Despite being one of the most high-profile celebrities on the planet, Jennifer Lopez can be a very private person, especially when it comes to her infant twins, Max and Emme.

But at Saturday night’s Noche de Niños gala benefit for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, the singer/actress spoke openly about the night she rushed her baby girl to the hospital.

"We both got very nervous, very very nervous, and I just remember my heart sinking to my feet," she revealed, according to, about the night she discovered a lump on then 3-week-old Emme’s head. "I looked at [Marc] and I said, ‘You know if anything happens, I’m not going to be okay, you know that, right?’"


The couple took Emme to Children’s Hospital, where after undergoing several tests, says J.Lo, "Luckily, in the end she turned out fine."

And it turned out fine for Children’s Hospital too when Jennifer soon joined the hospital in forming the Maribel Foundation, which helps to provide pediatric medical services to those in need.
