J Lo claims she spends every free moment with her twins

Jennifer Lopez is still working the “I’m a hands-on parent” shtick to death. She claims she didn’t have a nanny until very recently – and by most accounts that’s true. Because they kept quitting on her due to such bad working conditions that $9,000 a month couldn’t hold anyone. J-Lo downplays that little nugget of information in her recent glowing motherhood interview with People. She also claims to be actively involved in the twins’ day, and the nanny is just there to burp them or something.

“I did it for a long time but we started using a nanny a few weeks ago,” says Lopez, 39. “[Most days] I get up early with them. Then when the nanny comes, I can take a shower and give them their breakfast. She’s there to help me get things done.”

As for getting back to work, Lopez says she’ll take it a day at a time. “It’s gonna be a learning experience. How will I do both? I try to take breaks from work,” she tells PEOPLE. “I’ll do a little work with the choreographers and then come back. I try to spend every free moment with the babies.”

The mornings are her favorite time with the twins. “When they see you and have that big smile on their face – I live for that,” she says. “And when I put them to bed at night and they melt in your arms. I give them a bottle and wind it down. I say, ‘It’s time for beddy-bye.’ I hold them and sing a little song. By the time you know it, they are asleep.”

Lopez also did a lot of triathlon dropping. That’s like name dropping but with sports. J-Lo was supposedly pretty damn shocked that the media wasn’t covering her training with the same fervor with which they were following Michael Phelps’ gold medals. Which seems to be why she’s still talking about it. If J-Lo wants you to cover her story, you will cover her story. And consider yourself damn lucky to get to talk about her spandex-clad-long-distance-running ass.

Adding to her bliss: Lopez is perfectly happy with her post-baby body. “The triathlon really helped get me in better shape, and snapped me back into my body,” she says, referring to last weekend’s Nautica Malibu Triathlon. “I don’t weigh myself a lot. I still have 10 lbs., or so. [But] I don’t have any problems with it. I never felt I had to get rid of it.”

Asked how she stays so sane about her body image, she laughs: “We like to eat!” On a serious note, she adds, “I think you have to love yourself and indulge when you want to, as well as be happy and just have a healthy attitude towards it.”

Besides, she notes, “Marc loves the way I look!”

So basically this is just your standard issue Jennifer Lopez “My life is perfect/I am awesome” story that was part of her deal with People. Lopez also just became an aunt again. Her sister Lynda gave birth to a daughter on August 28th. I’m sorta surprised that J-Lo allowed Lynda to steal some of her baby attention so soon. I expected she’d put some moratorium on all family fertilizations for at least the next two years.

    Oh, weep, weep.

    Motherhood is SO difficult for the very rich.

  2. Orangejulius says:

    There’d be something wrong, I think,,if you didn’t want to spend every spare moment with them when they’re under a year old. That’s the magic time…it doesn’t get any better than that, at least for me. They’ll never be that close again – make the most of it.

  3. lola lola says:

    oh yeah, they just magically fall asleep just like in a fairytale. God, has this woman ever spent ANY time with newborns? What a load of crap!

  4. Kaiser says:

    Oh, please. J.Lo isn’t *that* bad. I mean, yeah, she’s sort of fake and craven and she’s a total diva. But would we expect anything less from her?

  5. sluggo says:

    “they just magically fall asleep just like in a fairytale”

    I guess it all depends on what she put in the bottles first.

  6. Val says:

    What I see is – she gives them the morning bottle, and the bedtime bottle and no interaction in between.

  7. daisy424 says:

    The dress is not flattering to her figure. But her make-up looks great.

    “It’s time for beddy-bye.’ I hold them and sing a little song. By the time you know it, they are asleep.”

    Yeah, right……

    “I’ll do a little work with the choreographers and then come back. I try to spend every free moment with the babies.”

    Not J Lo’s bigggest fran but she said she ‘Tries’ to spend every free moment with, she’s not actually saying she does as header says.

  9. Chris X says:

    She gives them a bottle and sings and they fall asleep – isn’t that what happened with Affleck?

  10. omar says:

    boy did ben pick the right jennifer to be the mother of his children. she’s SO involved and this one is so NOT involved.

    “J Lo claims she spends every free moment with her twins”

    She means her boobs, right?

  12. Granger says:

    Doesn’t anyone else think it’s funny that she talks so much about how much time she spends with her kids? It makes me think she really DOESN’T. I don’t know any other mom who toots her own horn like J-Lo.

    Anyway, regardless of whether or not she has a nanny, she needs to keep her mouth shut and stop trying to make it sound like she’s still Jenny From The Block. We all know it’s been years since she bought her own groceries, cooked her own meals, cleaned her own toilets, mopped her own floors, or run her own mundane daily errands, all while trying to spend quality time with your kids. It’s easy to spend every waking moment with them when you DON’T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO DO!!!!!!

  13. Codzilla says:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t believe for a minute that this self-absorbed woman doesn’t have a live-in nanny. No way in hell is she dragging herself out of bed every couple of hours to feed those babies like the rest of us did.

  14. Blanche says:

    JLo hunny, do me a favor, ‘K?

  15. Benny says:

    But what exactly is a “free” moment? Does it mean when she’s not at the spa, or at the gym, or at a restaurant, or meeting with people, or shopping, or laying by a pool — then, it is considered a “free moment”? If so, then, yes, I absolutely believe she spends every free moment with them.

  16. sluggo says:

    Chris X: “She gives them a bottle and sings and they fall asleep – isn’t that what happened with Affleck?”

    That gets a standing LOL! Excellent!

  17. Troll says:

    If she spends every free moment with her kids, how come they’re not with her in that photo taken on 9/14?

  18. Jeanne says:

    Big deal! So she’s spending every moment she can with her kids….Okay isn’t that what most of us mothers do? Why should she get kudos for that? Her career has been pretty much stalled the last few years anyway; she should have loads more free time. Maybe old Marc Anthony should be with Katie Holmes instead. They both have that sunglass wearing, les miserables look!

  19. vdantev says:

    By ‘spending every free moment with her twins’, she means constantly harassing her underpaid nanny from Paraguay.

  20. georgiagrl says:

    She’s a high maintenance phoney, who jets around to Marc’s “surprise “birthday party after the marathon, then to Saint Tropez. Hope those twins can buy themselves some fresh, non polluted air in 20 years cause Mama is helping to wreck the environment!
    Don’t think for a momment one of her assistants isn’t reading these blogs for her and telling her about what a non- mother she is precieved to be.
