Stars are people too, some of them are straight-up weird, but they basically live the same lives we do under constant surveillance. So, like any other person out there, this spicy Latina, has a family, we have met all Jennifer Lopez has been romantically involved with over the years, now it’s time to meet Jennifer Lopez’s kids and the rest of her family.
We are talking, Mama and Papa Lopez, Jennifer’s sister, and a bonus mini-tour of the star’s residence. Sit tight.
Jennifer Lopez Kids
Despite being married twice before, the star finally had kids with husband number three, Marc Anthony. The twins Emme Maribel Muniz and Maximilian David Muniz were born on February 22, 2008. Since their birth, it is evident that the star goes out of her way to be involved in their lives.
Jennifer Lopez kids were born by a C-section with Max being born 1 minute after Emme. After they were born, the star said, ‘ I miss feeling them inside of me. It’s funny — when their little umbilical cords fell off, I cried. That was the last attachment we had where it was just us.’
Nevertheless, she moved on to be a doting mother to her twins. Jennifer Lopez kids have come a long way since, February 22, 2008, they are now 8 years old and the star threw them a befitting birthday party and there is visual proof on Instagram.
Jennifer Lopez kids sure have one proud Mommy.
Jennifer Lopez Sisters
If you ever thought that the star was an only child, boy was you wrong. She is in fact a middle child, with an older sister Leslie and a younger sister Lynda. Growing up, the sisters each had a little bit of an entertainer in each of them.
Leslie, the oldest of the trio, is also musically inclined, she spent some time exploring the career path of an opera singer, but later on, settled for some good ‘ol family life. She is currently a housewife and a homemaker.
Lynda on the other hand has made quite a name for herself. After majoring in Broadcasting and Communications at Long Island University, she pursued a full-on career in Journalism. She has worked on both radio and TV platforms and she even took some time off to work for her sister, Jennifer.
Though she is a career woman, she is also a family woman. Lynda and her boyfriend Adam Goldfried had a daughter named Lucie Wren Lopez-Goldfried, on August 28, 2008.
Jennifer Lopez Parents
The star was born to Puerto Rican parents, who lived in the Bronx and their names are Guadalupe Rodríguez and David Lopez. Theirs was a relatively poor family, her dad worked the night shift at the Guardian Insurance Company before becoming a computer technician at the firm, while her mother was a homemaker.
Originally, when Jennifer expressed that she wanted to go into show business, her parents thought it was absurd. She was homeless for a while when she was 18 because she butted heads with her mum.
‘My mom and I butted heads, I didn’t want to go to college — I wanted to try dance full-time. So she and I had a break,’ she said, ‘I started sleeping on the sofa in the dance studio. I was homeless, but I told her, this is what I have to do.’
Despite this the star says she values the way she was brought up, it taught her the kind of work ethic she hopes to pass on to her children, she said, ‘I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I’ve learned something about kids — they don’t do what you say; they do what you do, I watched my parents. My dad worked nights, and I was aware of how much he was doing for us.’
She added, ‘ My mom was a Tupperware lady and also worked at the school. I always felt that I couldn’t let them down. And I had a natural discipline from early on. I was always training for something.’
So we guess it’s safe to say, she has a good relationship with her parents, although the two are currently not together.
