Complimenting pregnant women is not easy for outsiders. Usually it’s friends and family showering the expectant mother with kind words about their glowing skin (and skin really is the only thing you can compliment because there’s so fucking much of it).
When Shakira posted this photo of her round belly, about to pop out an adorable little vagburster that better not taint her ability to yodel and make her hips tell the truth, I found myself reaching for something nice to say.
“Shakira looks great without makeup,” is what I came up with. Not bad, eh?
I also like that she signed her name as “Shak” on Instagram, because it sounds like the name of a monster that only leaves its swamp on virgin-eating Thursdays.
