The duo led a children’s chorus for a fun rendition of Lopez’s 1999 hit “Let’s Get Loud,” and the high-energy performance led us to believe that Emme definitely got her proper dose of entertainment genes from her musical parents, J.Lo and Marc Anthony.
In honor of Emme’s big Super Bowl moment, we’ve compiled five things to know about the future superstar.
She’s just 11 years old.
With all her confidence and swag, it’s hard to believe that Emme Maribel Muniz is just a pre-teen! She was born Feb. 22, 2008, in Long Island, New York. Her father is, of course, Latin star Marc Anthony, who was married to Lopez from 2004 to 2014.
She has a twin brother.
Emme shared the womb with her twin brother, Max. Back in April, Lopez uploaded a video to her YouTube channel in which the duo interview their mom. The clip shows off the twins’ sweet and bubbly personalities, and Lopez commended Emme for her joyful demeanor, her artistic qualities and her amazing singing voice.
Her nickname is “Lulu.”
Moms always have cute nicknames for their kids, and Emme’s is Lulu. In a Super Bowl rehearsal photo that J.Lo shared to Instagram on Wednesday, Emme sweetly rests her head on her mom’s knee as they take a break from dancing. “I love when Lulu visits me at rehearsals….,” Lopez wrote in the caption, revealing her daughter’s nickname. Little did we know at the time, Lulu would be taking the stage too!
She appeared in her mom’s “Limitless” music video.
In the powerful video for the uplifting song from the Second Act soundtrack, Emme plays a younger version of her mother. They are seen separately in an ill-fitting suit as they climb up a hill against all obstacles.
Lopez later said on Good Morning America that “Emme is my favorite thing about the video.” She described her daughter’s role as “the little girl inside of all of us that’s always fighting,” in the midst of “an army of women causing a storm of change.”
She is an amazing singer.
OK, we already knew this one after the halftime show, but did you know Emme performed with her mom throughout her It’s My Party Tour too? The mini-J.Lo would hop onstage with her mother at every stop to perform “Limitless.”
In a behind-the-scenes tour video uploaded to Lopez’s YouTube channel, we see Emme preparing for the performance with vocal lessons, rehearsals, makeup and wardrobe. “When I was little, I used to be really shy singing in front of people, but not anymore,” she says in the clip.
“I like being up on the stage, and the dancers are all behind me,” she continues, “Because, every show, I look in a different direction to see who’s behind me. My favorite person to see is my mom.”
