Shakira Reveals Babyweight Loss Has Been The Biggest Challenge Since Giving Birth
Star is almost back to her pre-pregnancy weight
Shakira has revealed that the most stressful thing about becoming a new mother has been shifting the baby weight, with the pop star talking to People about how it’s been since she gave birth to her and Gerard Pique’s son Milan.
“[Losing baby weight] is the only thing that’s been a little stressful,” said the 36 year-old, who had to get back to her duties as judge on The Voice fairly sharpish. She added: “I knew I had to come back here to do The Voice two months after I had delivered a baby. I didn’t have my four months of maternity like every woman on earth has. I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges.”
Continuing, she said, “I think that our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure women of today are after delivering a baby. My dad says there’s nothing better than meat over the bones. So he likes my mom a little chubby. She was never under the pressure to have to get to her old weight — and she never did.” Shakira looks pretty much back to her ‘fighting weight,’ though she still insisted she had a bit more to lose. She also said “I do Zumba. Zumba has been actually really great for me. Even during pregnancy, I kept doing it until almost the end.”
