Jennifer Lopez , 46 year-old actress and singer, and mother to seven year-old twins, Max and Emme just might be the busiest mother in Hollywood this year.

The star covers the February 2016 issue of InStyle magazine and dishes on how she juggles her current projects in addition to parenting her twin children.

Although Lopez will not be returning as a judge on the fifteenth and final season of American Idols, she is the executive producer of a new cop show in which she also acts as a detective and mother, in addition to performing twenty concerts as part of her All I Have Las Vegas residency.

The February 2016 issue of the magazine dubs Lopez, “Wonder Woman” as the actress talks about balancing her work with her family and raising her young children.

"I am busy, and they know it," Lopez reveals about her children. "And they know part of their job is helping me get sleep. If I'm sleeping in, they're very quiet, like, 'Mommy needs to sleep! She worked late last night!' We're a team."

"Becoming a mom makes you stronger but also more gentle, especially with yourself—and that changes everything," she added. 

She admits in the interview that although her children go everywhere with her, her mother Guadalupe and sister, Lynda, also help to take care of them. Adding that she FaceTimes them at least once a day and takes a photo by their bedsides if they have slept before she gets back home, "so they know I was there."

The actress also opens up about her role in the new television series she is also executive-producing called, Shades of Blue. A cop drama in which her character, Harlee Santos, is a detective and mother who grew up in the singer's own real life hometown—the Bronx borough of New York City–and who is forced to help the FBI capture her shady boss after she is caught up in a federal anti-corruption probe.

"She's human," Lopez tells InStyle about her character "Most people think they're the good guy. We're trying to do the best we can, but we all do bad things sometimes, whether it's lying or cheating ourselves or other people."

The series will also star Ray Liotta and Drea de Matteo, and premieres on NBC on January 7, while the final season of American Idol debuts a day earlier on FOX.

Lopez's Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino will run from January 20 to February 9 and then from May 22 to June 12.
