Jennifer Lopez is a doting mom-of-two and is currently going through a challenging time raising her 15-year-old twins - who are typical teenagers. 

Discussing her parenting journey during a candid interview on Live with Kelly and Mark this week - which can be watched in the video below - J-Lo revealed her children, Emme and Max, are both questioning everything she does right now, but that she feels that moms always have it harder when it comes to navigating the difficult parenting years. 

Remarking on her children's relationship with their father, Marc Anthony, the Jenny from the Block hitmaker told co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos: "I think it's particularly hard on mom's as they always kind of love dad.

"They are always kind of like dad's the best, and I'm just like, I was like that with my dad too and my mom told me and I'll say it to you right now on TV for everybody. I understand you so much more now!" 

J-Lo's mom, Guadalupe, was sitting in the audience watching her daughter's interview, and was smiling in agreement. 

Jennifer's twins have faced a lot of new starts over the last year, having moved from Miami, Florida, where they had been living with J-Lo and her ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, to LA, following Jennifer's rekindled romance with Ben Affleck

"He's just so in tune, he's such a brilliant guy anyway like he's so learned in so many things, and you can just tell when he's had his kids, he read every book and everything you could possibly learn about children, and he applies it and is present and that's all you can ask for."
