Jennifer Lopez‘s former husband, Marc Anthony, spoke out on social media after seeing his daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, join her mom on stage during Lopez’s Super Bowl LIV halftime show performance with Shakira. The adorable 11-year-old made a surprise appearance during the big show at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, as she burst onto the stage to show off her powerful vocals.
Partway through her segment of the energetic halftime performance, JLo handed over the spotlight to her only daughter as Emme belted out her mom’s 1999 hit “Let’s Get Loud” and covered Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”
Emme was even joined by Shakira on drums as all three performed together while giving a special shoutout to immigrants across the U.S.
Mere minutes after the little girl put her powerhouse vocals on show during the event — which saw the Kansas City Chiefs take home the win over the San Francisco 49ers — Marc took to social media to gush over his daughter.
The Latin superstar posted a screenshot of Emme’s big moment to his Instagram account and told his 10.6 million followers just how proud he is of her.
The upload showed Emme all decked out in white as she looked out to the audience, confidently holding the microphone up to her mouth while several other child performers sang behind her.
The 11-year-old also went inside an illuminated circular cage as part of the performance, a bit of symbolism which many viewers interpreted as a subtle nod towards the issue of child slavery.
Fans clambered to share their own praise in the comments section of Marc’s heartfelt upload. The photo has received more than 12,000 comments and over 707,000 likes in about nine hours of having been shared.
“She killed it. A STAR is born,” one fan told Marc of Emme.
“The world is proud of her right now! She is amazing and has a very bright future ahead! Looking forward to seeing her blossom!” another fan wrote.
“THAT TRULY WAS THE BEST PART OF THE SHOW!!!” a third admirer gushed.
Marc and Jennifer are also parents to 11-year-old son Max, who is Emme’s twin brother. The former couple were married for a decade between 2004 and 2014.
They’ve since proven — on multiple occasions — how well they co-parent in the wake of their split, and even posted sweet photos of their blended family back in 2018.
The snaps shared to Instagram showed the modern family gather for a dance recital as JLo and Marc posed with their kids alongside Jennifer’s fiancé — Alex Rodriguez — and his two children, Natasha and Ella.
