Jennifer Lopez Talks ‘PTSD’ Before Ben Affleck Wedding, Embracing ‘Bennifer’ Nickname on ‘Kimmel&rsquo…
“How do I say this? I put my best foot forward as much as I can,” the superstar — who has two children of her own, as well as husband Ben Affleck’s three children from his marriage to Jennifer Garner — told People on the red carpet. “I’m not one to share my angst. I don’t feel like that’s my life as a performer. You always show the best of you. But I’m a human being like everybody else, and I suffer in silence at times.”
The “Luh You Papi” singer added that a commitment to getting vulnerable has played into the creation of her upcoming album, This Is Me … Now, sequel of sorts to 2002’s This Is Me… Then. “I have an album coming out,” she said. “And I’ve been thinking a lot about that — like, what parts of myself do I share with my audience?

As for her blended family, she told Extra that things are going well. “We have five beautiful, beautiful children,” the star said. “We were just kind of thinking about what our lives have become and just feeling so blessed and grateful for where we wound up in our lives.”
