Jennifer Lopez says she’s still figuring out motherhood while working on her busy career.
She tells The Daily Record, “When I was on my own without kids, I had no trouble. I worked from day to night. I worked 24/7. Now I am different. I am a working mother now. And to find the right balance is just very difficult. The babies become the most important thing in my life. Everything else has to take a back seat. I am figuring it out as I go along with these two angels of mine. And we are doing just fine.”
The American Idol judge says her new album Love was inspired by her 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
After having babies, you get a different perspective on life, on love. I’ve never felt anything like that. It’s such an intense profound love. How it should be, relationships. That’s what I want to explore in my new music. Music is still my first love. This new album was two years in the making. I can’t wait to show it to the world.”
When she is at home she likes to sing to her kids and dance around.
She said, “It’s a wonderful cardio workout. Since I had the twins, I need to watch what I eat a little bit more than I used to.”
Now at 41, Lopez still wants to feel attractive.
She admits, “I still feel much the same as before. My style hasn’t really changed. At times, I want to be pretty and then I just want to be sexy. I do believe mothers can be sexy.”
