Maybe it doesn't run in the family? Jennifer Lopez may be a big star but she doesn't necessarily expect her children's names to be highlighting a marquee.

"They love dancing and they love music," she told Us Weekly of children Max and Emme, both 5. "They love to sing. But I don't know if they'll be performers. I could see them being artists, but I don't know if they'll be performers. They're still little though. We'll see!"

Whatever the future holds for her twins is unknown, but they got a good look at their mother's past recently, when they took a tour of the Bronx -- the New York borough where she grew up.

"It was crazy," J. Lo said. "That I even have kids now, that I'm walking them through there, it all feels so surreal."

"But it was great. I told them, 'This is the best place in the world to me,' and they just kind of looked around like, 'Why this place?' But that's just what it is, it's that place where your dreams began."

It was also on that tour that J. Lo was let in on a family secret, one she never knew. After Jennifer told her mom that she was dropping out of school to become a performer, her devastated mother decided to start spying on her.

"It was funny to hear when she said that she came and watched me [dance] without me knowing," Jennifer Lopez continued, smiling. "That was a reveal! I was like, 'Oh, wow, of course she did!' Because I would do the same thing, now that I'm a mom! If my 17, 18-year-old Emme decided, 'I'm moving out of the house and I want to become a dancer,' of course I would go watch her."
