The singer, boyfriend and F.C. Barcelona player Gerard Pique, and the child left the clinic in the early afternoon in an SUV with tinted windows driven by one of Shakira's brothers.
The singer did not stop to take questions from reporters, heading straight for Pique's residence in Cabrils, a town some 25 km from Barcelona, where the couple will be living until construction is completed on their new house in Ciudad Condal.
No photos of the baby's face have been released, with the only image made public being a photograph posted by Pique on Twitter of the child's legs.
Milan Pique Mebarak weighed almost 3 kg at his birth by Caesarean section last Tuesday.
