The singer — mom to twins Max and Emme — says she quietly tells her son and daughter how much she loves them and they eventually fall asleep.
“I sing little lullabies to them to help them go off to sleep some nights,” she said.
“But I like to whisper in their ear and that works even better. I have done that since they were tiny babies. I whisper to them how much I love them.”
Lopez, 40, recently revealed that she’s in no rush to get her music career back on track.
“I’m at a point in my life when I just don’t feel the need to put out anything unless I totally, absolutely feel it says what I want to say,” she said.
