Jennifer Lopez wants children – but not too many!

In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Friday, the host asks the singer-actress-designer, "Do you want kids?"

"Yeah, I do," says Lopez, 37. "I absolutely do." She adds, "I have three step-kids."

(Lopez's husband, singer Marc Anthony, 38, is dad to sons Cristian, 5, and Ryan, 3, with ex-wife Dayanara Torres, and a daughter, Arianna, 12, from a previous relationship.)

When DeGeneres presses, "But you want to have more kids. Lots of kids," Lopez replies, "I don't know about a lot."

"Like, five, four?" DeGeneres wonders.

"One or two," Lopez says. "I'll take two at once, that would be great."

When DeGeneres points out, "Really, that's a lot of work," Lopez says, "Okay, but then you're done, and you got two."

"Well, [with] quadruplets you'd be done with four," says DeGeneres.

"Too many," says Lopez.

Last month, Lopez told PEOPLE en Español, "I come from a strong family, so of course I want to have one."

"But," she added, "I do have my own family: my immediate family, my husband and his children. I get to share in all of that. I am very lucky to have that."
