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.
