Emme and Max are teenage twins, and Jennifer Lopez opened out about parenting them, admitting that they are “giving it” to her as a mom.
During the Today program segment on Wednesday, May 3, Lopez, 53, said, “They’re becoming adults.” “They are challenging everything in life.”
The “Jenny From the Block” singer said that her 15-year-old children, whom she has with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, are “looking at everything” from a new angle.
The Hustlers actress told cohost Hoda Kotb, “These kids have so much information, so much more than we had.” “They’re thinking and talking about things and about life in a different way than I did when I was 15 or 16 years old.”
Lopez, however, isn’t worried about her kids’ curiosities. “I think they’re gonna change the world,” she said. “And make it so much better, so much better than what we did.”
The Shades of Blue alum had Emme and Max in 2008 after marrying Anthony, 54, in June 2004. After seven years of marriage, the artists called it quits in 2011. Their divorce was finally finalized in 2014, and since then, they have settled into a routine as co-parents.

During a March 2017 appearance on Live With Kelly, Lopez mentioned that she and Anthony were working together on a Spanish album after their breakup. “We’re just in a really great place, and the kids get to spend time with the two of us more and see us working together,” Lopez said. “It’s just good for the whole family.”

The Boy Next Door actress has also developed parenting skills with her ex-wife Jennifer Garner, with whom her husband Ben Affleck has three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11. After rekindling their romance the previous year, Lopez and Affleck, both 50, got married in July 2022.
An eyewitness exclusively revealed to Us Weekly in November 2022 that Garner, 51, “can’t believe how sweet” Lopez is to her children. “Now that Jen and Jen have been co-parenting, they’ve been getting to know each other better and have formed a very new friendship,” the insider added.
