Jennifer plays Zoe, who after years of dating has decided waiting for the right one is taking far too long.  Determined to become a mother, she commits to a plan, makes an appointment and decides to go it alone.  On the day of her artificial insemination, Zoe meets Stan (Alex OLoughlin) a man with real possibilities.  Trying to nurture a budding relationship and hide the early signs of pregnancy becomes a comedy of errors for Zoe and creates confusing signals for Stan.  When Zoe nervously reveals the reason for her unpredictable behaviour, Stan commits fully and says hes in.

So that's the movie in a nutshell but I wanted to find out more about it from the star herself. So I went along to The Dorchester Hotel to catch-up with the star who unsurprisingly looked amazing.  I can also reveal, made no diva demands about my interview. In fact, she was seriously cool and generated so much star quality and energy, which is want you want from your Hollywood celebs. Have a listen to my chat with J-Lo- we talked about her new twins, eating bread and stew in the name of art and her plans for a new album

And Director of the movie Alan Poul talked to me about working with J-Lo and how she coped with Nuts - her canine co-star - before exclusively revealed to me how he managed to re-create the infamous underwater shot of J-Los bottom from the movie.
