In an effort to answer questions she'd never been asked by traditional reporters, Lopez came up with the idea for "Twin Talk: Ask Me Anything with Emme + Max," and turned to her 11-year-old twins for some questions about her life.
"I've been interviewed maybe ten thousand-million-bajillion times in my life, and I mostly get asked the same questions. So I decided that it would be fun if I let Emme and Max," Lopez explains, introducing the concept for the very special Q&A session.
Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Max comes out strong with a first question that really put his mom on the spot: "What was the most trouble you got in when you were my age?"
"I used to get in trouble all the time," Lopez says, admitting that she used to "sneak out of the house" by climbing out her second-story bedroom window.
Then it's Emme's turn to throw her mom an unexpected curveball, asking, "Am I your favorite?"
"What!?" Lopez says, surprised by the question. "I don't have a favorite. I don't believe in favorites. I could never think of one of you more than the other. I love you both so much."
Lopez also gets candid about some of the more challenging and surprising aspects of being a parent when Max asks if being a mom is different than she expected.
"You cannot imagine what it’s like to be a mom until you are a mom," says Lopez, who shares her precocious progenies with ex-husband Marc Anthony. "I used to give my friends who have kids advice all the time, and they would look at me like I had three heads. And then, when I had you two, the minute I had you two, I literally apologized to all my friends."
Lopez also fields some personal questions about her love life, although not her current love life, when Max asks her if she remembers her first crush.
"I was in third grade, and I had a crush on a boy… he was very cute, and he had a big nose," Lopez shares, laughing. "He used to ride his bike down my street, and I was just in love with him."
"That doesn't mean that you guys should, you know, have crushes," the singer quickly adds. "We're OK without crushes for a while."
