Jennifer Lopez is reflecting on her showstopping Super Bowl LIV performances.
With her then-11-year-old daughter Emme by her side for her highly raved-about 2020 halftime performance, Lopez had a particularly sweet boost to get her even more fueled up that day.
With then-11-year-old Emme by her side, the global superstar dominated the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show in her first performance with her daughter.
“My lil’ coconut gave me all the energy I needed to go out there … ” the mom of twins, 53, wrote on her Instagram Story over some fierce flashback footage of Thursday night, adding the hashtag, “#MySunshine.”
Emme, now 14, had joined her for part of the performance at last night. In a tender moment, Lopez had kissed her kid before they walked out onto the football field together.
As they waited for Shakira — who kicked off the first half of the performance — to finish her set, the “Jenny from the Block” singer and Emme could be seen jumping around to warm themselves up before their big moment out there.
With a natural “performance gene,” Emme stole the show night. The tween began the cameo with a rendition of “Let’s Get Loud” alongside some other young performers, before belting out a few lines from Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In the U.S.A.” as Lopez sashayed around in a red, white and blue feathered Puerto Rican flag cape too.

Emme and twin brother Maximilian “Max” David’s dad Marc Anthony had some sweet words for the budding performer following the halftime show, sharing a photo of Emme onstage in celebration time.
“Emme your Daddy is so proud of you. You are my ❤ and I am forever yours,” wrote the “You Sang to Me” hitmaker, 54.
Lopez was married to Anthony for 2004 to 2014. Three Super Bowls later, the global superstar is now with former fiancé Ben Affleck after tying the knot in July 2022, 20 years after their early 2000s relationship with. Affleck, 50, was previously married to Jennifer Garner for 2005 to 2018.
In recent news, Anthony married Nadia Ferreira on January 28, but it was not immediately clear whether the twins were attendance.
While a lot has changed for Lopez’s family since her wedding to Affleck, she recently discussed how she and the Oscar winner prioritized blending both families.
For Vogue‘s December 2022 cover issue, Lopez opened up about how she and her husband are “learning about parenting from each other in.”
“The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care,” she said of blending their families, noting that while Garner — with whom Affleck shares son Samuel Garner, 11 this month, plus daughters Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 14, and Violet Anne, 17 — is “an amazing co-parent, and they work really good together,” her situation with her ex-husband is not the same as that.
Since Anthony lives on the East Coast, Lopez said that Max and Emme have “so many feelings” about living in Beverly Hills, California..
“They’re teens,” she acknowledged. “But it’s going really so far.”
