer and watch scantily clad women serve competitors wings.



Amy Poehler feted by Harvard's Hasty Pudding

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Amy Poehler turned the tables on her roasters, poking fun at Harvard and its famed Hasty Pudding theater troupe during its annual Woman of the Year award Thursday.

The actress joked at the irreverent affair that she never expected to be feted by the Ivy League school she raised a "middle finger" to growing up in nearby Burlington, Mass.

"I want to thank Hasty Pudding for reminding us how hard it is to write funny jokes," she said after two student roasters teased her about past roles in comedies such as "Baby Mama" and "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo."

The "Parks and Recreation" star and "Saturday Night Live" alum also poked fun at the university's elitist reputation and pointed out the lack of female actors in her performance with the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

"It's unsettling that there will be no women on stage tonight," Poehler said to applause. "You know it's time for a change when the Augusta National Golf Club has lapped you."

She then quickly quipped: "I haven't seen so many smiling white faces since I took my top off at a mime convention."


Chris Pratt, Poehler's co-star on "Parks & Recreation" who starred in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" film, is Hasty Pudding's 2015 Man of the Year. He gets his own parade and roast Feb. 6.

The annual award goes to performers who have made a lasting contribution to entertainment. Last year's winners were Helen Mirren and Neil Patrick Harris.
