Shakira: Fashion’s not my priority

Shakira's style has taken a step back since welcoming her two children.

The Colombian singer made a name for herself with her catchy pop tracks and also raises sons Milan, two, and three-month-old Sasha with her partner Gerard Piqué.

While she still looks amazing on the red carpet, the 38-year-old insists her personal style has taken a backseat since she became a mother.

"I have to train a little harder to reach my previous weight now," she admitted to

"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 might have to work out a little more these days, but she still sports a very trim figure. Even at the height of her pregnancy, the gorgeous star kept on top of her fitness regime.

"Up until my sixth month of pregnancy, I played tennis," she revealed. "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!"

Shakira started eating a balanced diet after the birth and tries to stay away from sweet treats. While she hasn't reached her goal weight yet, she thinks she'll get there within the next couple of months.
