Jennifer Lopez has revealed that starring in What To Expect When You're Expecting made her consider adopting a baby.

The singer and actress plays a woman who adopts a tot from Ethiopia in the film, which is based on the pregnancy manual of the same name.

And, according to the Daily Mirror, she revealed that she fell in love with the twins who played her on-screen baby.

J-Lo, who has her own twin toddlers Max and Emme, said: "It's funny because before the movie I never really thought about adoption. I just always wanted to have my own baby and I was so focused on that, and it took me a while to have my own.

"But after the film and during the making of the film when I held those two little Ethiopian twins, I fell in love instantly and I can see how somebody can do this, how it is so easy to embrace a child who has nothing."

The film also made her recall her own pregnancy.

She said: "I had an ideal pregnancy. I was on tour until I was six and a half months pregnant and I didn't really blow up until I was eight and a half months, with the nose, the whole thing, ugly, and the ankles and everything. But I wasn't really scared."
