Singer/actress Jennifer Lopez is to co-ordinate and host a fundraising gala to help sick children - insisting her baby twins have inspired her to "do something for the world".
The star gave birth to Max and Emme in February (08), her first children with husband Marc Anthony, and she is convinced becoming a mother has made her want to do more charity work.
Lopez has now agreed to host the third annual Noche de Niños gala to benefit the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles. She will also be helping to co-ordinate the fundraising event which will feature performances from her husband.
And she puts her new-found dedication to good causes down to her kids.
She tells People En Espanol, "They inspire me to want to be better, to be a better person, to do something for the world, to set an example for them, to make them proud of me and to know that there's a certain way that you should live."
The Noche de Niños gala will be held on 11 October (08) at the Nokia Center in L.A. to benefit the 93,000 children treated annually at the hospital.
