Shakira shows slim post-baby body in workout photos

It may only be four months since Shakira welcomed her son Sasha, but the singer has already regained her enviable figure. The 38-year-old showed off her toned abs as she shared pictures of herself working out with her personal trainer on Sunday.

"Dancing and working with @theannakaiser today!! @aktinmotion," Shakira wrote.

The collage of photos showed the Waka Waka singer dancing in a studio wearing a black crop top and leggings with her blonde locks worn down in natural curls. Unsurprisingly the picture attracted over 270,000 likes from fans, with many expressing their envy of her toned physique.

Shakira recently told HELLO! Fashion that she had worked hard to slim down following the birth of her second child, after being limited to wearing "sweat pants" for a few months.

"For a while I could only wear sweat pants because I was that intermediate size that you're not a small, you're not a large," she said. "But right now I'm back in my jeans which is good news! But only from two weeks ago I got back in my jeans. Before it was quite sad, I couldn't even get in past my knees."

Admitting that she ate "so much" during her pregnancy, Shakira said that she has stepped up her exercise routine and is watching what she eats in a bid to get back to her pre-baby weight.

"It just takes discipline and commitment and a little bit of self-restraint with food, which I love so much. But you know I still eat a lot, but just eat nutritious food and not anything excessively fattening or stuff like that.

"I just keep an eye on what I eat and exercise regularly," she explained.

The mum-of-two credited her toned figure to a varied exercise routine including boxing, dancing, tennis and going to the gym, but admitted that she does allow herself a treat from time to time.

"Chocolate," she said. "I'm a chocaholic!"
