Becoming a mother is a different experience for every woman, and Shakira is no exception. Speaking to Cosmopolitan in October 2021, the Colombian native got real about the fears she feels for her children, as well as her approach to parenting. “There can be many truths, like two sides of a coin. I often try to apply that to the upbringing of my kids. I’m a tiger mom and a helicopter mom and all these different moms,” she said, going on to add that she “dreams” about her kids. “I worry about them constantly. I torture my husband.”
Becoming a mom may result in a priority shift — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, and Shakira is open about how she’s enjoying the ride. In 2015, she spoke of her dedication to her kids’ education with Made For Mums. “I like to teach them, I have a little teacher inside of me. I enjoy reading to my kids, and they like learning, too… [Kids] feel important and they feel valued, because you’re dedicating that time to them,” she shared.
