Due to her fame, Jennifer Lopez recently talked about the guilt she feels about her teenage twins’ lives in the public eye.
The award-winning singer disclosed that her fame has prevented her twin daughters from having a normal childhood life.
In an interview with a newspaper, the ‘Mother’ star shared that she encounters culpability over Emme and Maximilian’s lives in the public eye. She went on to say that being the child of famous parents has its advantages and disadvantages.
During the recent interview, Jennifer said,
“I think being the child of famous parents is not something many people can understand, and I feel for [my kids] for that because they didn’t choose that. [Others are] not seeing them for who they are. And I think that has to be a really hard thing for them. So I would love to be able to protect them from that.”
She also spoke about how strangers were judging her ex-husband Marc Anthony’s kids.
“Everybody has to deal with being bullied. It doesn’t matter who you are, you can get bullied. But … they know that there’s a lens on them, and that’s hard. The pain is necessary. The pain is actually good. The pain kind of makes you feel a little bit like a warrior when you get through it.”
Jennifer gave birth to her twins in 2008 with Marc Anthony, six years before going their ways. After that, in 2022, she got married to Ben Affleck, with whom she had three children: Samuel, 11, Seraphina, 14, and Violet, 17.
Talking about his parenting skills, Lopez said, “He’s an amazing dad. He is honestly the best dad I’ve ever seen.”
