Jennifer Lopez referred to her child Emme with “she/she” pronouns as she introduced the 14-year-old to a Los Angeles audience on Thursday.
“I ask them to sing with me all the time, but they don’t, so this is a very special occasion because they’re very busy and fully booked and expensive,” the 52-year-old Grammy winner said during a performance at the Dodgers Foundation’s Blue Diamond Gala. “They cost me when they come true.”
The songwriter continued to use gender-neutral pronouns, adding, “They’re worth every penny because they’re my all-time favorite duet partner. So if you’d like to spoil me.”
Lopez and her child then impressed fans with a duet of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.”
Emme paired their bright pink shirt and shorts with a black hat and matching shoes, while their mom rocked a turquoise set and feathered cloak.
The “Let’s Get Loud” singer shares 14-year-old son Maximilian with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
The teenage twins celebrated their birthday in February, with the actress gushing via Instagram that she is “so grateful” to have them in her life.
“You taught me the true meaning of life and changed me forever in the most amazing way,” the “Maid in Manhattan” star wrote at the time. “I just hope I can be half the blessing you’ve been in my life.”
She and Anthony have co-parents Emme and Maximilian since their divorce in 2014.
The tropical salsa artist, 53, is currently engaged to model Nadia Ferreira, while Lopez accepted a proposal from Ben Affleck in April.
The 49-year-old actor, who shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, got on one knee wearing a green diamond ring while Lopez was in the bathtub.
“It was the most romantic thing I could have ever imagined,” Lopez told her newsletter subscribers about her engagement. “Just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people who promise to always be there for each other.”
The dancer wished Affleck and her father, David Lopez, a happy Father’s Day on Sunday, leaving Anthony strikingly out of her holiday tribute.
“Happy Father’s Day to the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent and selfless daddy ever,” Lopez wrote of her fiancé via Instagram.
