 J.Lo Sets The Record Straight About Adoption

Is the “American Idol" judge really thinking about more babies?

According to Jennifer Lopez, her words got a little twisted in an interview she gave about adoption. Today, the mother of two set the record straight on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

"I know I'm being misquoted in the press a lot," Lopez told Ellen. "[They say that] I want to adopt and I had depression when I had babies -- none of that's true."

In the film What To Expect When You’re Expecting, Lopez plays Holly, a mother who adopts a child from abroad. In real life, she shares two biological twins Emme and Max with estranged husband Marc Anthony.

The interview that spawned the confusion was printed in The Daily Mirror who might have made it seem like Lopez was considering adopting more children with her new love interest Casper Smart.

Lopez made it clear on “Ellen” that she actually had not considered the idea of adoption from the start, but she was not planning on adding more children to her family anytime soon.


"You can give them a home and raise them as your own. . .” Lopez continued about the role. “Through the character I came to understand how people do it, because before I never really thought about it."

Lopez does plan on taking her kids along for her summer world tour with Enrique Iglesias. E! news reported that she already filed paperwork for a judge to grant permission for her to take the children out of California state.

At a press conference about the tour J.Lo said, “[The kids] will be on the bus with me and it will be a learning experience for the both of us.”

This will be the first time she has ever taken her children on the road and she's a little nervous about how it will go.

“There's always Grandma's house if they get really tired and stir crazy,” she said.

J.Lo and Iglesias' tour kicks off July 14 in Montreal. What To Expect When You’re Expecting hits theaters everywhere on May 18.
