Jennifer Lopez (52) performed Thursday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for the Annual Diamond Gala and made a special announcement onstage. The singer invited her child Emme to sing a moppie together and used the pronouns ‘hen’ and ‘hun’ to represent Emme.
“This is my all-time favorite duet partner”
In doing so, she seems to suggest that Emme does not identify as a boy or girl, but J.Lo left out details about Emme’s gender identity. The pronouns ‘them’ and ‘their’ do not necessarily mean that someone identifies as non-binary.
“The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this,” continues Jennifer, who also sang a duet with Emme during her famous Superbowl performance.
“I always ask them to sing together, but they don’t want to,” she explains to the audience. “So this is a special occasion because they are fully booked and not cheap. They also cost me a lot of money when they come on stage, but they are worth every penny because this is my favorite duet partner of all time.”
So when Jennifer talks about ‘them’, she’s talking about her child Emme. Emme is part of twins; them has another twin brother, Max. After the announcement, Emme emerged and mother and child sang Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” together.
