Shakira Talks Breastfeeding: "I’m hooked!"
It’s been a wonderful adventure for Shakira as she settles into motherhood, and she especially loves breastfeeding her son Milan (4 months).
The “Beautiful Liar” songstress explained, "Breastfeeding has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love it! I can’t stop!”
Shakira also joked that little Milan will be turning 18 before she stops feeding him- “I think I’m going to breastfeed him until he goes to college! I’m hooked!"
As an added bonus, the Columbian cutie credits the practice with accelerating her post-pregnancy weight loss. "I think that it helps a lot. I haven't weighed myself … I think I'm close but I can't sing victory yet!"
Meanwhile, Shakira has surprised herself a bit when it comes to parenting style. "I thought I was going to be super-controlling because I am like that with my songs, my career and everything I do professionally -- I like to be in charge. But with him, I’m so relaxed. It’s so surprising because everybody thought I was going to be one of those hysterical mothers, like smothering mothers, and I feel that I’m not as nervous. I’m relaxed."
