Shakira Shows Off Her Post-Baby Abs

Looking at Shakira‘s rock-hard abs, it’s hard to believe that the singer delivered her first child earlier this year.

But the new mom, who’s featured on the cover of the September issue of Self, tells the magazine that she didn’t snap back into shape immediately after her son, Milan, was born in January.

“After the delivery, you look like a shar-pei!” the 36-year-old admits.

Shakira says she avoided packing on too many pregnancy pounds by training four to five mornings a week. “I did Zumba throughout my pregnancy,” she reveals, and even worked out privately with its creator, Beto Perez.

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer got camera-ready to appear on The Voice when Milan was just two months old by training hard and eating right.

“Two minutes of ab work isn’t enough,” she insists, and says that she ate eight small meals a day (200-250 calories each), with lots of fiber to fill her up and protein, calcium, iron and fish oil to build muscle.

And while the Colombian star’s “quite proud” of her rear, she embraces her not-so-perfect areas as well.

“I don’t obsess over my flaws, because I see my body as a whole,” she explains. “Besides, I think men appreciate confidence more than perfection.”

Is baby Milan a future mix-master in the making?

Celebrating their first Father’s Day as a family, Shakira posed with her main men – boyfriend Gerard Piqu and the couple’s 4-month-old brown-eyed boy – in a photo posted on Sunday to her Facebook page.

“Happy Father’s Day!! We love you! Your family,” The Voice coach captioned the sweet snapshot.

While baby boy is following in his musical mama’s footsteps – he donned a boombox tee for his visit to The Voice set – he’s already a big fan of downtime with his soccer star daddy.

“Thank God [Milan’s] father has been really involved,” Shakira, 36, told PEOPLE. “He’s been amazing. The baby spends as much time with me as he does with his dad. He’s the kind of dad who is full hands-on. He changes diapers; he enjoys bathing him. That’s a real help for me.”
