J.Lo Opens Up About Baby's Medical Scare

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez will never forget the night she and husband Marc Anthony discovered a lump on daughter Emme’s head. Emme and twin brother Max were only three weeks old at the time.

“We both got very nervous, very very nervous, and I just remember my heart sinking to my feet,” Lopez recalled at the recent Noche de Ninos gala benefit for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). “I looked at [Marc] and I said, ‘You know if anything happens, I’m not going to be okay, you know that right?’”

Lopez and Anthony rushed Emme to Children’s Hospital, where she underwent a battery of tests, including an MRI. “Luckily in the end,” Lopez said, “she turned out fine.”

But it turned into something more for the hospital…

Shortly after the scare, the singer-actress joined forces with CHLA to form the Maribel Foundation to help provide pediatric medical services to the less fortunate.

“I started to wonder,” Lopez said, “what if I couldn’t afford a doctor, or receive the medicines, the procedures?”

Lopez also debuted a new song at the event, which she wrote for her twins. A recording of the ballad was played during a video highlighting the Foundation’s work. In it, Lopez sings, “Let’s keep this time for us and make it last as long as we can. It’s already going too fast.”

    ‘You know if anything happens, I’m not going to be okay, you know that right?’”

    What about the child, the first thing she says is about herself, not how terrible it would be to have something happen to her child?

    me, me, me that woman.

    Ms. Bossy ..Her bump came from when Jlo dropped her and she
    hit her head…

  • oriana

    Is she a baby? Why show pictures of her? Why no pictures of her homely kids? They look just like Marc and nothing cute about them at all.

  • Janie

    JLo is a self centered, high maintenance witch!

    Jlo does look a whole lot different…at first I thought it was the hair color, but alas I do see the difference in the before and now…why can’t Hollywood embrace aging…it’s natural and happens to everyone, she is still cute, but she looked better before the knife.

  • Lola

    Babies born with what defect. I believe that is made up.

  • Junior member

    Alison, you should be ashamed for calling her twins Spicletts. Shame, i hope you never have children. She explained that her babies were born with a medical defect and that could happen to anyone.

  • Junior member

    A lump on her daughter”s head? Well, that explains a lot then.

  • Cocoa

    I think Jlo is beautiful, twins not so beautiful and her squirmy little husband…well, lets just say I hope he thanks God everyday that he landed someone like her. I like Jlo, I find her very down to earth and pleasant. I don’t think she is obligated to do charity just because she is rich. I highly doubt all rich people, or even one percent of rich people, do charity work. At least she does some…!

  • Heather

    It looks like she’s had even more work done than that. She was aging horribly fast a few years ago I think when Ben Affleck dumped her for Jennifer Garner it broke more than her heart, it destroyed her looks and career. I read where he was responsible for finding work for her in Hollywood. No Ben, no work I suppose. If you rent the movie Anaconda you will see how different she looked before all the surgeries and skin whitening. I feel so sorry for her children, they look so much like their dad.

  • ELIE TAYLOR

    Let’s see now what has Jlo done this year and for the rest of the
    year NOTHING THAT IS WHAT.. BUT SHE IS OUT AND ABOUT
