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.”
