JENNIFER Lopez has revealed she is the strict parent in her household.

The singer-and-actress insists husband Marc Anthony is like "mush" when it comes to disciplining their two-year-old twins Max and Emme.

The 41-year-old star explained: "He's a passionate person, and he's the same way with his kids, and I love it. When it comes to all his kids he's mush, whatever they want."

Marc also has two sons, Cristian and Ryan, from his relationship with ex-wife Dayanara Torres.

She explained to America's Glamour magazine: "I'm the one who keeps everybody on schedule, like, 'Got to go to bed at this time, got to eat something.' I was talking about this with somebody - they asked, 'Do you still love working?' I said, 'I just do it quicker.' I don't have all the time in the world anymore."

Although Jennifer always planned to go back to work after having her twins, she now feels guilty when she leaves them.

She said: "In my mind I first felt like, 'Oh, I'll be back to work right after the babies are born.' But then you don't want to. Even now, it's very difficult for me to leave them in the morning. It just tortures me. I'm like, 'It's been hours; are they wondering where I am? Do they know that I love them so much and I'm thinking only about them?' "
