"There weren't a lot of examples of thriving, really killing it in motherhood. It's different now with people who have already made it. Everyone knows that J-Lo has her twins, you know, and that's fantastic. She wasn't trying to make it and have her kids. She'd already made it. I'd like to be the other side of that story.
