Jennifer Lopez gives major props to single moms, especially after playing one in her new romantic comedy, "The Back-Up Plan," opening in theaters April 23.
Looking stunning at Showest in Las Vegas, Jennifer tells "Extra," "I have a lot of respect for single moms. When you have a partner, it's still so challenging. I mean joyful and amazing, but challenging. So to do it all on your own is tough."
In the film, she plays a career woman who really wants to be a mom. "So she decides to have a baby on her own, and then, of course, as fate would have it, she meets somebody," the actress explains. That "somebody" is played by "Moonlight's" Alex O'Laughlin.
