Forget her busy schedule as an international sensation. Shakira is taking the time to be a mother to her son in this adorable new video.

Motherhood has helped Shakira discover herself

Though her son, Milan, is just 19 months old, Shakira took to Facebook to show off his impressive reading skills. This lesson was in Spanish and little Milan got all the words right, including mama, papa, agua, nana and more!

Shakira wrote the words on a pad of paper with a red marker and asked little Milan in Spanish, "How do you say this, my love?" And he proudly answered her while sitting on her lap and looking between the camera and the notepad.

Shakira is not done having kids — she wants eight or nine more

Shakira's enthusiasm in the video is contagious. She's clearly very proud of her little man, as she should be.


It is no secret that Shakira loves being a mother. Though Milan is her first child with longtime soccer player boyfriend, Gerard Piqué, Shakira told the April 2014 issue of Latina, "I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own fútbol team.

"If it weren't because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already," the singer continued.

Well, it looks like she's since made time for another baby in between her projects. The "Hips Don't Lie" singer confirmed her pregnancy to the Spanish version of Cosmopolitan, following months of speculation.

"Well yes, the truth is that I am pregnant," she told to the magazine. Rumor is the new little bundle of joy will be another boy for the happy couple, which means they are well on their way to building their dream team.

Shakira and Piqué met four years ago when the soccer player appeared in the music video for Shakira's song, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)."
