Shakira wants to breastfeed her son "until he goes to college"
The 36-year-old singer and her footballer boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed their first child, Milan, four months ago and Shakira is loving every aspect of motherhood including nursing.
She told Us Weekly: "Breastfeeding has been one of the best experiences of my life. I love it! I can`t stop! I think I`m going to breastfeed him until he goes to college! I`m hooked!"
Shakira also credits breastfeeding with helping her to get back in shape quickly following Milan`s birth.
The `Voice` coach said: "I think that it helps a lot. I haven`t weighed myself - I think I`m close but I can`t sing victory yet!"
The `Hips Don`t Lie` singer is surprised by how laid back she is with her son, because she imagined she would be controlling.
She explained: "I thought I was going to be super-controlling because I am like that with my songs, my career and everything I do professionally - I like to be in charge. But with him, I`m so relaxed. It`s so surprising because everybody thought I was going to be one of those hysterical mothers, like smothering mothers, and I feel that I-m not as nervous. I`m relaxed."
