Shakira Hooked On Breastfeeding? Singer Jokes Baby Milan Will Be Breastfed Until College

Since giving birth to son Milan in January, Shakira has found breastfeeding to be a definite perk of motherhood. The 36-year-old Colombian singer and coach on NBC's "The Voice" recently revealed to Us Weekly that she's "hooked" on the way it allows her to bond with her baby and has found it to be "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!" she told the magazine.

And in addition to being a source of special moments with her four-month-old boy, the first-time mother said breastfeeding has helped her shed the baby weight. While the star looked stunning in April -- just three months after the delivery -- she did express some dissatisfaction with her post-baby body in early May, saying she looks "decent" and has "a long way to go."

Perhaps in an attempt to make more time for baby Milan and for her weight loss regimen, Shakira recently announced she'll be clearing much of her schedule by dropping "The Voice" mentorship gig. The famed singer joined the competition show as a mentor for Season 4, but has no plans to return for Season 5 which will premiere this fall.
