06/16/2016 at 05:05 PM ET

Nothing about Jennifer Lopez‘s life with twins Maximilian and Emme is ordinary, but it works for them.

In an upcoming interview with Fox 5 New York’s Rosanna Scotto, Lopez opens up about life with her 8-year-olds, and how they make school and mom’s time in the spotlight work.

“We don’t have a normal life, I don’t have normal kids,” Lopez says from Las Vegas, where she’s currently in residence at AXIS Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “I’m not normal. So our life is not normal. I’ve come to terms with that.”

Jennifer Lopez may be known for her sultry music videos and sexy films like The Boy Next Door, but now she’s got a family-friendly film her kids can enjoy!

“I mean, it is so exciting for me,” Lopez, 45, tells PEOPLE of being able to take her twins, Emme and Max, 7, to her new animated film Home.

The movie — which showcases the voices of Lopez, Rihanna and Jim Parsons – won’t be out for another week, but it has already spawned some catchphrases in the Lopez household.

“I didn’t even know they knew about the movie! But a couple of weeks ago, I was trying to okay a snippet [of the film] to go on Instagram and I’m looking at it and they hear it coming from my phone,” says the American Idol judge, who performed “Feel the Light” on the show. “And my son goes, ‘Hey, is that the song from the movie that has the guy who says, “Put your hands in the air like you just don’t care?” ‘ ”

“They were like, ‘It comes out March 27.’ I was like, ‘How do you know this?’ ” she says in disbelief. “And Max is like, ‘We saw the trailer!’ They are so connected in a way that I don’t even know about. It’s crazy.”

Ask Jennifer Lopez what role she most cherishes and the answer’s a no-brainer: being a mom.

“Kids make you believe in all kinds of things, like how anything is possible,” The Boy Next Door star – and mother to 6-year-old twinsMax and Emme — tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

Which is why she’d be thrilled to add to her brood, even at age 45. “I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me because of my age, but I would love to have another baby, to be blessed one more time,” says Lopez, who is currently single.

Jennifer Lopez: My Kids Are ‘Growing Up So Differently Than Me’

06/20/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Although multi-talented star Jennifer Lopez doesn’t exactly rock the “mom jeans” every day, she wants her children to grow up humbly aware of their privilege.

“They’re growing up so differently than me,” Lopez, 44, said Thursday at the Sirius XM Town Hall segment in New York City.

“I grew up in The Bronx — we shared a bed until we were 16 and it was so different. [Emme] and [Max] have their own rooms; we live in a big house. When we go to grandma’s house they’re like, ‘Grandma’s house is small.’ It occurs to them that this is different, so my whole thing is about teaching them to be aware of the world and realizing that we are in a position now that we can help other people.”

Lopez says the 6-year-old twins‘ personalities are still forming but that they’re “just perfect” in her eyes.

“They’re loving and happy and healthy, thank God,” she shares. “And they love to jump around and have fun.”
