Jennifer Lopez's twin daughters, Emme and Max

Jennifer Lopez Releases Unusual Video of Her and Her Twins Emme and Max Celebrating Their 15th Birthdays

Jennifer Lopez’s twin daughters, Emme and Max, turned 15 today, and their mother shared an intimate insight into their life together with her millions of followers. Lopez posted an Instagram Reel set to Taylor Swift’s “Fifteen (Taylor’s Version),” which included footage from Emme and Max’s life. Lopez has twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

“Happy birthday to my lovely, sparkling coconuts,” Lopez posted on Instagram. “I am extremely proud of both of you in every aspect. You fill my heart and soul with so much love and happiness. I love you forever and ever HAPPY BIRTHDAY #TWINS”

In an interview published in Vogue this December, Lopez discussed how becoming a mother affected her and what she looked for in relationships. “I just didn’t understand what it meant to care for myself, to not prioritize someone else’s feelings and needs—and your need for them to adore you—over taking care of yourself,” she said. “You twist yourself into a pretzel for people and think it’s noble to put yourself last. And it isn’t. Those patterns become profound patterns that you carry with you, and suddenly you realize, Wait, this doesn’t seem right. Why am I never content? That was how I felt for a long time. Finally, I exclaimed, “Ugh!” It’s time to figure out who I am so that I can be decent to these infants. Even with all of my willingness, it took years and years to actually connect the pieces together, like, “Oh, this thing I do because of this, that thing I do because that happened to me when I was this age.”

“This generation is beautifully informed, involved, and bold, and they will call bullshit on something pretty quickly,” she said of her children and their peers. I want my children to advocate for themselves and the causes they care about. I want all of the tiny girls in the world to scream. Raise your voice! Say it when it’s incorrect. Don’t be scared. For a long time, I was terrified: afraid of not getting the job, afraid of upsetting people, afraid that people wouldn’t like me. No.”
