Diaper duty is not Shakira‘s strong suit. Turns out, tending to son Milan‘s bathroom duties is what has shocked the pop star, 36, most about motherhood.
“I didn’t expect babies to need so many diapers,” Shakira told PEOPLE April 22 during NBCUniversal’s press day at the Langham Huntington hotel in Pasadena, Calif. “Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often.”
Potty talk aside, the new Voice coach says motherhood has its challenges, but she’s managing just fine thus far.
“It takes a lot of energy from you,” Shakira says. “But I love it. I’m really enjoying every bit of it. It’s not as idyllic as everybody tells you — but not as horrible as everybody tells you. It comes with a full package. It comes with lots of joy and also lots of fear.”
