Jennifer Lopez DOESN'T Have Nannies! Only Her Family Helps With The Twins!

The newly single mom says she can’t stand to be away from her kids, Max and Emme, for more than 24 hours and could NEVER leave them at home with nannies. Are you surprised, HollyMoms?

For being such a busy lady — she’s a singer, an actress, a fashion designer and a judge on American Idolnewly single mom-of-twins Jennifer Lopez reveals she’s not into the whole nanny thing. So how does she do it?

J.Lo, who recently filed for divorce from her husband Marc Anthony, admits in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine that she did employ caretakers for a while, but that “it wasn’t for me.”

So now, the single mom, who doesn’t like to be away from her 3-year-old twins Max and Emme for more than 24 hours, has family members look after her kids — her mother, Guadalupe Lopez, her cousin Tiana Rios and her best friend from childhood, Arlene Rodriguez.

And although J.Lo has a permanent residence in Los Angeles, she is planning on moving back to her hometown of New York to raise her babies. Why? She wants them to go to school in the Big Apple!

“I liked my upbringing there and it gave me incentive,” she tells Vanity Fair. “Just the street smarts and the savvy.”

And even though Marc was supposed to be apart of that plan to move to NYC, Jennifer will have to do it on her own — although no doubt the father of her children will follow her to wherever she goes.

“This was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to face,” J.Lo explains about her divorce. “I really wanted this family to work.”

So sad for J.Lo’s twins. We hope the family is doing OK.
