Shakira On Giving Birth: ‘I looked like a Shar Pei when I first delivered’ [VIDEO]




Oh, the joys of motherhood! The amazing experience that is seeing your newborn for the first time and letting those emotions flow as you cry your eyes out in excitement.. or maybe a little disgust.

That was more or less Shakira's experience after giving birth, as she told Ellen DeGeneres in an exclusive interview: "Delivering a baby is not as idyllic as people make it seem. Don't expect that he is going to be rosy cheeks, cherub when he is born. Actually, when I saw mine, I was like, 'Oh my God. He is purple and wrinkled. What is this?'"

She exposed her fears after giving birth: "I was like, 'Oh my God. Am I ever going to be sexy again? Is my man ever going to feel attracted to me again the way he used to be?'"

The singer also joked about her "looks" after delivering baby Milán back in January, "Looking at your new image in the mirror... I looked like a Shar Pei when I first delivered."

Nonetheless, she seemed very confident that her man, soccer player Gerard Piqué, loves her very much, and she couldn't help to look very much in love with him when she said he's a great father to their baby boy. She added that he's very good looking and "he is something."
