Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez revealed her new TV show is inspired by her own non-traditional family

The 43-year-old singer is producing 'The Fosters', which features a same-sex couple raising adopted, biological and foster children, said she has taken some inspiration from her own situation, reported a newspaper.

"I am a non-traditional family. Me being a single mom, their dad doesn't live at home with them. They have three stepbrothers from two moms. That's not traditional. Do I want my children to feel weird about that? No I don't. So putting a show like this one to me is, look, there is no perfect (image of) what family is supposed to be," she said.

While Lopez, who is currently dating dancer Casper Smart, has three failed marriages behind her and she says the only thing that matters to her is that her children are healthy and loved.

"The show is about love and that's what I constantly remind myself of because I kind of let society get inside my head, 'Oh, it shouldn't be like this. I did this, I did that. I failed,' And it's like, no. They're happy, they're healthy, they're loved more than anything in the world and they're going to be fine. I want them to know that."
