Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony: United Front

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were spotted with 5-year-old twins Max and Emme in Los Angeles, Calif. on Wednesday (June 19). Putting on a united front for their kids, the friendly exes attended an event at the twins’ school.

“When Marc and I decided to separate, I thought, ‘I’m not going to let this turn me into someone unhopeful who doesn’t believe [in love] anymore.'” J.Lo recently told Telegraph. “I didn’t want to just survive it. I wanted to grow from it. And I did learn a lot.”

“Most importantly, to love myself first,” Jennifer continued. “As women, I don’t think we do that enough. We always love somebody else more than ourselves.”

She added: “I did that for a long time and I couldn’t understand why things weren’t working. Then I realised that I wasn’t valuing myself in the way that I deserved.”

“You accept things that are less than what you want, and then you wonder why you find yourself in these situations,” Jennifer continued. “You think, ‘I wouldn’t treat anyone in this way so why am I being treated like this? Why can’t I find somebody who treats me in the way that I treat them?”’

And she also talked about losing the 50 pounds she gained during her pregnancy.

“When I got pregnant, I remember watching my back, belly and butt grow and thinking, ‘I will never be the same again,'” she shared.

She added: “Then I remember right after the twins were born having that weird jiggly belly – and kind of loving that, too. Because I earned that jiggly belly. Then came trying to get my body back into shape and how long that took. A whole year.”

In terms of the illusion Hollywood sets on postpartum bodies, Jennifer said, “It’s bull. Sure, you can dress nicely after a couple of months and people will say, ‘Oh, look how amazing they look in a picture taken from a good angle.’”

“But the truth is it takes your body time to go back, and I think these days women are too hard on themselves with that,” she added. “Nobody bounces back straightaway. You don’t know what kind of Spanx these women are wearing under their clothes, and what other tricks are going on.”

She went on to say that motherhood is her “first and most favorite thing.”

She added: “It’s also the scariest thing, so terrifying and daunting. But it brings me so much joy. I think about being a performer and having all these amazing moments on stage and movie sets.”

“Still nothing matches the joy I get from coming off stage and having my kids waiting there in the wings,” J.Lo shared. “That’s when my two worlds collide and I feel whole.”

When asked what the twins think of her job, she laughed, “They know that mom sings and dances.”

And Emme has already taken control of her wardrobe, the proud mom continues.

“People are born a certain way,” Jennifer shares. “They can learn and grow and evolve but they have a DNA to them and from very early on she was in my closet, sitting among the clothes. She loves fashion, jewellery and hats – and she’s picked up things from me. I like to lay my outfits on the floor so I can look at them and she’s started doing that, too.”

She added of her mini fashionista: “She’ll have her little jacket and shorts laid out, add a little bag to it and then stand back and look at it.”

    Such an unfortunate looking little girl JLO must be so disappointed.

    • Jule

      Not as disappointed as your parents would be if they knew what a mean person you are. Picking on a small child? Way to go!

    • @ Isabella

      My god are you pathetic to pick on Emme because to hate her mother is beyond sad.

    • anonymous

      Emme is actually quite a cute girl. She’s just glowering at the paps because they are a bunch of strange men with cameras yelling their names. You, on the other hand, are truly ugly on the inside, and probably on the outside too, along with being a loser.

      My god are you pathetic to pick on Emma just because you hate her mother is beyond sad.

      I think both kids are very cute. They always seems very happy and well loved. Just wrong to call any child unfortunate looking… all kids are cute either with their looks or their actions. Remember people beauty comes from within it is not all just about your physical appearance.

      At least some people use their eyes. she looks like her dad= not cute.

      • Jule

        There is absolutely no need to judge the looks of a child (or an adult for that matter). None whatsoever. Neither is there an excuse for putting this kind of hatred out there. It’s not ‘just a bit of fun’. The more we do this, the more normal it will become and I dread to think what this might mean for our society…

  • Anon

    The kids are adorable! Emme looks exactly like Jennifer.

    • Annie

      Yes, she looks like her mother, before plastic surgeries.
      Emme is not really pretty but I’m sure they will fix that.

      • Jule

        You might want to try fixing your soul before going after children’s looks. What’s happened to humanity? Did it just take a bit of anonymity for many to become so mean?

  • Gisele

    Marc Anthony looks like a walking skeletor! He is truly so skinny. He needs to eat more than a few hamburgers!! LOL!
