A rebirth,’ she said. ‘It’s no wonder to me because this day 14 years ago has always symbolized for me the first day of the rest of my life. Max and Lulu, I will love you forever and ever and ever… #UntilItBeatsNoMore.’
Lopez, who is currently dating fellow A-lister Ben Affleck, thanked her fans for videos they have made of her, saying, ‘I love them so much.’
Lopez opened up about how quickly her kids are growing up earlier this month on an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
‘They’re amazing, first of all,’ Lopez said. ‘And they’re just now, they’re adults. They’re like little adults and they have their own lives and they have all their own ideas about the world already and they love to kind of like, show you that they know things.’

She added: ‘I feel like I learn so much from them. They keep me so abreast with the world and what’s happening now and how kids are thinking. It’s a whole different thing. It’s a different world! Especially since a couple of years ago they were in the crux of that transition from being babies to conscious of what’s going on. So there’s a lot going on with them.’
The Waiting for Tonight artist explained the meaning behind her coconuts nickname she’s given them.
‘I like to think that they like it,’ she said. ‘It’s cute I call them coconuts because they obviously are twins, there are two of them, and when they were in the crib when they were very very little and their hair looks like coconut hair so I used to call them coconuts. And it stuck. It just stuck.’
