Why Shakira Says She's a Serial Documenter When It Comes to Her Kids
As a mother of two and a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Shakira understands the importance of cherishing every moment with her kids but also taking some time for herself.
The Colombian-born performer and her partner, Spanish soccer player Gerard Piqué, are not only raising two little boys, but they're also trying to get a hang of this parenting thing — just like any other new mom and dad. After their 3-year-old son, Milan, was born, the talented performer turned to her own mom, her mother-in-law, and the Internet for advice on everything from specifically how to raise her children bilingually to just generally how to be a good mother.
Inspired by all of her research and the birth of her second son, Sasha, the dedicated mother decided to create the parenting app Grow. In conjunction with Fisher-Price, the program is not only filled with developmental tips and age-appropriate activities, but also social capabilities to help moms and dads capture and share all of their favorite memories.
In honor of the bilingual app's launch, Shakira chatted with POPSUGAR to reveal not only her best parenting advice but also what kind of dad Gerard is and how it's possible to relax as a mom.
