Jennifer Lopez was selfish for first time during pregnancy

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Celeb Parents

Jennifer LopezTwins Max and Emme are six-months-old, and mom Jennifer Lopez is sharing how she slowed down once she found out she was pregnant to savor the experience. She told husband Marc Anthony shortly after she found out she was pregnant, "...this is the first time in my life where I'm going to be a little bit selfish. I don't know if I'm going to have kids again, so I want it to be a beautiful experience. I don't want to have any drama. I just want to be smiling every day."

She may hail from the block, but it's hard to imagine that this is really the "first" time in her life that blingtastic Jenny has been "selfish." Isn't she the same mom who doesn't let her kids wear the same outfit twice? Still, her life with Marc Anthony is so much more settled and private than it's ever been, and choosing to slow down and be taken care of during her twin pregnancy is evidence of that.

She thanked Marc Anthony for taking up the slack with a book full of photos... of herself. Marc Anthony's a romantic, that's for sure, but after nine long months of cooking meals and picking up after a very pregnant wife, I think that my husband would have been much happier with a pair of hard-to-get basketball tickets instead. Then again, I'm no Jenny Lopez!
