Jennifer Lopez’s personal life inspired her new show.

The 43-year-old singer is producing ‘The Fosters’ for ABC – which features a same-sex couple raising adopted, biological and foster children – and Jennifer, who has twins Max and Emme, five, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, admitted she has taken some inspiration from her own situation.

She told ABC News: “I am a non-traditional family. Me being a single mom, their dad doesn’t live at home with them. They have three stepbrothers from two moms…that’s not traditional. Do I want my children to feel weird about that? No I don’t. … So putting a show like this one to me is, look, there is no perfect (image of) what family is supposed to be.”

While Jennifer – who is currently dating dancer Casper Smart – has three failed marriages behind her, she says the only thing that matters to her is that her children are healthy and loved.

She explained: “The show is 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. They’re 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.” (Source: bangshowbiz.com)
