Shakira’s Baby Weight And Mommy Stress Are Her Current Focus

Shakira’s baby weight and the stress of being a new mommy are her biggest focuses at the moment.

The Voice judge gave birth to her son Milan in January and she sat down with US Weekly to discuss the challenges that have faced her since giving birth.

The pop superstar joked of her short time as a mommy, “I didn’t expect babies to need so many diapers! Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often!”

Shakira then added:

“I mean he’s a great baby. He’s an easy one, I think. But nobody told me it would be this hard. It takes a lot of energy from you.”

The Hips Don’t Lie singer also said she really loves being a mom. She admits it is not as “idyllic” as she was told but “not as horrible as everyone tells you.”

Talking about the fathering skills of her 26-year-old boyfriend and Spanish footballer Gerard Pique Shakira revealed:

“He has been amazing. The baby spends as much time with his dad as he does with me. He’s the kind of dad who’s full hands-on. He changes diapers, he bathes him, he enjoys playing with the baby, he enjoys feeding him, all of that stuff. So that’s great help for me, you know. I can’t imagine doing all of this and not having the father do his part of the job. So that’s a huge help to me.”

Shakira admits that part of her stress involved joining the judges on The Voice just two months after she gave birth.

During an NBC Summer Press Day event on Monday Shakira spoke about her baby weight and the pressures mom’s feel these days:

“I mean, I guess our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure that women of today are after delivering a baby. My dad says that there’s nothing better than a little meat on the bone! He likes my mom a little chubby. So she was never under the pressure to get back to her old weight, and she never did, actually!”

The happy new mom has been celebrating her little bundle of joy, recently tweeting a pic with her son sitting in her chair on the set of The Voice.

If you’ve been watching The Voice you are probably thinking the same thing as me, if Shakira’s baby weight exists I don’t see it!
