Pop starlet Shakira loves being a mom and feels such a close bond to her baby boy when she breastfeeds him that she’s joked she’ll be doing it forever.
‘The Voice’ coach gave birth to son Milan in January of this year – her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique – and loves nursing her little man.
“Breastfeeding has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love it! I can’t stop!,” she shared with Us Weekly.
“I think I’m going to breastfeed him until he goes to college!,” she joked. “I’m hooked!”
As well as being a bonding experience, Shakira also believes breastfeeding is helping her get in shape again.
“I think that it helps a lot,” she went on to tell the magazine. “I haven’t weighed myself… I think I’m close but I can’t sing victory yet!”
The blonde beauty is also surprised she’s so laid back and relaxed when it comes to raising Milan – especially as she thought she’d be an over-protective and controlling parent before he was born.
“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.”
Earlier this month Shakira announced her departure from ‘The Voice’, revealing that she wants more time off to spend with her baby.
