Shakira and footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique had a baby in January of this year, and he’s adorable! Ah, the miracle of birth, etc. Motherhood is great and all, but during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via DS), Shakira made the most ludicrous claim I’ve heard in a while. Now, this might be hard for you to take in, but… she looked like a Shar Pei after giving birth and was terrified that she’d never be sexy again. Because when you’ve just pushed a child out of your vagina, the most important thing is making sure men still want to put their dicks in it!
Anyhoo, we won’t go down that road. Of course, all women worry about how they look and your body having undergone such extreme changes would probably make anyone self-conscious. But also, HELLO, Shakira! You’re one of the most beautiful women in the world (not my type particularly, but I’m not blind) and just because you’ve got that not-so-fresh feeling after going through hours of hard labour does not make that any less true. Plus, hey look! That little wrinkly, wiggly, screaming thing in your arms? That’s your baby! Hurray for the miracle of biology!
The singer, who recently took over Christina Aguilera’s coaching role on NBC’s The Voice, spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about her post-pregnancy figure.
She said: “Looking at your new image in the mirror, I looked like a Shar Pei when I first delivered.
“I was like, ‘Oh my God. Am I ever going to be sexy again? Is my man ever going to feel attracted to me again the way he used to be?’”
Shakira recently spoke about her baby weight battle, saying: “I look decent. I still have a long way to go. I still have a few pounds over to lose.”
