Shakira - Shakira stressed about baby weight
Shakira is 'a little stressed' about losing her baby weight because she hasn't got time to work out
Shakira has found losing her baby weight ''a little stressful''.
The 36-year-old Colombian singer, who welcomed her first son Milan into the world in Spain in January with her 26-year-old footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique, feels under pressure to get her defined abs back and says she still has a few more pounds to lose before she is back to her pre-pregnancy weight.
'The Voice' mentor told People.com: ''[Losing baby weight] is the only thing that's been a little stressful.
''I knew I had to come back here (to the U.S.) to do 'The Voice' two months after I had delivered a baby. I didn't have my four months of maternity like every woman on earth has. I'm not trying to complain, but it's been a process full of challenges.
''I think that our mothers and grandmothers weren't under the pressure women of today are after delivering a baby. My dad says there's nothing better than meat over the bones. So he likes my mom a little chubby. She was never under the pressure to have to get to her old weight -- and she never did.
''I'm still a few pounds over.''
The blonde beauty had been doing Zumba to stay fit during her pregnancy but doesn't have time to work out at the moment.
She said: ''I do Zumba. Zumba has been actually really great for me. Even during pregnancy, I kept doing it until almost the end. Now with 'The Voice', I don't have time to exercise. And when I have a day off, I just want to be with Milan.''
Shakira previously revealed that she didn't expect parenthood to be so ''hard'' and though she says he is a ''great baby'', she admits her experiences haven't been ''idyllic''.
