Colombian pop star Shakira disclosed how her children — three-month-old Sasha and two-year-old Milan — with FC Barcelona player Gerard Pique (28) have become her priority, unlike the old times when her world revolved around her personal style and music.

“I have to train a little harder to reach my previous weight now. You just have less time. I wear the first thing I see in my closet; your priorities change. Before I became a mum, I was the centre of my own world. Now it’s my children, they always come first,” Shakira was quoted as saying by Belfast Telegraph.
“For a while I could only wear sweatpants because I was that intermediate size where you’re not a small, you’re not a large. But right now I’m back in my jeans. But I got back in my jeans only two weeks ago. Before, it was quite sad, I couldn’t even get in past my knees,” said the ‘Waka Waka’ singer.
Tennis to keep fit?
She also revealed that she played tennis during her pregnancy. “Up until my sixth month of pregnancy, I played tennis. It probably wasn’t the cleverest idea, the weight of the baby was pretty heavy for someone in my circumstances. But I just love playing tennis. I’m not very good at it, but I have a lot of fun. My trainer tells me I played much better when I was carrying a bit more weight on my hips!” said the 38-year-old.
The stunning mom said that her biggest secrets in getting back to her old weight have been a balanced diet and staying away from sweets.
