New parents Shakira and Gerard Piqué pose for a family photo with their 4-month-old son Milan on Father’s Day. “Feliz día del padre!! Te amamos! Tu familia,” the proud mama captioned the above shot via Instagram.
The first-time mom, 36, recently opened up about the joys of breastfeeding.
“Breastfeeding has been one of the best experiences of my life,” she told Us Weekly. “I love it! I can’t stop!” Laughing, she added, “I think I’m going to breastfeed him until he goes to college! I’m hooked!”
The Colombian popstar also credits breastfeeding for helping her drop the baby weight. “I think that it helps a lot,” she said, noting that she hasn’t reached her goal weight yet. “I haven’t weighed myself … I think I’m close but I can’t sing victory yet!”
But for now, The Voice mentor is embracing every moment with her baby boy.
“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,” she shared. “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.”
And she’s also been hard at work on her next album.
“I’ve recorded some stuff, but I’m halfway there,” Shakira said. “I don’t know exactly what I’ve got because I make so many songs and some of them might make it and some of them won’t. I’m just searching and writing about pretty much anything that comes to my mind and just letting myself be, without putting too much limits.”
Will there be a song written for her sweet son? “I did write a song for him the day I was going to deliver him,” she explains, “But it’s just for us!”
