For a heartwarming mother-and-child duet during a performance at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Jennifer Lopez introduced one of her twins, 14-year-old Emme Muñiz, using gender-neutral pronouns.
Muñiz joined Lopez, 52, for a performance of Christina Perri’s A thousand years at the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond Gala on Thursday.
“The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this,” said Lopez. “I always ask them to sing with me, but they don’t. So this is a very special occasion.”
The pair previously performed together during Lopez’s halftime show of the 2020 Super Bowl.
Lopez called her child “my all-time favorite duet partner” and joked that Muñiz was “very, very busy, booked out and pricey.”
In a video of the performance shared on social media, Muñiz can be seen holding a rainbow microphone.
At one point during the song, Lopez — dressed in a mint-colored feathered outfit — got down on her knees as she passionately sang with her child.
Muñiz is the child of Lopez and her ex-husband and singer Marc Anthony. They have another child, Muñiz’s fraternal twin, Max.

After the performance, both Lopez and Anthony expressed their support and encouragement for their child online.
Lopez uploaded several photos of her and Muñiz during the event.
Anthony tweeted an older photo of Muñiz, writing, “Daddy is so proud of you.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Blue Diamond Gala has raised a record $3.6 million for the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF), which aims to improve education, health care, homelessness and social justice in the local environment.
