Marc Anthony praises daughter Emme for Super Bowl performance: ‘Daddy is so proud of you’


Marc Anthony has praised his daughter Emme Muñiz after the 11-year-old performed during the Super Bowl half-time show alongside her mother Jennifer Lopez.

On Sunday, Muñiz joined Lopez, Shakira and a children’s choir on stage at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium during a performance of Let’s Get Loud. 

The 11-year-old also lent her mum a hand while singing Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA, which saw Lopez draped in a feathery, Puerto Rican flag.

“Emme Daddy is so proud of you,” the You Sang to Me singer wrote. “You are my [heart emoji] and I am forever yours.”

Anthony, who also shares an 11-year-old son named Maximilian David with Lopez, wasn’t the only one to praise Muñiz’s performance. 

On social media, many viewers applauded the mother-daughter performance and Muñiz’s bravery. 

“Emme (mini JLo) is a rising star,” one person wrote. “So brave to be performing in front of a huge audience and she did great!”
