"I have to see them because if I don't see them and they don't see me, then it's not happiness," Lopez explained. "Like, this morning I had to work out, then I sit down and I have lunch with them before I come over here and then I go, 'You know what? Since we're shooting all the way through, I'll have the kids come over at 6:30. They can bring me dinner because we had some leftovers.' Every day is like that!"
