Shakira’s busy life is paying off! ‘The Voice’ coach stepped out in Los Angeles in a sheer top, showing off her super-slim belly only three months after having her first baby!

Shakira gave birth to baby Milan Piqué Mebarak on Jan. 22 — but on April 22, exactly three months later, you’d never have guessed she ever was pregnant!

Boyfriend Gerard Pique is a lucky guy! Shakira, 36, attended the NBC Summer Press Day at Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, Calif., where she rocked a leopard-print sheer top.

With natural makeup and flowy hair, The Voice coach looked stunning! She paired the top with black skinny jeans and black booties, and the top was just sheer enough so that her super-flat stomach was revealed!

She admitted at the event that losing baby weight wasn’t a big concern for prior generations.

“My dad says that there’s nothing better than a little meat on the bone!” Shakira told Us Weekly. “He likes my mom a little chubby. So she was never under the pressure to get back to her old weight, and she never did, actually!”

Sadly, Shakira’s not exactly in the same position.

“I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful, because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do The Voice two months after I delivered a baby,” she said. “I didn’t have my four months [of] maternity [leave] like every woman on Earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life.”

“Zumba has been pretty great for me even during pregnancy,” she told the mag. “I did it almost until the end!”

Whoa! Shakira also claimed she’s still “a few pounds over” what she’d like to be, but we don’t see those few pounds anywhere!

Shakira On Motherhood: ‘Nobody Told Me It Would Be This Hard’

The Columbian singer-songwriter revealed said that while Milan is a great baby, raising him is definitely harder than she expected:

I didn’t expect babies to need so many diapers! Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often! I mean he’s a great, great baby. He’s an easy one, I think. But nobody told me it would be this hard. It takes a lot of energy from you. But I love it, I’m really enjoying every bit of it. It’s just that it’s not as idyllic as everybody tells you, but also not as horrible as everyone tells you.

However, she also admitted she’s very lucky to have Gerard, 26, to help out:

Thank God the father is very involved. He has been amazing. The baby spends as much time with me as he does with his dad. He’s the kind of dad who’s full hands on. I can’t imagine doing all of this and not having the father do his part of the job. So that’s a huge help to me.

He’s a lucky man for sure! HollywoodLifers, don’t you think Shakira’s post-body baby is amazing?
