J-Lo's twins have a close relationship with Alex, as well as his two daughters Natasha and Ella, who he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. 

The Jenny from the Block hitmaker will be supported by her family who she spoke about in a recent interview with People magazine, when she revealed how they had handled the coronavirus pandemic.

"The time is precious, and besides health, probably the most important thing that we have, so we're going to keep a lot of those things going," she said.

I realised that there's some things I could cut out and things I could do to give me more time with my family and my kids, which I think was a blessing."
