How many children does Jennifer Lopez have and what are their names?
JENNIFER Lopez is best known as a singing sensation and actress from the Bronx.
The 51-year-old – nicknamed JLo -is also a mom to twins.
How many children does Jennifer Lopez have?
Lopez has two children with former partner Marc Anthony.
She gave birth to twins Emme Maribel Muniz and Maximilian David Muniz, on February 22, 2008, in Long Island.
Pictures of Lopez and the twins were shared in an issue of People in March 2008 for a reported $6million.
Just three years later, the couple announced their split and divorced.
Emme Maribel Muniz
Emme is now 13 years old and is following in her mom's footsteps as a singer.
She surprised Super Bowl audiences by singing alongside her pop star mom at the halftime show in 2020.
Emme sang a rendition of JLo's hit Let's Get Loud, backed by a choir of other young girls.
The two then sang Bruce Springsteen's classic Born in the USA.
During JLo's 2019 It’s My Party Tour, Emme also joined her mom on stage for a performance of the 51-year-old’s song, Limitless, from the Second Act movie soundtrack.
Maximilian David Muniz
Emme's twin Maximilian hasn't taken to the spotlight quite like his sister.
He has, however, also taken a liking to the arts and a video of him singing Riptide by Vance Joy was shared on Lopez's Instagram.
Max, as Lopez calls him, is also believed to be taking piano and voice lessons.
Does she have any stepchildren?
After splitting with the twin's dad Marc Antony, Lopez got engaged to former MLB star Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has two children, Natasha and Ella, whom he shares with his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
Although Lopez was slated to be a new step-mom to the two, the couple called off their engagement in April 2021.
"We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," they said in a statement.
Following their split, the former MLB star faced cheating allegations involving MLBSouthern Charm’s Madison LeCroy.
Soon after the JLo and A-Rod parted ways, the songstress rekindled her romance with ex Ben Affleck.
The A-list actor is a father of three kids — Violet, Serafina, and Samuel — whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
The pair had been seen with all five of their children together in recent months after relighting their flame.
Nearly a year after breaking things off with A-Rod, Lopez announced she and Affleck are engaged for the second time.
Who are JLo's exes?
Lopez was briefly married to Cuban waiter Ojani Noa.
The pair wed on February 22, 1997, but split less than a year later.
Since then, Lopez has endured legal challenges regarding her relationship with Noa, including in 2006 when she sued to prevent him from publishing a book about their marriage.
While working on her debut album On The 6, Lopez began dating record producer and rapper Sean Combs.
In December 1999, the pair were arrested along with two others following a shooting outside a club in Times Square.
Lopez was quickly exonerated and had nothing to do with the incident.
Combs was charged with four weapons-related charges but was found not guilty.
After splitting with Combs, Lopez began to date former backup dancer Cris Judd.
They wed on September 29, 2001.
But this too was a brief marriage, as they divorced less than a year later in June 2002, citing irreconcilable differences.
Just months after divorcing Judd, Lopez became engaged to actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck in November 2002.
They were dubbed "Bennifer" and quickly became a prominent super couple.
The pair were due to get married in September 2003 but postponed the wedding indefinitely just a day before the ceremony.
Lopez and Affleck then split in January 2004.
Nearly 20 years after their breakup, the pair sparked dating rumors in May 2021.
They confirmed they rekindled their romance with a loved-up photo shared on Instagram in July 2021.
After months of dating, JLo confirmed the pair got engaged for the second time in her newsletter email shared with fans on Friday, April 9, 2022.
She teased the big announcement with a video shared on Twitter, stating in the clip, "So I have a really exciting and special story to share…"
Not long before Lopez shared her big news, she gushes about her rekindled romance to PEOPLE.
"We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things."
Following her heartbreak with Ben Affleck, Lopez started a relationship with her longtime friend, singer Marc Anthony.
She married Anthony in June 2004, and on November 7, 2007, during the final night of their co-headlining tour, the couple announced they were expecting their first child.
Lopez gave birth to twins Emme and Maximilian in February 2008.
But three years later, in July 2011, the couple announced their split and filed for divorce in April 2012.
Their divorce was finalized in 2014, with Lopez retaining primary custody of the twins.
