\"I haven\'t closed shop in that department,\" she said, \"I don\'t know, we have to see - we only have so many years that you can do that.\" Lopez already has two sons - four year old twins Max and Emme - with estranged husband Marc Anthony.

The American recently quit as a judge on reality show American Idol, to concentrate on her singing career and to spend time with her children.

\"I am a lover. I mean, at my core I feel like that\'s such a big part of my personality - and a part of why I do what I do - because I have so much to say on that subject,\" she explained, \"I feel like that\'s what my life is about.\"

The New York born star was married twice before her relationship with Anthony and was also engaged to Hollywood actor Ben Affleck before the two called it off.

\"I had my bumps in the road. But I do feel like I\'m lucky,\" she said, \"I\'ve been able to keep my feet on the ground through all of this whole thing, this career, and my personal life. All of that helps you grow.\"

\"And that\'s what we are doing here - we are living, we are learning, we are loving - boom. That\'s it,\" Lopez added.

The Perfect Man

Lopez is on the cover of the September issue of In Style and in the accompanying article, she spoke about her ideal man.

\"The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys... The hard part is that you never stop believing in love. You never stop. But that\'s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, ever give up,\" she explained.

She also spoke on the pressures of being a mother, particularly with her status as a global celebrity and demanding schedules.

\"Of course, I\'m the same as any parent. I feel the pressures of wanting to be a great parent and of wanting to do right by my children. I feel the pressure of knowing you can\'t be perfect even though you want to be. One thing I\'ve learned: Being a mom, or a dad, is the most important job there is. It doesn\'t matter who you are. You have to embrace it for everything that it is,\" she concluded.
