Shakira looks absolutely stunning on the April cover of Latina, with stick straight, buttery blonde hair and a low-cut, crisp white blazer. With her new, self-titled album dropping this month, Shak was happy to talk about how amazing her fans are -- even comparing their relationship to sex! -- as well as her romance with soccer star Gerard Pique.

The singer revealed that she loves how much her fans adore her son Milan, 1, from afar, saying, "They express so much love for Milan, so much affection. I can only hope that as he grows up he learns how to give that love back to all of those people that give him so much every day."

Shak loves being a mom and if she were less busy, she'd be building her own soccer team-sized empire, saying, "If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already. I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard -- my own fútbol team."

Milan has influenced mommy's music, as well. "I used to go in circles around an idea, but since he arrived I don’t have much time -- I have to rush back home -- so he has helped me learn how to focus," she confessed.

As for Milan's father? He loves Shakira for who she is, not her persona. "He’s with me because he wants to be with Shakira the person, not the celebrity,” the 'Can't Remember to Forget You' singer said. “There’s real love, there’s no ulterior motives. And I’m with him because he’s the most amazing man I’ve ever met. We want the same things, we like the same things, we hate the same things. I have never been with someone so passionate in my life."

They sound like soulmates. And they share a birthday -- Feb. 2!

The Colombian dynamo also likened her relationship with a certain sect of fans to sex! "The relationship I have with my Hispanic fans is very deep and intricate," she said. "It’s like a 20-year marriage, but with a lot of passion, with a lot of sex. There’s mutual understanding and trust."

That's the perfect kind of relationship and Shak has it with both Pique and her fans.
