Jennifer Lopez Says Motherhood Is Her Most Important Job
Jennifer Lopez took Hollywood by storm! She's an actress, singer, dancer, business tycoon and former American Idol judge, but Jennifer's most important job is motherhood.
With all of her projects and roles, it's easy to forget that the 43-year-old is mom to twins Emme and Max who are now 4, but that's the one thing the performer will always make time for: her kids.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Jennifer talked candidly about being a parent.
"Mommy. It's just the one thing you don't want to mess up," she said. "You can mess up in all other areas and get back up, but you don't want to mess up there."
Wednesday night on MTV First, the superstar premiered her new music video "Goin In" and said her kids are her world.
"They're so precious to you, and they make everything better in my life," she said. "They make me feel better every single day. Definitely, it's the most important thing."
So what do J.Lo's children think of their pop-star mom?
"You know, my daughter gets very excited [when I perform] and then my son says nothing," she said. "But then, like, we'll be in the car randomly, and yesterday he says to me, 'Mommy, you're a great singer.' And I was like, 'Thank you, baby.' No fanfare with it... just matter-of-factly, 'I think you're good.' And of course, that made my day."
Jennifer is on tour right now with Enrique Iglesias and just released a greatest-hits compilation Dance Again...The Hits.
