The Voice star Shakira was photographed with her 4-month-old son Milan at Bel Bambini in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday (May 25). The Colombian popstar toted her tot while leaving the high end baby boutique.
“I didn’t expect babies to need so many diapers! Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often!” Shakira recently joked to Us.
She added: “I mean he’s a great, 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. But I love it, I’m really enjoying every bit of it. It’s just that it’s not as idyllic as everybody tells you, but also not as horrible as everyone tells you.”
Shakira, who welcomed baby Milan with boyfriend Gerard Piqué in January, also talked about her post-baby body.
“I mean, I guess our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure that women of today are after delivering a baby,” she said. “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!”
“But it’s different, I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do The Voice two months after I delivered a baby,” she added. “I didn’t have my four months maternity like every woman on earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life.”
