What does Donald Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway and Jennifer Lopez have in common?
Both, this week, gave up high profile opportunities for their children.
Incoming US President Donald Trump offered Conway the job as his press secretary and she turned it down because she put her family first.
“Before I can accept that job, I have to recognize that I’m a mother of four children who are at very tender, very fraught ages — 12, 12, 8 and 7 — and I can’t just say, ‘Oh, but they’ll be OK,'” she told the New York Times. “Someone else will take care of them.”
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez canceled a New Year’s Eve performance to be with her kids and family too.
The super busy performer, dancer, actress and recording artist canceled a $1M gig at the Miami E11even, citing wanting “personal and family time,” her rep told People. Lopez, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum is mom to 8-year old twins Mad and Emme with husband Marc Anthony.
