Jennifer Lopez has been praised for introducing her child, Emme, using gender-neutral pronouns.
Emme, who J.Lo shares with her ex Marc Anthony alongside their twin brother Max, is also a singer in their own right and has even taken to their stage along with their famous mother.
They first showed off their joint vocal prowess by duetting the song ‘Limitless’ during the It’s My Party tour in 2019, and Emme once again joined their mother on stage at the 2020 Super Bowl, which has been heavily featured in Jennifer Lopez’s new Netflix documentary, Halftime.
And in one of her latest duets over the weekend at the LA Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond Gala in LA, J.Lo introduced Emme to the stage, saying: “The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this.”
“I ask them to sing with me all the time, but they won’t. So this is a very special occasion. They are very, very busy. Booked. And pricey! It costs me when they come out,” J.Lo joked.
Singer/actress/dancer J.Lo sweetly continued: “But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time. So if you will indulge me.”
Emem then came out on stage with a bedazzled rainbow microphone and began singing Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years”, Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA,” and the intro of “Let’s Get Loud.”
J.Lo later tweeted some cute snaps of the pair performing, captioned, “Last night …”
Fans commended J.Lo for respecting her child’s pronouns, with one person tweeting: “JLo models respectful parenting to a gigantic audience. It’s not hard to support your kids,” and another adding, “omg just saw a a video of JLo embracing Emmes they/them pronouns and them singing with a rainbow mic and I’m crying [sic].”
