On the Floor singer Jennifer Lopez has admitted that her new TV show was inspired by her own "non-traditional family."

The 43-year-old mum-of-two is producing The Fosters for ABC, which features a same-sex couple raising adopted, biological and foster children.

Speaking to ABC News, Jennifer explained that she has taken inspiration for the show from her own life experiences.

She said: ''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.''

Jennifer, who has Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, further explained that her children are her top priority in life, adding: ''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.''
