Shakira is hooked on breastfeeding

2013-05-31 21:31

Los Angeles - Shakira wants to breastfeed her son "until he goes to college".

The 36-year-old singer and her footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed their first child, Milan, four months ago and Shakira is loving every aspect of motherhood including nursing.

She told Us Weekly: "Breastfeeding has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love it! I can't stop! I think I'm going to breastfeed him until he goes to college! I'm hooked!"

'I like to be in charge'

Shakira also credits breastfeeding with helping her to get back in shape quickly following Milan's birth.

TheVoice coach said: "I think that it helps a lot. I haven't weighed myself ... I think I'm close but I can't sing victory yet!"

The Hips Don't Lie singer is surprised by how laid back she is with her son, because she imagined she would be controlling.

She explained: "I thought I was going to be super-controlling because I am like that with my songs, my career and everything I do professionally - I like to be in charge. But with him, I'm so relaxed.

"It's so surprising because everybody thought I was going to be one of those hysterical mothers, like smothering mothers, and I feel that I'm not as nervous. I'm relaxed.”
