Jennifer Lopez wants her 6-year-old twin children Max and Emme to be aware of their privileged upringing so they will be humble beings. 

They’re growing up so differently than me,” Lopez told at the Sirius XM Town Hall segment in New York City on Thursday (July 19).

For the Jenny From the Block singer, this is important because her own upbringing was so modest.

“I grew up in The Bronx – we shared a bed until we were 16 and it was so different. [Emme] and [Max] have their own rooms; we live in a big house. When we go to grandma’s house they’re like, ‘Grandma’s house is small.’ It occurs to them that this is different, so my whole thing is about teaching them to be aware of the world and realizing that we are in a position now that we can help other people, ” she revealed.

Meanwhile, her children are “just perfect” in her eyes.

“They’re loving and happy and healthy, thank God,” she shares. “And they love to jump around and have fun.”
