Jennifer Lopez Says Having More Kids ‘Would Be a Blessing’

Theo Wargo/WireImage for Tommy Hilfiger(NEW YORK) -- Although Jennifer Lopez admits having more kids “would be a blessing” she told People magazine she’s “got [her] hands full” already with a career firing on all cylinders and 4-year-old twins Max and Emma.  Speaking about her kids to People, J-Lo said, “Every day … they just bring so much joy and happiness to your life, [and] they just bring you right back down the earth.”

As for being a single mom balancing her duties on American Idol, her show Q’Viva! The Chosen, and her upcoming film, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Lopez said, “There’s the guilt that comes along with it. You leave and they go, ‘Don’t go to work, Mommy!”

Lopez, 42, said no matter how busy she gets, she’ll always put her kids first. “That’s my philosophy,” she said. “So as long as that’s … working in the right way, then I can dedicate whatever time I need to dedicate to my career … You just do the best you can, and say no when you have to say no.”

Of course, Lopez doesn’t do it all alone.  “I have a lot of great people in my life who help … at work and at home,” she said.  “I have a great family -- so all together -- we do it. It takes a village.”

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The arrival of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s newborn daughter at a Manhattan hospital has inconvenienced a new dad who says the couple’s security team has prevented him from visiting his two prematurely-born twin girls.

Speaking with the New York Daily News, 38-year-old Neil Coulon of Brooklyn says the security team has repeatedly stopped him from visiting the neonatal intensive care unit at Lenox Hill Hospital.

A spokeswoman for the hospital told the Daily News she was unaware of any complaints regarding Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s security staff until the newspaper brought it to her attention.

The Daily News has reported that Bey and Jay paid the hospital 1.3 million dollars to seal off a wing of the hospital to assure their privacy. Their child, reportedly named Blue Ivy Carter, was born Saturday night.

No Post-Birth Beer for Mariah Carey

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey is quashing earlier reports that she had a beer after her twins Moroccan and Monroe were born last spring at a Los Angeles hospital.

The beer allegation prompted the involvement of California Child Protective Services, who, Carey said, investigated whether the babies were subject to “neglect.”

“It just doesn’t make any sense,” Carey told Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview airing on ABC’s 20/20 Friday.

Carey said that, at the time, the newborns — who are now six months old — were being cared for in the hospital’s neo-natal intensive care unit.

“The babies were in the most protective environment because it’s the NICU,” she said.

Carey said the beer story started with a suggestion by a nurse who brought the singer a beer, saying it would help improve lactation.

But, Carey said, “I didn’t even drink the beer.”

Watch Barbara Walters’ exclusive interview with Carey and husband Nick Cannon, plus see their babies’ faces for the first time, on ABC's "20/20" Friday at 10 p.m. ET.

Mariah Says She'll Do an Interview About the Twins 'Very Soon'

PRNewsFoto/Piaget, Lester Cohen(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have yet to release any official pictures of their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, and in a recent Google+ interview during which she answered questions from fans, Mariah explained why.  "We're trying to figure out a way to do it but it's a delicate situation," she said. "We want to share the pictures with the world because they're our children and we're very proud of them but we just have to be very aware of how we do it. It will probably be on the Internet as opposed to a tabloid or something!"

But just because we may not be seeing the babies anytime soon doesn't mean we won't hear about them.  Mariah said in the same interview, "The twins are great, they're so much fun. I will be talking about them in an interview soon..!"  She also added that life as a new mom is "very challenging," and said, "It's changed my outlook on life in so many ways. I really love my babies Roc+ Monroe so much it is indescribable."

Mariah also told fans she's "working on new music right now which I'm very excited about and I have other creative endeavors coming up as well."  She hinted that one of them may be the long-awaited Christmas movie on which she's been working for several years.

Mariah Carey Won't Be Investigated for Drinking While Breast Feeding

PRNewsFoto/Piaget, Lester Cohen(LOS ANGELES) -- After an anonymous phone call to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services was made after Mariah Carey was seen drinking a Guinness beer while breast feeding, TMZ reports that social workers have found no reason to launch further investigation into the singer and her care for her twins.

On Thursday, social workers conducted an interview with Carey in regards to the claim, during which Carey admitted that she consumed the drink because she was told by hospital staff that dark beer would assist her in lactating.

After wrapping up the interview, sources close to the DCFS told TMZ that officials agreed that there was no merit to the claim, and investigators are closing the case.

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Reveal Babies' Names

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their newly-born twins.

The boy's name is Moroccan Scott -- Scott is Nick's middle name, as well as his grandmother's maiden name. As for "Moroccan," Nick proposed to Mariah in the top tier of her New York City apartment, which is called "The Moroccan Room" because of its Moroccan-style decor. 

The girl's name is Monroe Cannon -- there's no middle name, Mariah's rep says, because Mariah doesn't have one.  The "Monroe" is after Marilyn Monroe, one of Mariah's heroes.  She famously purchased Marilyn Monroe's white piano a few years back.

Charlie Sheen Wants Full Custody of Kids

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen will personally attend a hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday in an attempt to get full custody of his twin boys, Bob and Max, according to TMZ.

Sheen's ex, Brooke Mueller, recently re-entered rehab after what the gossip site called last week's "crazy week of binging."  Sheen and his lawyer, Mark Gross, will argue that Mueller's relapse makes her unfit to care for the two-year-olds.  Ironically, they were previously taken from Sheen's custody by court order because of his recent erratic behavior.

Under the terms of their custody arrangement, the couple is required to take regular drug tests.  Mueller reportedly refused to take a test, which under the terms of the agreement is considered a fail.
