Jennifer Lopez Hands Off Her Pregnancy Pillow – to Marc!

When Jennifer Lopez delivered twins Emme Maribel and Maximilian David in 2008, husband Marc Anthony received a whole lot more than two beautiful babies! The singer also inherited Lopez’s much-loved pregnancy pillow.

“Carrying twins was really uncomfortable because you lay on one side and you feel there’s a baby, and you lay on the other side and you feel there’s a baby,” The Back-up Plan star, 40, tells PARADE.

“I actually had this really big pregnancy pillow … that I used at night and Marc still sleeps with it to this day.”

Having just celebrated their second birthday in February, Max and Emme have become increasingly aware of their surroundings.

As a result, Lopez notes, she is determined to consistently double up the love — and treats! — she dishes out.

“It’s like if I give one a little bit of candy or food or whatever, I give the other one a little bit too. If I kiss my daughter I go, ‘Oh, I don’t want my son to see me kissing her without kissing him,'” she says. “So you just have to make sure that they both feel equally loved.”

That’s what makes a good mommy! I can’t even imagine twins, but I’m sure it’s double the love. Always happy for anyone who gets the chance to have kids when it’s their dream!

Why would she being giving candy to a two year old??? Does she give them soda too????

Joan on

Does anybody ever read what they write and check their spelling anymore?????

Pineapple on

Yes, just like when you leave your kids with the nanny 20 hours a day, you cant just leave one child behind, leave the other too. A good parent is there for their child. I highly doubt she is a “hands on” parent. Cant really seeing her getting up 20 times a night to feed her babies. I would say Jen Garner is a better celebrity mother.

dee on

It is very hard for me to like Jennifer….she took another womans husband without even batting an eye!!

MB on

Why can’t you give candy to a 2 year old? You must not have kids! Also, she didn’t say ALL she gives them is candy, maybe it is a rare treat! Sheesh!!!

All Boricua’s make good moms. Just in case no one knows Boricua means you are a Puerto Rican!!!!!!!!!!!! Puerto Rico La Isla Del Encanto….. :D

I think Jennifer Lopez is a wonderful mother, actress, singer, businesswoman!!!! Glad shes back. I agree with Pineapple I also think Jen Garner is wonderful…but no where close to Jennifer Lopez…sorry sweetie….J Lo. basically “has it all”…….

db on

OMG……isn’t she wonderful…..isn’t she marvelous…..let us worship at the Jenny from the block altar…it takes a village…and she can afford one…get over yourselves…a great mom is one who stays home juggles everyones schedules, cleans, cooks, has laundry up to eyeballs and moves every three years if not more…..and has no family close by…and to top if off her husband is deployed overseas and ya don’t know when or if he will be home again…..I’m talking the “military wife”! When are we going to stop putting these people on a pedestal like they are not human….the only difference….$$$$$$$$ and fame…..

maggie on

db i kinda agree with you but at the same time………… WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ON PEOPLE.COM/CBB IF YOU DON’T LIKE CELEBS AND US COMMENTING ABOUT THEM? SHE’S TALKING ABOUT HER KIDS AND WE’RE APPLAUDING HER AND OTHER CELEBS LIKE HER. IF YOU REALLY DON’T LIKE US SAYING “OH WE’RE SOOOO HAPPY FOR THEM” OR “OH SHE’S A GREAT MOM” THEN DON’T LOG ON THIS SITE. SIMPLE AS THAT.

db everyone doesn’t fall into the neat package that you presented. I’m a single mother that works everyday, juggles 2 schedules,sometimes cooks and pays someone to clean my house so I can spend more time with my daughter and ailing mother. I’m a “great” mother, just different from you.

You are right just because people have fame and money doesn’t make them better than the rest of us but remember that just because your struggle is different doesn’t make it more significant than the everyone else’s either.

I love Jenny. I have what they call polish twins. Got pregnant right away after my first was born. I wish to this day they had been twins. I would have been so much easier. They are roughly a year apart. Crazy. It is double the love. I have two boys and it is hard working full time, coming home trying to get them to sports practices etc. My hubby is great with them too. It’s not easy today but I try to give enough love to both so they don’t feel slighted in the least. The candy thing gets used as a reward. I tend to spoil with kisses and hugs.

db, u sound a little bitter about ur circumstances to me.

de on

Love little stories like this :)

Karlie on

I just love Jennifer and when I got pregnant I went and bought a body pillow for my pregnancy and it has helped with comfort. Thanks Jennifer.

Karlie Philpott on

I loved my href=”http://www.thebodypillowshop.com”>pregnancy pillow and still use it even though my youngest child is three. Having the extra comfort while sleep is recommended for anyone not just pregnant women. I’ve expereience how much better I feel after a good night sleep and can thank my body pillow for it.
