Shakira, after her baby, only needed six months to snap back into the fantastic shape she is known for. The pop star flaunted her body in a barely-there black ruffle bikini while on vacation with her partner Gerard Pique and son Milan in Hawaii.
Just don’t think the new mom found her weight loss to be easy. Just like any other woman post-pregnancy, she found it hard to trim the extra pounds she gained while her son was growing inside of her.
“I guess our mothers and grandmothers weren’t under the pressure that women of today are after delivering a baby,” she told Us Weekly back in April. “It’s different, I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do ‘The Voice’ two months after I delivered a baby.”
Shakira credited her great shape after giving birth to Zumba, and she considered her weight loss just one more hurdle to jump over in her career. “I didn’t have my four months maternity like every woman on earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life,” she said.
