Shakira is a super busy lady these days, what with the combined responsibility of judging and mentoring on one of television’s hottest reality competitions — and that’s not even including all the work The Voice judge puts in as a new mother! It’s a grueling job, but Shakira says she loves motherhood more with each days that passes.
With a few of the initial challenges of motherhood behind her, Shakira is finally settling in to the joys and stresses of being a working mom. During a recent interview with Extra, the singer confessed that, at times, the process has left her feeling drained of energy. But overall, the experience has been more than worthwhile for the new mother. “Being a mother is surreal. It’s a whole new experience to me, and I’m just discovering it second by second.”
One perk Shakira has realized that she really enjoys is having a constant companion. This likely will change as the singer realizes just how hot a commodity privacy really is for a working mother. But for now, she says that her baby is constantly accompanying her “so I don’t feel alone.”
The only think about being a new mom that Shakira could do without? The baby weight! The celeb slimmed down at a rapid pace after she gave birth but still claims to be a few pounds over her target weight. We think she already looks amazing as is, but given all the pressure certain media outlets attach to weight loss and pregnancy, it’s understandable that Shakira might still be a a bit worried. For now, though, Shakira appears happy and healthy….and we hope she stays that way!
