Marc Anthony says he & J.Lo don’t have nannies, butlers or nursery bling


Marc Anthony called into the Billy Bush radio show yesterday in advance of his new tour. He revealed that he and his wife, Jennifer Lopez, don’t have a nanny for their three month-old twins, Max and Emme. He also said that he’s getting the short end of the stick and that his job is caring for the twins overnight from 10 pm to 8 am. As for reports that they have multiple butlers and gold chandeliers hanging in the twins’ nursery, Anthony says all of that is false and that they’re very hands on:

“[Max and Emme] are just big and gorgeous,” he told Billy.

Marc revealed that he and wife Jennifer Lopez handle baby duties all by themselves.

“She expects me to help and she makes no bones about it,” Marc said. “I get the late shift. I get literally from 10 PM because we don’t have a nanny. It’s just me and Jennifer figuring it out. From 10 PM to 8 [AM], that’s my shift”

That’s right – Marc and Jennifer have no nanny for their twins.

“It’s just us man,” Marc said. “We’re figuring it out and having a great time.”

When asked if Jennifer has been working out hard to get her figure back, Marc confirmed his wife is in fitness mode, but more importantly, she is all about their children.

“Yeah, yes she is, but she’s more in mommy mode,” Marc said. “She has three movies lined up and she’s eager to go back to work, but the babies have been a blessing all the way around and she’s just amazing. She’s such an amazing mom and I’m so proud of her. She’s such a gem to watch.”

He also joked “I’ve heard that they have 24 karat gold chandeliers and 8 nannies and 10 butlers and stuff like that. No, It’s just us.”

Good for them! There was a story that their nanny “abruptly left” for whatever reason around mid April, and it sounds like they’re not in a hurry to hire a replacement or just haven’t found one yet. They must have a babysitter or at least a family member to watch the twins though, as they’ve made several appearances together without the newborns.

They have also supposedly said that “the next year will be all about family,” but they’re not putting their respective careers on hold. Lopez has three movies coming up, according to Anthony, and she is also working on a fragrance and a reality show with TLC. Anthony will do a music tour soon and it’s unknown whether he’ll bring his wife and twins along.

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are shown on 5/12/08 at a Christian Dior fashion show, thanks to WENN.

    Peach lipstick and steel blue eyeshadow… up to her brows nonetheless.

    JLo makes such great makeup choices.

  2. Devilgirl says:

    Yes, they are just such simple folk! I know that the nursery that they have is just so plain and sensible. I know all of my friends with babies have cashmere baby blankets, silk bedding and furniture. Isn’t that all common in a standard nursery? The only reason they don’t have a nanny at the moment is because the woman quit. I can only imagine the bullshit one would have to put up with working for JLo and Skeletor!

  3. RaeJillian says:

    these two make me feel very yucky inside.
    :mrgreen:

  4. RaeJillian says:

    um – what is up with all these twins? it is an alarming rate? do you thinks it’s natural?

  5. Silly Lilly says:

    yAAAAAAAAAWN… I call BS. If they have no sitters or help… WHO is watching the babies when they are out? Hmmm???? For the record, his perspective is warped. Their nursery cost more to DECORATE than homes cost. but hey whose counting its their money… its cool. Speaking of money, they have so much of it they SHOULD take a few years off and take care of their children. THATS what the rest of the world does! Its called MATERNITY LEAVE/PATERNITY LEAVE. I think teachers get a year. You do not need Nannies and Butlers if you have a ton of money and can just do whatever ya like because you do not have to work. I am jealous. LOL.

    anyone else smell some pants on fire?

  7. Nova says:

    I think this crazy influx of twins has more to do with the fact that these women are waiting later in life to start having babies. Once a woman hits 30…there is a higher likeliness of kicking out two eggs. Thats why none of these hollywood twins are identical…all fraternal. I have twins myself…fraternal boys and I had them when i was 30. They do run in my family though and it was said that J-Lo has twins in her family too. So there ya go. :D

  8. Leni says:

    The rate of twins is called -artificial insemination. It is much harder to get pregnant past 35 (and yes, there are always exceptions), and most of these stars do not have the patience to go the old fashioned way either. So you have the money, go get the work done. The incidence of twins is very high in the celebrity world compared to the normal world.
    As far as no nannies, I assume that means not counting the maids, live in help,etc. Yeah, I believe them-NOT.

  9. Anna says:

    If it’s true that they’re handling their babies alone, good for them and the babes, it’d be more than I would have expected from them.

    However, it’s true that his perspective is skewed. Just because he hasn’t got a chandelier and everything plated in gold, doesn’t mean they’re not all living in a house costing more than most people make in a lifetime. So his idea of “simple” is probably a whole lot different from our idea of “simple”.

    I wish them the best of luck though. I think J.Lo and Skeletor are a ridiculous couple and that she married him out of desperation, but I hope the babies will have a good life, not in the material sense of the word. It’ll be hard for them on the playground, with Skeletor as their daddy.

  10. Kaiser says:

    I *actually* think they love each other and adore their babies. What does this say about me?

    But I also think this “no nanny” business is total bullshit.

