Jennifer Lopez Reveals the Blessing COVID-19 Pandemic Brought to Her Blended Family

In a recent interview, multi-awarded artist Jennifer Lopez explained that the silver lining of the novel Coronavirus pandemic is the chance to spend time with her family.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, stayed at home most of last year, like everyone else. Despite this, she told TODAY she enjoyed her time at home with Alex Rodriguez, 45, and their blended family.

The actress is a doting mother to her 12-year-old twins, Emme and Max. On the other hand, the former professional baseball player is a proud father of two daughters, Natasha, 16, and Ella, 12.

'BLESSING IN DISGUISE'

Lopez said that traveling with her work means spending a lot of time away from her children, which is why having them home during the COVID-19 pandemic was such a treat.

The star mentioned how she was able to have dinner with her kids, put them to bed every night, and wake up with them in the mornings, which, for her, was kind of a blessing in disguise.

Lopez continued that she had learned a lot in the past year. Before the pandemic, she said she had been working too much and was not spending enough time on the things that matter in life.

The "Waiting For Tonight" singer, who had to postpone her wedding to Rodriguez, was forced to stay at home because of COVID-19 and realized how much she was missing out on.

Lopez and Rodriguez have succeeded in co-parenting their children while raising their blended family.

PERFECT EXAMPLE OF BLENDED FAMILY

Lopez and Rodriguez have redefined the term "blended family." Everyone has seen how easy it is for the couple to get along when they already have children from previous relationships.

Also, people realized how important it was for their children to meet their future partner. In 2017, Lopez and Rodriguez began dating and soon spent time getting to know each other's children.

STILL PRODUCTIVE

Lopez and Rodriguez have succeeded in co-parenting their children while raising their blended family. The couple is excited to make their family official as they prepare for a wedding.

Meanwhile, spending most of the time at home doesn't mean Lopez and her family haven't been productive. She released new music and will appear in the upcoming rom-com "Marry Me."

Lopez's daughter, Emme, also took the time to publish her first book, "Lord Help Me," which is inspired by her love of sloths and her prayer. The book is printed in both English and Spanish.

Moreover, Lopez won the WSJ's Innovators Award for pop culture innovator of the year. This was confirmed by PEOPLE last November. The award was given to her virtually by Maluma.
