This week, the Colombian singer posted a smiling photo of herself with her the toddler–her son with longtime partner Gerard Piqué–while assuring fans he’s feeling better, although she did not disclose the exact nature of Sasha’s illness.

She and Piqué also have another son, Milan Piqué Mebarak, who is 3.

“Thanks for all the messages you sent for Sasha while he was sick,” she wrote. “Everything is under control now, and he’s back to his cheerful self!”

The uplifting post came after she backed out of two scheduled performances for Thursday’s Latin GRAMMYs and Sunday’s American Music Awards, without revealing why.
