Jennifer Lopez: I'd Love To Have More Kids

09/30/2008 at 11:30 AM ET

That she welcomed her first children — 7-month-old twins Max David and Emme Maribel — at the age of 38 isn’t slowing Jennifer Lopez down in the least. Now 39, she recently completed her first triathlon, is recording songs for an upcoming greatest hits album, unveiled a new men’s fragrance and is even contemplating a bigger brood with husband Marc Anthony

"I’d love to have more kids. I don’t know when, we’ll see, you know, that’s the same way my first ones happened! We’ll just do it the same way for the second [time around]!"

Max and Emme are "getting big," Jennifer tells Entertainment Tonight, and hitting plenty of milestones along the way — like crawling and sitting up. "[Motherhood] changed my whole perspective on life," Jennifer says. "It’s great because it makes you very focused on the things in your life that you need to concentrate on. It makes everything very simple." The triathlon is something that clearly required a great deal of that focus, and Jennifer trained for more than two months in anticipation of the September 14th race. Because she was wary of paparazzi following her every move, however, the vast majority of that training was done within her Long Island home. While her indoors-only technique might be perceived as unconventional by her fellow triathletes, it did offer the unique advantage of added time with the twins.

"I could just throw the babies in a little playpen on the floor, or their little mat. They’d just be right there, and if they got cranky I’d pick them up and put them on my lap while I rode the bike."

Oh i’d love to see the updates on those precious babies, they must be looking more and more like Jen and Marc. Hopefully we will see them soon with all the regards to the privacy of the family

…and I’d like to see her riding a bike with a baby on her lap :o)

Not to be negative but she talks an awful lot about how involved she is w/ the twins. I would love to be a fly on the wall in that house to see it for myself.

Nina I totally agree with you, it’s almost like she feels she constantly has to talk about how involved she is. Jen garner, salma hayek, gwen stefani, katie holmes and the list goes on and on seem very hands on, you don’t have to talk about it 24/7. I like to see pics of her with the babies once in awhile too instead of just at fashion shows or events

I know what you mean, Nina,it is like she is trying just a bit too hard to be believable. No, really I do just chuck my kid in a playpen and we don’t have nannies or anything, look how cool and down to earth I am. No-one is suggesting she is a bad parent but she seems to be overcompensating a lot in interviews. Although I wouldn’t like to lump these two together, I get the same feeling from Kate Moss. When she talks about Lila she stresses how heavily involved she is in her life, but when I get the tube to work every morning she is in the London newspapers, falling out of clubs, at festivals, fashion parties and events across the world. It all doesn’t quite add up. That said, my friend works at her daughters school and said she did come to Parents Evening so she obviously is involved, but probably not to the extent that she would like us to beleive. I think it is just a bit of a contradiction if a celeb is happy to discuss the contents of every nappy with a magazine but is never pictured with their children.

There is nothing at all wrong with her talking about how she’s invloved with her babies. The press is the one asking.

I’ll tell you what’s terrible, putting her kids out there for the constant daily papparazzi mania. I think it’s really bad that little Violet and some other kids are exposed to the cameras daily. That’s not good at all. But people seem to love Jennifer Garner so it’s always cute that she does that and it means she’s such a great mom.

Please that has to be horrible for a kid.

I wanna add too that I would love to see little Max and Emme out and about, but I’m very glad that Jennifer keeps her kids from that type of exposure. 🙂

terri- Are you suggesting that Jennifer Garner keep Violet cooped up at home all the time? When we see her out with Violet, she is just living her life, taking her child to places that “normal” parents take their kids (the park, the library, the farmer’s market, etc.).

Really ,what a joke….she cant even stay home with the ones she has..SO OVER HER
