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.”

Jennifer Lopez Celebrated Max and Emme’s Birthday with Trampolines

03/21/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Jennifer Lopez‘s adorable twins requested a rainbow birthday party last year, but they chose a bouncier theme to celebrate turning 6 on Feb. 22.

“They’re getting way too big for me. I don’t know what I’m gonna do,” Lopez, 44, said of Max and Emme on Friday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “They had their birthday at a trampoline place. You know, where you just jump on trampolines all day.”

“That wears them out, that’s good,” DeGeneres quipped.

The busy mom — who balances finishing her 10th album with judging American Idol, designing a Kohls collection, shooting a new TV show and, well, always looking fabulous — agreed.

“I loved it. They were asleep by eight o’clock,” Lopez said. “I was like, ‘Woo! Gotta do this every weekend.'”

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
