With her twins Max and Emme set to turn 3 in February, mom Jennifer Lopez says she can’t believe how quickly time is flying by.
“Over this Thanksgiving week, I was sitting outside and reflecting on how fast this year had passed,” the American Idol judge tells US. “Watching your kids get bigger – my babies, how much they’ve grown in a year!”
It was announced yesterday that the multi-talented mama is the new national spokesperson for The Boys & Girls Club of America. She reveals that it’s a cause close to her heart, saying that she remembers being “that little girl from the Bronx, running to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club to sing and dance and perform for the first time in front of an audience.”
She may now be an international star, but Jennifer says her heart will always be in the Bronx, where she grew up.
“No matter where I wake up…I’m just always right there in the Bronx. I never miss the Bronx because it’s always with me. I guess I’m always going to be Jenny From The Block!”
