It’s no wonder Jennifer Lopez is known as one of the hardest working women in show business: the triple-threat diva kept on strutting her stuff on tour, rocking out in high fashion designs, months into her unannounced pregnancy, when most women would’ve called it quits.


But the road to pregnancy wasn’t easy, Jennifer reveals in the fashion-packed September issue of Elle magazine.


“We knew nothing was wrong with either one of us—I had been checked, and he had kids already," Jennifer tells Elle of her and husband Marc Anthony‘s struggle to conceive. "I knew Something’s not ready here, in my head or in my life, and when it is, I know it’s going to happen.” 


When it did happen, she says she says her babies let her know.


“I was sitting down doing hair and makeup and I felt a flutter," Jennifer says. "The weirdest little… flourish. My makeup artist said ‘What’s the matter?’ I didn’t say anything, but in my head, I was like, I have life inside me!”

The life inside her was fraternal twins Emme and Max, born in February. A scant two weeks later, the new family appeared in a photo shoot together.


“I was like, How am I going to rock this moment of my life?…" she says of the book of photos. "I felt very womanly. Marc was in a dream. He loved it.”
