Overheard: Shakira talks motherhood

Three months after giving birth to her first child with boyfriend Gerard Pique, Shakira says she’s still trying to figure out the whole baby thing.

“I didn't expect babies to need so many diapers,” the 35-year-old Colombian singer recently told Us Weekly. “Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often!” she joked.

“I mean, he's a great, great baby,” “The Voice” judge said of her son, Milan. “He's an easy one, I think. But nobody told me it would be this hard. It takes a lot of energy from you, but I love it. I'm really enjoying every bit of it. It's just that it's not as idyllic as everybody tells you, but also not as horrible as everyone tells you.”

    Diapers are made of cloth or synthetic disposable materials. Cloth diapers are composed of layers of fabric such as cotton, hemp, bamboo or microfiber and can be washed and reused multiple times. Disposable diapers contain absorbent chemicals and are thrown away after use. Plastic pants can be worn over diapers to avoid leaks, but with modern cloth diapers, this is no longer necessary.*;

    Me thinks Ms. Shakira doesn't tend to her baby as a normal mother, she has help, maids etc.. I'm betting she changes maybe 2-3 diapers a day while the rest are changed by the hired help... Stories like this are meaningless to the common folk of the world... We actually laugh when we see or hear these types of stories....

      As goes for every working mother. I am sure the babysitters & Daycare personnel changed way more diapers than I did while I was a work and my children required diaper changes when they were babies. I worked 8 hour days pules 2 hours communte so I was away from my babies 10 hours/day and that was on a regular day because if I had to stay late to meet work deadlines then I was sometimes away from my children about 12 hours if not longer.

    May be Shakira needs to check with her mother on how many diapers she needed or how much washing her mother had to do while she was baby. Anyways, I would that her hip shaking moves need more energy than changign the diapers and playing with the baby.

    Some of that blondeness must be natural. Yes, it's hard. Try it without as much money as you have and actually being married to the father of the baby and not having any nannies.

    “I didn't expect babies to need so many diapers,”

    It's a good thing she is hot, or she would have nothing going for her.

    Dumb as a stump. But I'd bang her anyway.

    She cleans up nice. Especially since she dumped all the Muslim garb.
