The Hips Don't Lie singer welcomed her first child, son Milan, with soccer star Gerard Pique in January, and she admits she had anxieties she would lose her erotic appeal due to the after-effects of pregnancy.

"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?" 


She then quipped: "'He's so good looking. He better be attracted to me because he is something."

Shakira, 36, joked: "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?'
