Shakira: Delivering a Baby Is Not Idyllic as People Make It Seem

Shakira: Delivering a Baby Is Not Idyllic as People Make It Seem

Shakira is all smiles while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday (May 9) in Burbank, Calif.

That same day, the 36-year-old entertainer made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote The Voice and talk about giving birth to her baby boy Milan.

“Well, you know delivering a baby is not as idyllic as people make it seem. Don’t expect that he is going to be rosy cheeks, cherub when he is born,” Shakira told Ellen. “Actually when I saw mine, I was like, ‘oh my god. He is purple and wrinkled. What is this?’ So at first it’s hard to deal with a lot of the things that you have to deal with. 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, you know. All of these things that you deal with and the fears that come to you.”

She’s so beautiful, charming, and has a great personality. She looks like a person you would totally have fun with.

# 2

she wasn’t even big when she was pregnant =/

I like that she’s talking about her baby blues. A lot of women go through rough feelings but don’t like to talk about it.

I thought she had a C-section?!
I have to say looking at her baby on twitter, it’s definitely not the most beautiful face yet… But if you don’t look as child so good, you look extra beautiful as grown up, that’s a fact!!!!

I have nothing against this woman, but man these Hollywood types are so self-absorbed – let it go for once and enjoy the new life you created. It must really stink to have to worry about your looks 24 hours a day. It’s sad that these women can’t even enjoy being a new mom for awhile.

@Cece: Yep – my thoughts exactly

WOW! Dyed blond hair and about a thousand plastic surgeries when she looked like Yasser Arafat.

south american women are the most self-centered looks-obsessed women on the planet, and do most plastic surgery, look it up if this is news to you

@piggiface: After the c-section it is even harder to do anything with your body…It’s a surgery after all, you are not allowed to work out until those 6 weeks pass, and sometimes even after these 6 weeks you may be asked to wait for longer, because you’re not healing properly. Happens to all the moms, even those from Hollywood…
I like the fact that she’s actually opened about it…lots of stars just pretend that giving birth doesn’t hurt, postpartum is awesome, their children never cry and they are back in the shape within hours after the birth…
