J-Lo wants to return to her Jenny From The Block roots. The native New Yorker hopes to leave LA for the Big Apple. Her primary motivation after the jump.
Her kids. J-Lo and husband, Marc Anthony, grew up in New York and would like for their children, Max and Emme, to have a similar upbringing.
Jennifer says about the move from their current Los Angeles location, “We think about taking them back to New York to go to school and have more of an upbringing there. That’s how Marc and I grew up. It’s something we’re talking about. I love L.A., but it’s a show business town. I just think of getting them into an environment with normal kids who have working parents who are not part of the business and just growing up like we did…
“Hard work is something I want them to understand. They are growing up differently than I grew up, they have things, they live in a bigger house where they don’t have to worry about eating or money or shoes like I did when I was little. I want to instill in them how lucky we are – we pray about that every night – and to be good, gracious people who have to work hard for what they want.”
