Shakira thanked her fans in a special video

Shakira has been in the spotlight recently thanks to her official video for her new World Cup 2014 song.

But while the Colombian songstress took centre stage singing the football competition”s new anthem La La La (Brazil 2014), it was her 18-month-old son Milan who stole the show in the video.

Encouraged by his mum, the youngster is seen showing off his footballing skills by running up to a ball and kicking it towards an elephant.

Making the video for the new World Cup song was particularly significant for Shakira as she met her partner Gerard Piqué while producing the film for her 2010 offering Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).
