Jennifer Lopez Uses Gender-Neutral Pronouns For Her Super Bowl Halftime Performer Child, Emme

Jennifer Lopez is a singer, dancer, actor, but perhaps her most important job is as a mother. Her children, Emme and Max Muñiz, have been in the spotlight since they were born in 2008. And now, as they enter their teenage years, they’re becoming more in touch with who they are.

Emme Muñiz has been performing with Jennifer Lopez for years

J. Lo gave birth to twins Emme and Max in 2008 when she was still married to her ex-husband, Marc Anthony.

Emme Muñiz is no stranger to the stage, performing with J. Lo multiple times. Emme joined J. Lo on stage to duet her song “Limitless” on her 2019 It’s My Party tour. The following year, Emme famously sang a mashup of “Let’s Get Loud” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In the USA” at the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show.

Jennifer Lopez introduced Emme Muñiz with gender-neutral pronouns

In June 2022, J. Lo and Emme reunited on stage for a performance at the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Blue Diamond Gala at Dodger Stadium.

Before introducing Emme, J. Lo took a second to speak about her stage-loving kid. “The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this,” she said, as seen in a TikTok video.

“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,” she joked. “But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time.”

“So if you will indulge me,” Lopez added, before Emme began singing Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” with a bedazzled rainbow microphone and sporting a short haircut.

Emme Muñiz doesn’t want to be a singer

Despite appearing on stage with their mom multiple times, Emme has no desire to become a singer later in life. “The Super Bowl was scary at first,” they admitted in a 2020 interview with Access Hollywood, “but while it was happening, it was all really nice. I got to perform with mom and one of my friends actually dancing with me.”

Still, Emme doesn’t have any dreams to be a performer. “When I get older, I don’t want to be a singer. It’s not something that I’d like to do as a profession,” they said honestly. “But, maybe one of my hobbies would be singing.”

When asked if they raid their mom’s wardrobe, Emme said that their mom’s style doesn’t line up their own. “I don’t usually go into her closet and try on her clothes, but the reason for that is because we have very different styles,” they said.

“I have many different aesthetics that I try to go for,” they added. “I don’t love wearing dresses a lot.”
