London: Pop diva and actress Jennifer Lopez has credited her twins with helping save her marriage with singer Marc Anthony.

The 41-year-old star, who married Anthony in 2004 had once confessed facing problems in her marriage but admitted that her twins have made her realise that a third divorce was not to be considered, reported Contactmusic.

"The kids made Marc and I stronger... There have been tough times. Having kids made us both see that there`s a bigger picture. We still fight but we know that at the end of the day, we have these amazing children that need us. We promised each other never to go to bed angry," said Lopez.

The `Maid in Manhattan` star said the kid have also helped her overcome depression, sparked by overwork. Lopez suffered breakdown on the set of 2002 film `Enough` and recovered fully only when her kids were born in 2008.

"I was like, `I don`t want to talk, I don`t want to do anything`. My kids saved me."

Lopez also said that she suffered a new low after giving birth, but Anthony, 41, took care of her.

"I couldn`t get up fast enough to feed the babies and Marc was helping out a lot, and I was crying and crying, and going, `Oh, Papi, they`re going to know everybody more than me,`" adds Lopez.
