Shakira Talks Son Milan: “Being a Mother Is Deliciously Overwhelming” (VIDEO)
Colombian superstar Shakira gave birth to her first child, a son named Milan, in January 2013. Two months later her debut on The Voice 2013 hit America. During the blind auditions, Shakira was pregnant with the little tyke, but when it came time to tape the battle rounds, he was there by her side.
In a recent interview with The Today Show, Shak talked about the experience and bringing Milan along for the ride.
“Being a mother is deliciously overwhelming,” she admitted to Al Roker. “It’s surreal. It’s a whole new experience to me and I’m discovering it second by second. Having him here, it’s great. He’s accompanying me in a way I don’t feel alone.”
And this isn’t the first child on The Voice set. Christina Aguilera has brought her 4-year-old son, Max, around the other coaches, saying Cee Lo Green would make the best babysitter.
But this time around, it looks like Usher is the one with the paternal instincts.
“He’s a gorgeous little baby too,” the R&B superstar told Shakira.
“Oh, thank you!” she replied.
Maybe Ush will make Milan into the next Justin Bieber! What do you think of Shakira’s work/life balance with a newborn? Weigh in below!
