Jennifer Lopez, the singer, actress, and fashion icon, has recently become a mother to twins, Emme and Max. The babies are the first children for 38-year-old Lopez and the fourth for her third husband, actor and singer Marc Anthony, 39, who wed in 2004.
When asked how she conceived her children, Lopez was quick to answer: “the old-fashioned way.” This response has been met with both amusement and admiration from fans and critics alike.
For Lopez, who has been married three times, the decision to conceive naturally was a conscious one. After having her first two marriages end in divorce, she wanted to make sure that her children were conceived in a loving and committed relationship.
Lopez and Anthony have been together since 2004 and have a strong bond. This bond was strengthened further when they welcomed their twins into the world in February 2008.
In addition to conceiving her children the old-fashioned way, Lopez has also taken a more natural approach to parenting. She has stated that she plans to breastfeed her twins and will not be using formula. She also plans to use cloth diapers and to use natural remedies when possible.
Lopez has also been vocal about the importance of taking time for herself and her family. She has said that she will not be returning to work until her children are at least six months old.
For Lopez, conceiving her children the old-fashioned way was a conscious decision. It was a decision that was made out of love and commitment to her relationship with Anthony and to her children. It is a decision that will no doubt be remembered and admired for years to come.
