Shakira's Body: Asking to Reproduce
The 32-year-old “She Wolf” singer spoke to the magazine about femininity, motherhood and the pressures of being a woman.
“You know, women have to make enormous efforts through life, much larger than men,” Shakira shared. “We deal with so many pressures: the pressure of aesthetics, and how society wants us to deliver our performances as mothers, daughters and wives.”
But she’s ready to focus on starting family, Shakira said. “My body feels like it is asking to reproduce, to have a huge belly and carry babies.”
The singer has been in a relationship with investment banker Antonio de la Rua for the past nine years.
