Dayanara Torres gets gorgeous on the cover of Para Todos‘ September 2010 issue. The former Miss Universe - and former Mrs. Marc Anthony - opens up about her two sons, Cristian, 9, and Ryan, 7, and her hope to find love again.
On balancing work and motherhood: "You have to have the understanding that it’s not an easy thing to balance. My children are my priority, and I say no to certain projects no matter how important they are because of my responsibilities as a mother."
On loving motherhood: "I love my role as a mother, and being a mother of two boys especially. It makes me feel capable of anything, preparing breakfast, taking them to school, taking them to guitar lessons, piano, soccer, etc. It brings me so much satisfaction."
On her hope to find love again: "Of course, true love! I have been in various relationships over the years that ended up being with not the right person, so maybe I should enjoy this time I have of being single."
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony took their kids - 2-year-old twins Max and Emme - for some fun at a park in Los Angeles on Sunday (August 8).
The twins were joined by their half-brothers, Cristian, 9, and Ryan, 6 1/2, who are Marc's children with his ex wife, Dayanara Torres.
The kids played on the swings and took turns riding down the twisting slide. J.Lo even had her turn on the swing set while the nanny watched the kids. Afterward, the group stopped at a Johnny Rockets to grab some burgers.
Last weekend, more than 10,000 walked in the March of Dimes March for Babies to help fight preterm birth and give all babies a healthy start in life. Preterm birth is the number one cause of death for newborns in the United States, and babies who survive often face lifelong health problems.
Celebrity parents such as Nancy O'Dell, Dayanara Torres, Julie Bowen, Nicole Sullivan and Galen Gering marched for babies in this great cause on Saturday (April 24) in Los Angeles.
Nancy O'Dell, host of Saturday's fundraiser, told Celebrity Baby Scoop about the importance of the organization:
I am so honored to be hosting the March of Dimes March for Babies. I've been associated with the March of Dimes for over 10 years now and, as a mother, this organization means the world to me. Every year in California alone, more than 55,000 babies are born too soon and too small and it is the March of Dimes which helps so many of those babies go on to lead long and wonderful lives. All babies deserve a healthy start and I am honored to walk for all those precious little ones!"
Accompanied by family and friends, Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony were spotted at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. on Christmas Eve. J.Lo pushed the stroller while a family member carried Emme. Jennifer and Marc's fraternal twins turn 2 in February.
Anthony has a 15-year-old daughter Arianna with his NYPD police officer ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado. He is also dad to two sons with ex-wife, Dayanara Torres: Cristian, 8 1/2, and Ryan, 6.
