New Mum Shakira Says She Hasn’t Got Time To Exercise

Singer Shakira claims looking after a baby and her career means she hasn’t got the time to exercise. Hands up if you agree?

She’s been criticised in the past for being too skinny, but now Shakira, 36, mum to Milan, turning one this month, is happy with her body, according to an interview with US Glamour magazine.

The singer revealed she hasn’t got time to exercise what with a baby and a singing career to juggle.

‘I already have a lot to worry about,’ she said, talking about her upcoming album and Milan. ‘ This month I am not exercising because I have an album to finish and I have a baby.’

She went on to to say that her partner Gerard Piqué prefers her with curves. ‘My man Gerard, prefers meat over bone. He doesn’t like too skinny. That takes the pressure off.’ 

Can you relate with Shakira? We’ve all been there – you barely have enough time to run a brush through your hair, plunging into lunge sets is improbable. Or, do you think you should squeeze in a little exercise because the sooner you start, the easier it is to get fit later on? It could be an idea to take these fitness shortcuts
