Jennifer Lopez Reveals How Her Real Life Informs ABC Family’s The Fosters


Jennifer Lopez is looking at real life to inspire her latest project. The entertainment mogul recently chatted with ABC News about her “non-traditional family” and her new ABC Family soap The Fosters.  
  
Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony share 5-year-old twins Emme and Max. The twins also have three siblings from their father’s previous relationships.  Post divorce, Lopez has been dating her backup dancer and choreographer, Casper Smart. It's no wonder she wanted to serve as executive producer for a series about a multi-ethnic couple raising a mix of biological and adopted children! 

Said Lopez: 
  

So putting a show like this one to me is, look, there is no perfect [of] what family is supposed to be.  It’s about love and that’s what I constantly remind myself of because I kind of let society get inside my head, ‘Oh, it shouldn’t be like this.  I did this, I did that.  I failed.’  And it’s like, no. [My kids are] happy, they’re healthy, they’re loved more than anything in the world and they’re going to be fine. I want them to know that. 

 
The Fosters premieres Monday, June 3 at 9 pm EST on ABC Family.

    I have to give big props to Jennifer for bringing a series like this to the table.

    In addition, I love Sherri Saum and Teri Polo. Still remember them well from Sunset Beach and Northern Exposure.
