Lopez : More kids would be a blessing

Jennifer Lopez says "it would be a blessing" to have more children.

The 42-year-old 'What To Expect When You're Expecting' star expressed her plans to have more children eventually at a press conference for her new film.

She said: "It would be a blessing for me. But right now I'm focused on doing it right with those two (twins Max and Emme)."

The singer and actress filed for divorce from her estranged husband Marc Anthony earlier this year and is currently dating 25-year-old backup dancer Caper Smart.

She likened her nine-month journey carrying twins Max and Emme to Brooklyn Decker's character in the new movie.

She said: "My pregnancy was like the Brooklyn Decker pregnancy. I was on tour until I was six and a half months pregnant. I didn't really blow up until I was, like, eight and a half months."

Lopez also revealed that adoption is an option for her after appearing in the upcoming motion picture.

She confessed: "Before the movie, I never really thought about adoption at all…II was so focused on having my own and it took me awhile to have my own.

"But after the film and during the making of the film, I held those two little Ethiopian twins and you fall in love instantly...It really occurred to me, I can see how somebody can do this."
