“By nature I am not tough, believe it or not. No. I am a lover. And with my kids I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he’s pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen. But my son will just scream and yell and run. I’m like, Aaaaah, what do I do with this?!” – J-Lo on disciplining her twins.
“They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them. And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well. And that requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!” – J-Lo on motherhood.
“They’re my coconuts, that comes from when they were little and in their cribs and started growing hair, it looked just like a coconut to me. They both look like coconuts. I have this beautiful necklace which was given to me at Christmas, there are two coconuts and their initials on it.” – proud mama J.Lo on her twin’s nicknames.
“You don’t leave your kids. See, your kids are right here, my kids are right out there. You have to be happy so they are happy. It takes a village to raise babies. My mum is here with me too. When you have dreams you make them happen and they’re only better for it.” – J.Lo on the challenges of raising children while juggling a busy career.
“I remember looking at Marc and going, ‘We should call the doctor’…I started panicking a little bit and he was panicking, too, because…we were thinking, Did somebody drop her when we weren’t looking? I just remember looking at him and saying, ‘If f Emme’s not going to be OK, I’m not going to be OK. He’s like, ‘I’m not going to be OK—none of us are going to be OK.’ ” – J.Lo on discovering a bump on her daughter’s head.
“They see everything, they go and do so much more then I have ever done in my whole life, in all my travels, and they’re only three.” – J.Lo on her well-traveled tots.
