Los Angeles - Shakira worried she wouldn't be sexy after giving birth.

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.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said: "Looking at your new image in the mirror ... I looked like a Shar Pei [dog] when I first delivered.

"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."

As well as her own body, the Colombian beauty - who recently replaced Christina Aguilera as one of the coaches on The Voice USA - was surprised by the initial appearance of her baby son and was shocked by just how traumatic labour is. 

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?'
