If there’s one thing Jennifer Lopez is better at than singing and acting, it’s being the doting mom of her twins, Emme and Max. The Hustlers star first became the proud mama of her adorable children when she and ex-husband Marc Anthony welcomed them on February 22, 2008.
Although Jen and the “Vivir Mi Vida” singer divorced in 2014 after marrying in 2004, the former couple have mastered coparenting. Over the years, Jennifer and Marc have introduced their children to their significant others and have even been spotted hanging out.
Not only are the “Jenny From the Block” singer’s kids super cute, but they’re also as talented as their famous mama. Jen proved her son and daughter take after her impressive performing chops as she previously shared a video of them singing and playing the ukulele.
“My heart can’t take it,” she captioned a clip of Emme and Max performing an acoustic cover of Vance Joy’s “Riptide” in September 2019. Following the end of their adorable rendition, Jen’s little man can be heard saying, “Let’s do that again. I liked it!”
The Second Act star may be super proud of her mini-me kids, but she’s also dedicated to being the best mother ever. In fact, she told Variety she actually almost passed on her iconic role in 2019’s Hustlers because she was heartbroken about having to spend so much time apart from Emme and Max.
“We were supposed to do it last summer, and I had worked so much,” she shared with the outlet in August 2019. “I was like, ‘I have to stay home with my kids and Alex.’”
Now that’s she older, Jen has learned a lot about parenting and is able to more comfortably juggle her Hollywood career while raising her youngsters. Looking back, the “On the Floor” songstress is thankful to have struck the right chord between her professional life and relationships.
“There were times in my life when my career was going great, and my personal life was going OK,” she told the outlet at the time. “And there were times my personal life was stable, but my career was not great. This is the first time where I have a really beautiful alignment between the two. I think Alex brought that for me. I love it. We have a beautiful life.”
Jennifer and Marc are friendly when it comes to coparenting their children and have both moved on to pursue other romantic relationships since their split. In the spring of 2021, the songstress reunited with former flame Ben Affleck to give their relationship another shot. Jennifer announced their engagement in April 2022 in her newsletter.
“It’s a beautiful outcome that this has happened in this way at this time in our lives where we can really appreciate and celebrate each other and respect each other,” she told People about their relationship the second time around in February 2022. “We always did, but we have even more of an appreciation because we know that life can take you in different directions.”
Marc also found love again with model Nadia Ferreira. The couple made their relationship Instagram official in March 2022. The former Miss Paraguay revealed that the “Vivir Mi Vida” singer popped the question with a gorgeous diamond sparkler that she showed off on Instagram in May 2022.
