It seems like Shakira’s notoriously truth-telling hips have been working overtime since she gave birth to baby Milan in January 2013. The Colombian superstar, who has said she had more rolls than a Shar Pei after giving birth, looks smokin’ hot on the cover of Elle Magazine’s July 2013 issue.

And the cover’s nothing compared to Shak’s sexy spread inside the magazine. The Voice coach may have just lost her final contestant, Sasha Allen, but she’s also dropped the baby weight and toned up over the last five months.

According to E! News, Shakira shed her weight by taking zumba classes. There have also been reports that co-coach Adam Levine got Shakira interested in yoga. Dropping weight and getting sweaty near Adam Levine? Count us in!

As far as motherhood goes, Shakira could not be happier, but she does admit that it can be a challenge.

“I’m still trying to figure it out,” she tells the magazine. “And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life. Some people put it like it’s very idyllic, some people put it like it’s a torturing experience, but it’s not quite one thing or the other. It’s like life – it comes with everything.”
