Jennifer Lopez became a first-time mom last year when she and husband Marc Anthony welcomed twins, Max and Emme. Although the 39-year-old pop singer and actress would love to give the twins a sibling, she and Marc first have to get their relationship back on track. And – JLo doesn’t want to be a stay-at-home-mom!
A pal said, “Jennifer is determined to make it work with Marc.”
The friend added, “But these two have serious issues. Jennifer feels Marc is holding her career back, and she was sick of his social butterfly mentality while she stayed at home with the twins. There are times when she’s had it, and close to ending it.
“She’ll throw down her ring and say, ‘That’s it.’ But when Marc realizes he’s about to lose her, he comes right back to Mommy. She enhances his life – she’s a huge star and good for him, and he does love her. And really, all their fighting makes for some fiery passion in the bedroom.”
The insider continued, “She wants to make sure her marriage is secure before she has more kids. Jennifer needs to ascertain that Marc will assume his half of the parental responsibility.
“She will never give up the red carpet, and certainly doesn’t want to be barefoot and pregnant, locked down or locked up. She wants to give Max and Emme siblings, but she loves the attention of the spotlight. She does not want to be a stay-at-home mom.”
If these two are having issues in their marriage, they’d better hold off on having more kids. And being a stay-at-home-mom isn’t a bad gig!