  11. Ma says:

    Artificial insemination (AI) is the process by which sperm is placed into a female’s vagina (wikipedia).
    SAME as when a male ejaculates during sex. Wouldn’t produce any more children unless there were MORE EGGS to fertilize.
    There are drugs (clomid) that can help women expel an egg and sometimes many eggs. And whoever said age definitely factors into twins is right too.

  12. Frenchie says:

    so everything is soooo nice and wonderful ? eventually we will learn in 2 years that she had a major post partum depression. Why is it him who is talking, and not her, anyway ?

    A good thing about twins, when you go out at night, you don’t have to hire a babysitter because they keep company to each other !!!

  13. vdantev says:

    *in my best Dr. Evil voice*

    RRRRIIIIIGGGGHHHHHHTTTT

    ‘Jenny from the block’ spent something close to 250,000 dollars on the nursery. Don’t believe the humble hype.

  14. Syko says:

    If you believe this, I have a bridge I can sell you cheap.

  15. Hollz says:

    Leni, i think you mean invirto, where eggs are implanted already fertilized into the womb.

  16. Ron says:

    Wow–how totally impressive Mr Lopez. You actually take care of your kids like, oh say, the other 99% of the population. Douche.

  17. Me says:

    great, but what of his other children?? figuring it all out he says?? he is not a first time dad. idiot.

  18. lola says:

    Why do celebs think we believe them? Well I guess some one does. That is why I love Heidi Klum, she moves with her nannies and PR be damned.

  19. claud9 says:

    Thank you “Me”! Why is he talking like this is new to him? He’s already had children with his first wife, did he forget? And having 3 movies, a reality show, a fragrance and tour in the works does not sound like they’re just in parenting mode, with no help whatsoever imho :roll:

  20. kate says:

    no help? no way is that true. she looks like if a kid pooped his diapers in her presence she would barf and he is too skinny & frail to pick up a baby.

  21. DANA says:

    how stupid! i know plenty of parents (including myself) who would give their right arm to be able to afford a nanny, butler, or whatever! what is she trying to prove? i dont believe that at all. it could be somewhat believeable if ahe didnt have twins. and didnt i see them out and about? who was watching the kiddies then? :roll:

  22. fee says:

    What a load of shit…….. JLo up to her precious elbows with poop & vomit from 2 babies……not likely

  23. Jack Mehoff says:

    Jenny from da Block is one ugly beyotch. I am pretty sure I saw her making my bed in my hotel room when I was returning from the pool at the Holidome.

  24. daisfly says:

    I call shenanigans.

    That woman can’t wipe her ass on her own. The HELL she’s gonna wipe someone ELSE’S ass by herself.

  25. Tracey says:

    What a liar Mark is, no one can run a mansion, hetic lifestyle/careers and twins without a Nanny/helper/cleaner or a chef!

    They are trying to make out they are in a same simply 2 bedroom apartment like normal folks BOLLOCKS!

    I can believe he gets up at night (now and then) and Jlo does her bit, but they would have PLENTY of paid for help about!

  26. Predatory Cougar says:

    I really wish Skeletor could get He-Man back to work. I miss that show!

  27. lola lola says:

    These two are total liars. Then who is with the babies when they go out—and they do go out. They also claimed not to sue fertility drugs. What is wrong with admitting they took fertility drugs? No shame in them!!!

  28. nickers says:

    I actually believe these two. JLo has wanted babies for such a long time, that i’d be surprised if she didn’t want to be heavily involved in their care. I’m sure this must be a short bonding time before they hire the next nanny though.. As a mother of newborn twins, I can confirm that taking care of them is a non-stop full-time job for one person. If you want to get anything else done you need help. ie: at least one nanny.

    Also…. Even though jlo may have tons of money at her disposal.. no one can take away the discomfort and pain associated with carrying twins. Good for her for getting through her pregnancy with a smile on her face.

  29. ayatolla_of_rocken_rolla says:

    they have got to be the ugliest couple in hollywood. JL looks like a tranny and MA looks like a chemo patient. They are gross to look at!

  30. Yeah right says:

    I think it is jus a marketing stunt due to her new reality show ,i mine come on she could mention that they’re families help theme out whenever it is really needed ,nodoby can totally manage this even with billions ,as somebody in there already says who take care off the kids when they are both out ,i mean i don’t see any baby’s around rolling with theme,all bullshit but hey at least the babies looks so slick and rich for they’re aged….

  31. sarah says:

    What a lie!!! Their nanny abrubtly quit, because I’m sure Jlo is impossible. That’s why that Latin trailer trash has confidentiality clauses written into every employee contract! If you saw the new baby photos in People magazine, you’d know that it’s quite gauche over-done extravagance for two former Bronx people!

  32. Nan says:

    I hate to say this but…Jennifer cannot wear her hair back like that. You can really make out her features which are not that great. The poor choice of makeup isn’t helping.

  33. Zulu says:

    Hey JHo: Why would you want to bring that bad karma on your kids by wearing fur? Remember, you get what you put out into the world.

  34. delois says:

    I agree with everyone else!
    Baloney, at 1st she was in no rush to return to work, and all of a sudden she has 3 movies lined up and she is in a hurry! I think she was saying she was not in no rush in case no offers came her way…………..

  35. Lucas C says:

    Did Marc Anthony quit smoking since having his twins?
