Jennifer Lopez has been showered with praise for introducing her child on stage with they/them pronouns.
The 'Jenny from the Block' singer, 52, headed up the annual Blue Diamond Gala at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, before inviting her child Emme Maribel Muñiz up to sing with her.
Before inviting them on stage, JLo said of her 14-year-old “they’re my favourite duet-partner of all time”, prompting onlookers to praise the mother-of-two for her support. Check out the video below:
"Jlo, you are a wonderful mother and you both sang beautifully," one onlooker wrote on Twitter.
"'They' is how Emme identifies," another rightly pointed out. "This was JLo sharing that information, it's beautiful to see her supporting her child."
Someone else added of the performance: "Awww JLo respecting the pronouns."
"Aw I love her support," someone else said of the doting mum.
"I love how us Mothers will support our children no matter what! I love this, go Emme," a different commenter wrote.
Jennifer shares Emme and their twin brother Maximilian David Muñiz with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, whom she was married to between 2004 and 2014.
Previously, Emme took to the stage with their mother at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show, which has been shown in the Netflix documentary, Halftime.
The non-fiction movie discusses her iconic performance alongside Shakira, as well as her life and career now that the star has entered her early fifties.
The documentary dropped last week on the streaming platform, and it's already got a near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score.
The legend is a talented singer, dancer and actor who can hold her own on just about any stage - or screen in any case.
However, as she explains during the documentary, none of that was easy for the star.
As a synopsis for the documentary states: "Halftime offers an intimate peek behind the curtain revealing the grit and determination that makes Jennifer Lopez.
"The film serves as the kickoff to the second half of her life, as she lays bare her evolution as a Latina, a mother, and an artist, taking agency in her career and using her voice for a greater purpose."
The documentary has already garnered a 95 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is decided by viewers at home.
And even critics are loving the documentary, as it's scored an impressive 84 percent on the Tomatometer, which clocks up the average score of professional reviewers.
