Shakira On Motherhood: “I’m Still Trying To Figure It Out”

Shakira 06122013 1

New mom Shakira gets gorgeous on the July cover of ELLE and opens up about soccer star beau Gerard Piqué and their 4-month-old son Milan.

On her experience as a new mother: “I’m still trying to figure it out.  And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life.  Some people put it like it’s very idyllic, some people put it like it’s a torturing experience, but it’s not quite one thing or the other.  It’s like life – it comes with everything.”

On meeting Gerard and having a restored faith in God: “I think, if you can prove the existence of God, it can only be proven through love. I even had lost my faith for a while. I was becoming as agnostic. And it was really hard, because I was always very religious, and for a few years, maybe because—it sounds so corny—I was not feeling the love like it was supposed to be, I started to think that there was no God. And suddenly I meet Gerard and the sun comes out.”

On her relationship with Gerard: “He has his own world and that’s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he’s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love that unites us.  There’s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood –does that word exist in English?”
