Jennifer Lopez Gives Birth To Twins
It's double the baby joy for Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony: They're the proud new parents of twins, a boy and a girl, Jennifer's manager told PEOPLE exclusively. The babies were born early Friday in Long Island, New York. The girl was born at 12:12 a.m. and weighed 5 lbs. 7 oz., and the boy followed at 12:23 a.m., weighing 6 lbs. (The babies names have not been released.)
"Jennifer and Marc are delighted, thrilled and over the moon," Jennifer's manager Simon Fields told PEOPLE exclusively. They're the first children for Jennifer and the fourth and fifth for Marc. The couple celebrated the impending births with a baby shower in New York on January 19. "They were just beaming the entire time," said one partygoer.
Jennifer announced her pregnancy November 8, telling the crowd during her final Miami concert: "Marc and I are expecting a baby!" The news of twins was finally confirmed by Jennifer's dad earlier this month, in an interview on Spanish-language television.
