Soccer star Gerard Piqué must already be dreaming of a family legacy on the field.

Piqué, the FC Barcelona defender, posted a photo Thursday holding his sweetly grinning – and growing – son, Milan Piqué Mebarak, 7 months, with the Spanish Super Cup trophy at the team’s Camp Nou football stadium.

Milan, born to Piqué, 26, and partner Shakira, 36, in January, has already adapted his father’s sporting style. Just two days after his birth, the happy family posted a photo of his tiny feet, clad in white Nike sneakers, noting the baby was “a member of FC Barcelona at birth.”

Later, in March, Shakira, a former coach on The Voice, showed off photos of the growing tot in his own team gear. The supportive mom also took Milan to watch dad train for a match in Miami, toting a tiny soccer ball just in case the little one wants to start early preparing for the family sport.
