Jennifer Lopez may be a busy lady, but even her twins Max and Emme have to schedule some time with their mother! Speaking about her nine-year-old children on the American chat show The Real, the 47-year-old revealed how her little son asked her to pencil in some time with her. "You know, they're always first," she explained. "When you put them first, then everybody else understands the hierarchy. My son said to me this week, he goes, "Mum, I'd like to schedule... a picnic with you this week cause I know you've been, you know, working hard."

Jennifer, who shares her two children with ex-husband Marc Anthony, went on to add: "He was with me in New York, but still, he was like 'Um I'd like to schedule a picnic for next Friday because we need more quality time.' And I was like, 'Okay baby.'" Jennifer and Marc welcomed their twins in February 2008. They started dating Marc in 2004 shortly after she split from Hollywood actor Ben Affleck. In 2011, the former couple announced the end of their ten-year marriage, although the divorce was not finalised until June 2014.

Last week, the singer opened up on the Today Show where she told the audience that she didn't think she would ever become a mother. She said: "I didn't have kids till later. I almost thought it wasn't going to happen for me. I'm very aware I was blessed with that. It could have been something different." The star continued: "They just made my life so much better,' she said as she became emotional. 'I'm forever grateful that. I don't take it for granted one day." Meanwhile, Jennifer is busy recording a new Spanish-language album and is preparing to star in the next NBC musical Bye Bye Birdie Live as well as her Las Vegas show, All I Have.
