All eyes were on Shakira and Jennifer Lopez during the Super Bowl halftime show, but there was one special guest who stole the entire performance — Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz.
After Lopez threw it back with a performance of “Jenny From the Block” and “Get Right,” she was joined by a children’s choir which included her daughter. Muñiz sweetly sang Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” as Lopez returned to the stage draped in a feathery, Puerto Rican flag.
People, even celebrities, quickly took notice of the young girl’s talents and her remarkable performance.
“Is that J Lo’s daughter out singing her?!” wrote @AshleyShyMiller to Twitter.
“Can we talk about how amazing @JLo’s daughter Emme sang and on such a huge stage like the Super Bowl,” tweeted Kim Kardashian.
Here’s everything we know about Emme.
She’s not new to this, she’s true to this
Judging by how comfortable the 11-year-old looked during one of the most watched performances, this definitely isn’t Muñiz’s first rodeo.
Last year, Lopez shared a behind the scenes video of rehearsals for her “Today” show summer concert series performance. Emme visited her mom during rehearsals and gave an impromptu unforgettable rendition of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.”
“We should have her come out and do something on tour,” Lopez said in the video. “Want to? Want to put a little piece in the show?”
“I don’t know,” Emme replied.

She’s a twin
Emme has a twin brother, Maximilian David Muñiz.
The “Hustlers” star shared a video to her YouTube channel last year where she let her kids ask her anything.
Through giggles and dabbing and getting her son to set down his phone, we got to learn a little more about the superstar as a mom.
“Is being a mom different than you expected?” Max asked in the almost 10-minute long video.
“You cannot imagine what it’s like to be a mom until you are a mom,” she responded.
The superstar also told the story of when she and ex-husband Marc Anthony found out they were having twins. She recalled feeling “flutters” in her belly, then going to the doctor and seeing them in an ultrasound.
“I laughed out loud, I couldn’t believe it,” she said.
Her dad is Marc Anthony
It’s no surprise that Emme can belt out a Super Bowl halftime show performance like she’s done it before, she’s the daughter of two singers.
Lopez shares her two kids with ex-husband Marc Anthony. The two married in 2004 and split in 2011. Anthony is now married to Shannon De Lima while Lopez is engaged to Alex Rodriguez.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight last year, the “I’m Real” artist shared that Emme takes after her dad.
“She’s got her daddy’s voice. She’s amazing,” Lopez said. “It’s natural. Emme could always sing. I remember when she was in the crib, when she was a baby, she used to be humming, like, really humming to herself.”
Anthony tweeted his support for Emme following her halftime performance.
“Emme Daddy is so proud of you. You are my (heart) and I am forever yours,” the Grammy-winning artist wrote alongside a video of his daughter performing.
