Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez feels “lucky” to be a mother to nine-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Polez has Max and Emme with her former husband Marc Anthony. She says she loves the “special connection” her children have with each other.
“Well, I tell the story of ‘I Hope You Dance’ and why I put it in the show, but it was really about me wanting to do something for the kids and dedicate something to them. Really, the thought was, ‘How do I put something in there that they can see years from now and it would mean something to them?’ And that’s why I picked ‘I Hope You Dance’,” Lopez told Paper magazine.
“Yeah, that whole section has become about my kids, and I put the boy and the girl dancer in it to represent Max and Emme and how special it is to have that twin connection and how special it is to be a mom of twins and how they follow each other all through life and when one is gone, or takes off on his own for a little while, the other one gets a little lost, and then they find each other again.
“”It’s a special connection, and I wanted that whole section to be about them, and me being their mom and how lucky I feel to have that, and impart something to them that they can watch years from now and say, ‘My mom sang that for me. That was all about me’,” she added.
