Jennifer Lopez is better known as a pop diva, but she is indeed a multi-talented personality. She is a singer, actress, fashionista, producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
Lopez doesn’t only possess a successful pop career, but Lopez is also a powerful multi-millionaire businesswoman. She undoubtedly has more resources than most, but above all this, she shines as a mom. Jennifer is the mother of twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximilian David Muñiz from her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
She has countless projects to juggle; still, she can count herself in the list of most dedicated moms in showbiz. Lopez is a modern single mom and tries to do her best to raise her children. Even though she is a renowned celebrity, she never ignored her role as a mother, and that itself is the most significant role for her.
Sometimes Lopez behaves just like an average mom taking care of every little detail of the kids. She helped her kids to prepare for the big day of Halloween even though she could have easily got the nanny to do it. But that is not all. Read on to find out more!
