There is always a question over who will be the surprise guest during the Super Bowl halftime shows, and this year it was someone very special to halftime performer Jennifer Lopez!
Jennifer Lopez’s daughter, Emme Maribel, performed with her in the Super Bowl LIV halftime show at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, February 2, during Lopez’s 10-minute set alongside Shakira.
The 11-year-old took to the stage to sing her mother’s hit “Let’s Get Loud” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.,” showing off her angelic vocals alongside some other young performers.
Throughout the rehearsals and preparations for the big halftime show, Lopez documented several special moments with her children – whom she co-parents with ex-husband Marc Anthony – both on and off the stage.
Emme, as well as her fiancé Alex Rodriquez’s kids Natasha and Ella, attended several practices with the singer, who has shared many adorable interactions on social media. Also, while away from work, Lopez has made sure to spend time with her entire family, which also includes Emme’s twin Max.
“Break from rehearsal for homework and snuggle time,” Lopez captioned her Instagram post in January, alongside a photo of her supervising her twins doing their homework while in bed.
In May 2019, Lopez gushed about her daughter in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“She’s got her daddy’s voice. She’s amazing,” Lopez said of her 11-year-old daughter. “It’s natural. Emme could always sing. I remember when she was in the crib, when she was a baby, she used to be humming, like, really humming to herself. And Marc would say, ‘She’s singing, it feels good to her, it feels good to her soul and to her body,’ because he was like that. I was like, ‘You think she’s singing?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ And he was right, and she’s always, since she was little, she could always sing.”
