Shakira admits she is learning how to balance a demanding work schedule with being a new mum one day at a time.
The 36-year-old singer and her football star boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed their first child, Milan Pique Mebarak, on January 22.
"He's great. He's so mellow, but he's very alert too," she said in an interview in West Hollywood, California.
"It's like he knows what's going on around him. He knows when someone comes in the room or comes out. He's something."
She said of juggling her personal and professional life: "It's part of motherhood you know. You've got to figure it out as you go."
Shakira joined fellow The Voice coaches, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Usher, at a red carpet event celebrating the US singing competition's top 12 finalists.
