Jennifer Lopez was performing at the Dodgers Foundation’s Blue Diamond Gala when she introduced a “special guest.” She noticeably used gender neutral pronouns like “they” and “them” to introduce the guest singer.

Lopez described the singer as “my favorite duet partner of all time.” Lopez added, “The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this. I ask them to sing with me all the time but they won’t, so this is a very special occasion, because they’re very, very busy and booked and pricey.”

The guest singer was Lopez’s child, Emme, who she shares with father Marc Anthony. Fans definitely took notice that Lopez used gender neutral pronouns when talking about her child, and they are praising her for it.

Emme and Lopez had not performed together since the Super Bowl in 2020, so Lopez wasn’t kidding when she described performing together as “a special occasion.”

Emme and Lopez performed the song “A Thousand Years” together. Fans loved every moment.

Fans are loving how supportive Lopez is of her children, modeling supportive parenting by using her child’s preferred pronouns and sharing her child’s preferred pronouns with the world during pride month.

Emme and their twin brother Max turned 14 years old in February. In honor of the occasion, Lopez shared a video montage on Instagram. She wrote, “My babies, my sunshine, my loves. Happiest of birthdays to my two coconuts.”
