Jennifer Lopez’s twins changed her life in the best way.

In an emotional interview with People magazine and Entertainment Weekly, the singer opened up about how her children, Max and Emme, gave her life new direction. “They just made me realize… what was real and what wasn’t real,” she said, while wiping away tears. “They just changed everything.” In fact, they’re basically the inspiration behind her song, “On the Floor.”

But that’s not all they inspired her to do. She credits her twins for inspiring her to be better personally. “I started asking more questions of myself of love, of what was right, of what was wrong,” the Shades of Blue star revealed. “I knew for their life to be great, I had to be great and I needed to fix some things and that is where the music came from.”

And boy have things changed for her. After separating from Marc Anthony, J.Lo. met her current boyfriend Casper Smart, she returned to American Idol as a judgeshe landed her own TV show, and in May 2015, she announced her Las Vegas residency.
