In a recent performance at the LA Dodgers Blue Diamond Gala over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez introduced her child Emme using gender-neutral pronouns. J-Lo shares 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. Emme actually joined Jennifer on stage in the past, duetting “Limitless” in her 2019 It’s My Party tour and performing alongside their mom at the 2020 Super Bowl.

“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,” the “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” singer joked. “But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time. So if you will indulge me.” Emme then began singing Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” with a bedazzled rainbow microphone.
