Jennifer Lopez and her daughter Emme Muñiz enjoyed a fantastic weekend in New York City. The mother-daughter duo ventured to ‘The City That Never Sleeps’, indulging in the acclaimed production of Merrily We Roll Along, one of Broadway’s recent smash-hit musicals.

‘The Bronx Diva’ shared with her followers a glimpse of her mother-daughter weekend. During their theater outing, JLo and Emme were joined by Lynda Lopez, the singer’s sister, producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, a close friend of JLo, and vocal coach Stevie Mackey. JLo posted some photos of the evening on her Instagram stories and feed, revealing that Emme has become part of the group, another of her partners in her adventures.

One of the photos that gained the most attention was the one that shows the singer of hits like “This is Me... Now” warmly embracing her 16-year-old daughter. Despite Emme being in the midst of adolescence, they and JLo share a strong bond, and their mutual passion for theater productions and musicals appears to have strengthened their connection even more. Emme’s twin, Max, did not appear to have joined them for this theater outing, as he was missing from his mother’s reel of images.

In another snapshot shared by JLo in her reel, titled “A Merry Sunday,” the singer posted a photo of Emme embracing Jonathan Groff, one of the leading actors in the play she attended with her mom. Emme’s signature comfy style is evident in the image, as they wore a short-sleeved black shirt with white buttons and large glasses.

In a previous interview, JLo told Stellar that, like any parent, she was navigating through her children’s adolescence. “‘It’s the most heartbreaking time,” confessed JLo about the stage of her ’coconuts‘, as she affectionately calls the twins. “I thought my heart had been broken before; no, this is the worst.” Despite the complexity of this stage, the singer reassured that the kids just needed time to find themselves. “They just need to find their own way,” said the actress. “They love you, you’re their mom, you’ve taken care of them, and now they need to establish their own identity,” she added.
