The 36-year-old singer and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique welcomed their first child, Milan Pique Mebarak, on Jan. 22.

"He's great. He's so mellow, but he's very alert too," she said in an interview Wednesday night at House of Blues in West Hollywood, Calif. "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."

Shakira joined fellow "The Voice" coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Usher at a red carpet event celebrating the NBC signing competition's top 12 finalists.

"The Voice" host Carson Daly says baby Milan has been a welcome addition to the kid friendly set, which features regular visits from Daly's young brood, Usher's children and Levine's nephews.

"With Milan it's a full-blown nursery!" explained Daly of Shakira's baby proofed double-wide trailer. "It's just like Shakira's door opens and 'It's a Small World' starts playing. It's built for Milan. And it's really special and it's cool. We're like a little family."

But according to Shakira, it's not the children who cause the most trouble.

"It's like a kindergarten because these guys are already babies. They're babies!" she joked of her fellow coaches.

When it comes to getting those famous hips back into pre-baby shape, Shakira says she's still working on it.

"I still have a long way to go. I still have a few pounds over to lose," she said. "I look decent."
