"I love a good nine or 10 hours, but I can never get that," the mother-of-two told Us Weekly. "So seven or eight is mandatory. [If I don't get it] I just don't feel right. I start feeling crazy, I get emotional and I feel tired all the time."

The superstar singer also revealed that she has two personal trainers, one on each coast.

"When I am in New York I work out with David Kirsch – he's an amazing trainer," she explained. "When I'm in L.A, I work with Tracy Anderson. I like the balance that they both give me. They have two totally different approaches. I like switching it up with my body."

"We eat a lot of green vegetables, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, broccoli and kale," she revealed, speaking of what she and her two children Emme and Max often eat.

She added: "I love to cook a lot of stuff, I love cooking Puerto Rican food because that's what I grew up on."

Skincare is equally important for the star, who often has fans coveting her flawless complexion which she flaunts both on and off the red carpet. "I don't drink or smoke or have caffeine," she admitted. "That really wrecks your skin as you get older."

"I am rarely in the sun, but if I am, I wear a lot of sunscreen," she later continued. "I've never been one to take a lot of sun, which is why my skin has maintained itself."

The Jenny From the Block singer also revealed she meditates every day to help juggle all her projects. She practices 20 minutes a day. '"'m always looking for things that keep me grounded," she said.

Often hailed as one of the most beautiful women in the world, the mother-of-two said she doesn't want women written off at a "certain moment in our lives."

The New York star recently spoke out about her journey to self love, saying she's no longer waiting for her Prince Charming.

"As girls, I think we are taught from a very young age that someone else is going to bring us our happiness," she told InStyle Magazine.

"I was waiting for Prince Charming. Everybody I met was going to be the guy I was going to spend my life with. And then you realize, 'I'm strong' I'm my own keeper, my own saviour.

"That's been the journey for me."
