It was so beautiful and so powerful. I was so inspired that I was like, ‘Let me see if I can do this.’ So I did it, and it was a beautiful experience.”
On February 22, 2008, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony welcomed their long-awaited twins, Max and Emme, into the world. While many fans were hoping for a natural birth, the couple ultimately chose to deliver their babies via C-section.
J Lo recently opened up about the experience, saying, “I had a C-section, but my sister gave birth six months later — we got pregnant around the same time — and she asked me to be in the delivery room with her, and I was, like, ‘Wow!’ It was so beautiful and so powerful. I was so inspired that I was like, ‘Let me see if I can do this.’ So I did it, and it was a beautiful experience.”
J Lo’s decision to have a C-section was a personal one, and one that she and her partner made together. While C-sections are often seen as a less natural way to give birth, they can be just as rewarding and powerful as a natural birth. For J Lo, it was a chance to experience the joy of bringing two new lives into the world.
The couple’s twins are now 12 years old, and J Lo has since gone on to have two more children. While she has not revealed how she gave birth to her youngest two children, it is clear that J Lo is a strong advocate for women to make their own decisions when it comes to childbirth. No matter the method, the experience of bringing a new life into the world is always a powerful and beautiful one.
