Jennifer Lopez has hired a "manny" for her son.

The 45-year-old singer has enlisted the help of a male nanny for her six-year-old son Max because he was getting "aggressive" with her and she thought he might calm down if he had another man to spend some quality time with.

Speaking on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers', Jennifer - who also has Max's twin Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony - said: "The poor boy is surrounded by women 24 hours a day. One day I'm looking at him and he like jumps on me and hurts my neck.

"He's so aggressive, he's six and he's killing me. I'm like, 'What the? Baby, no'. And then the nanny is like, 'Ouch, OK Max.' He wants to roughhouse.

"He has this thing and I go, 'This poor kid he's just surrounded by women all day'. I was just thinking of my child and I got a manny, a nice guy to come in and like hang out with him and have fun."

Jennifer admitted she was recently wondering how her and Marc's twins dealt with their divorce, which was finalised in June 2014, and what they would think about the couple's failed marriage when they are older.

Speaking on 'The Wendy Williams Show', she said: "The world has changed so much; I was thinking about this the other day. But I was like, 'God, it's so different.'

"You didn't hear about divorces so much when you were little and now there's like families and you have to deal with other people's kids and then their partners, and old partners and new partners and it's like such a different world.

"Of course I was thinking about it because I was thinking about my children and how they have to deal with it and how they're gonna deal with all of it, how they're gonna grow up. What's gonna happen when they grow up?"
