Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony

UPDATE: Despite TLC's press release suggesting otherwise, Lopez's personal publicist, Leslie Sloane, just issued the following "clarification": 

"The show that Jennifer Lopez is doing for TLC is a “docuseries” that follows the creation of a mother/child fragrance launch. It is not about her family and home life with her children."

So much for Out of Sight.

Jennifer Lopez has signed on to star in a reality show—or in press release vernacular, a "docuseries"—on TLC that will follow the performer as she balances her roles as multihyphenate career woman, wife to Marc Anthony and mommy to twins Emme and Max.

"I am excited to be part of the TLC family," J.Lo said in a statement today. "I'm looking forward to sharing this exciting journey together."

Jenny from the Block has certainly come a long way. To think how she was raised in the absence of a camera crew…

"Jennifer is unbelievably passionate about life and will be an incredible role model for our audience," TLC President Angela Shapiro-Mathes said.

Lopez will also serve as coexecutive producer of the as-yet untitled series. 

In its press materials, the Discovery Networks-owned TLC promises that the series, which is currently in preproduction, will "deliver a slice of [Lopez’s] life that audiences have never seen before, as she takes on her career and launches a new fragrance while trying to juggle her new responsibilities as a first-time mom."

No premiere date has been scheduled.

And Lopez and Anthony, who welcomed their new additions on Feb. 22 (and wouldn't even confirm they were expecting until mom looked ready to burst), are apparently not the only high-profile family types TLC has set its ambitious sights on.

During Discovery's upfront presentation today in New York, the network announced it is also developing a show with Live with Regis and Kelly cohost Kelly Ripa and her hubby, Mark Consuelos, who are both former soap stars.

"I’ve known Kelly and Mark since the first day each of them joined All My Children," Shapiro-Mathes said. "They reflect our audience, and the audience knows and loves them."
