Jennifer Lopez and her fiancé Adam Rodriguez have managed to find an upside to being in lockdown- family dinner every night!

Speaking to PEOPLE, Lopez admitted that pre-pandemic, the Lopez-Rodriguez family, which consists of Rodriguez's daughters Natasha, 15, and Ella, 12, and Lopez's 12-year-old twins Max and Emme, found it difficult to find time to eat together.

"That's been a huge blessing for us during this time, ″ said the Hustlers actress.

″Because Alex and I have both separately and now together lived a gypsy-type life, as both of our careers require tons of travel," she explained.

"The blessing of the quarantine for us was having dinner with the kids every night, for months and months."

The singer says she hopes they continue the tradition when things are 'back to normal', saying that these moments together, "are the ones that matter the most."

The Lopez-Rodriguez crew are clearly loving spending time together, with Lopez sharing some adorable family snaps earlier in the month, showing them celebrating Labour day together at home.

"Wishing everyone Peace and Love," tweeted Lopez. "Happy Labour Day!"


Rodriguez, 45, also shared the picture to Instagram captioning the cute family picture with "Tree cheers!"

"Wishing everyone a happy and healthy Labour Day, from our family to yours."


Wishing everyone Peace and Love ❤️ Happy Labor Day!

Lopez shares Max and Emme with her ex-husband, singer Marc Anthony, whom, she was married to from 2004 until 2014.

Talking to PEOPLE in 2018, the actress spoke about life with her blended family.

"I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away," she gushed.

"[It was] 'I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it's nice.'"
