Jennifer Lopez Talks Motherhood In Elle Canada Magazine

Whenever the opportunity comes up, it just seems like Jennifer Lopez LOVES to talk about her twins, Emme and Max. The chart topper recently opened up to Elle Canada, where she talks about her decision to show her fans personal pictures of her kids and how she’s trying to juggle her career with motherhood. Here are some highlights of what she says:

On being a role model to her children:

“I hope I’m teaching them about life by example. Like that with hard work you can accomplish anything; you have to be charitable; that you have to treat people the way you want them to treat you. You can tell kids things until you’re blue in the face, like, ‘Don’t drink!’ But if you drink all day, they’re going to probably wind up drinking. They will pick up on that. I just try to be a good mom and set a good example.”

On showing personal pictures of her kids during her shows:

When you’re doing your own show, you can craft things exactly the way you want them. Nobody gets to interpret it for you. It was really nice to be able to do that.I think, as an artist, I wanted to really how all the different parts and sides of who I am: who people see me as, who I really am, then me as a mom and then where I am in my life today. I feel like that journey is super-important. There’s no way I could leave them out, you know?”

On who she thinks the most powerful woman in the world is: 

“I would have to say the women who raised me: my mother and my grandmother. They were very powerful, very strong Puerto Rican women. And they taught me everything I know about working hard, being proper and being a lady.”

On her TV-project about a lesbian couple called “The Fosters:” 

“It’s about a couple who foster children. People are making a big deal about it because of the content. But it’s just a pilot right now. We don’t know where it’s going to go.”

Jennifer Lopez & Family Leave The Claridges Hotel

It looks like someone was a little camera shy here! Chart topper Jennifer Lopez was spotted leaving the Claridges Hotel with her family and her boyfriend Casper Smart in London, England on Wednesday afternoon. And by the looks of these pictures, her daughter Emme was in no mood to get her photo snapped by the paparazzi (and I don’t blame her!).

Jennifer and her crew have been doing a lot of shopping while she’s been touring Europe for the past few weeks. She looks great everywhere she goes, doesn’t she? Talk about a yummy mummy!

Ben Affleck Talks About His Wife Jennifer Garner, Their Family Life And Staying In Touch With Jennifer Lopez In New

When it comes to Ben Affleck, it looks like there are two things that only matter to him in his life right now: his family and his work. The Hollywood actor and celebrity dad recently opened up to The Hollywood Reporter, in which he talked about his wife Jennifer Garner, his kids, and a certain ex-girlfriend. Here are some snippets:

On his wife Jennifer Garner: “Jennifer played such a profound role in making me a better person. We don’t have a perfect marriage, but she inspired me; and finding myself in that marriage and having a child dovetailed with getting to be a little more mature.” He added of his wife, “She truly is kind. She means no one any harm. She doesn’t have ill will for any person. She’s not competitive with other people. She’s not spiteful. It’s one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times. Every time I go, ‘F— him!’ I see in her face that she just thinks that’s petty and small.”

On work and kids taking up a lot of time: “There are so many decisions to be made, and it’s more than you can get to each day. There is this underlying anxiety not just about getting the movie done but getting it done really well. It keeps my head spinning — even when I am giving the kids a bath. I can be giving them a bath or feeding them, and sometimes they say, ‘Dad, pay attention!’ Kids eat up that kind of hobby time. I used to ride motorcycles. I used to play basketball. And now basically I’m at home with them, or I work.”

On staying in touch with Jennifer Lopez: “We don’t have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there’ll be an e-mail saying, ‘Oh, your movie looks great.’ I remember when she got American Idol. I said: ‘This was really smart. Good luck.’ I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful.”
