How could Shakira worry about losing her sexiness? The singer, who feared what her post-pregnancy body might be, definitely got her sexy back. Agreed? Shakira flaunted a healthy, fit figure while vacationing in Hawaii just six months after giving birth to her first child!
For some crazy reason, Shakira was worried that she would never be able to get her body back after having baby Milan Piqué Mebarak in January. But the famously fit “Hips Don’t Lie” singer has kept active since giving birth, and on a recent trip in Hawaii, she proved she has nothing to fear — her healthy figure is perfectly sexy!
Shakira’s Post-Baby Worries: ‘Am I Ever Going To Be Sexy Again?’
Shakira, 36, and beau Gerard Piqué, 26, welcomed their first son, Milan, on January 2, and while the couple was extremely excited to have a baby together, Shakira dealt with some worries that came with her pregnancy. On Ellen DeGeneres‘ show, Shakira revealed:
I was like ‘Oh My God, am I ever going to be sexy again? Is my man ever going to be attracted to me again the way he used to be?’ All these feelings that you deal with, all these fears that come to you. You wonder if you’re ever going to be your old self again or get your body back.
Although her fears were understandable, she went about losing her baby weight in a healthy way, regularly exercising during and after her pregnancy.
“I do Zumba,” she told Us Weekly. “Zumba has been actually really great for me. Even during pregnancy, I kept doing it until almost the end.”
As for her fears that Gerard might not be as attracted to her as he was before her pregnancy, Shakira clearly had nothing to worry about. The couple recently enjoyed a getaway in Hawaii where they looked more in love than ever — and Shakira flaunted her fit body in two different skimpy bikinis! We’re so glad that she’s getting her confidence back — many a lady would kill for her body!
While on vacation, Shakira and Gerard stayed active with swimming and a canoe ride, not only proving that Shakira is healthily maintaining her fit post-baby physique, but also that the two can’t get enough of each other!
Shakira: ‘I Just Want To Be With Milan’
Although she seems to be perfectly happy now, her post-baby body wasn’t the only thing that put stress on Shakira after her pregnancy. Because she gave birth just two months before The Voice began filming, she felt the stress of getting fit while also spending time with her new baby. She told Us Weekly:
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. 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.
Once The Voice started filming, her “challenges” became more burdensome as she had to balance filming, exercise and, most importantly, spending time with her baby. ”With The Voice, I don’t have time to exercise,” she told Us Weekly while the show was still on air. “And when I have a day off, I just want to be with Milan.”
Fortunately for Shakira, The Voice finished in June, so now she has plenty of time to spend with Milan and Gerard and maintaining her healthy figure.
We think Shakira’s healthy post-baby body is totally sexy and she has done a great job at gradually losing her baby weight the healthy — and her bikini choices prove that she feels the same!
