Jennifer Lopez believes she can “handle more” than most people.

The 43-year-old is mother to twins Max and Emme from her marriage to Marc Anthony.

The brunette beauty juggles parenthood with a successful career in the showbiz industry, but insists the busy lifestyle is a piece of cake for her.

"I'm a singer. I'm a dancer. I'm a performer. I'm an actress. That's what I'm supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person,” she explained to Harper’s Bazaar.

"I think I can just handle more than the average bear, you know?"

Since announcing her split from Marc in 2011, the American star has found love with 24-year-old boyfriend Casper Smart.

With a hectic schedule of touring and looking after her kids, Jennifer is grateful for the support he offers.

"He's fantastic; he's like my best friend. I can tell him everything, when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support,” she gushed.

Despite clearly being a tough cookie, there are times the star feels tired – particularly during her current world tour.

As well as Casper, the On the Floor singer relies on her mother Guadalupe for guidance.

"Last night I was so tired, and having to do a concert was daunting, you know?" she confessed. "But Mom just said, 'Close your eyes,' and she held my hand the entire way over."
