Like mother, like daughter. Jennifer Lopez’ daughter Emme looks set to follow in her famous mother’s footsteps of becoming a superstar singer.

The 50-year-old recently shared a video of Emme perfectly belting out Alicia Key’s number one hit If I Ain’t Got You on social media. The 11-year-old paid a surprise visit to J.Lo who was practising for a live performance.

Earlier this year, the mother and daughter performed a duet of Limitless during the singer’s It’s My Party tour in Los Angeles.

The Waiting For Tonight singer says she is supportive of Emme’s dream.  

“I want her to know she’s limitless,” said Lopez. “Performing a duet with her on tour this summer was such a proud moment for me and I know she can accomplish anything if there’s a passion behind it.”

Lopez is tipped for an Oscar for her performance in the crime movie Hustlers but the superstar says that her kids are always her first priority. She has a pair of twins Emme and Max with ex-husband singer-actor Marc Anthony. Lopez divorced Anthony in 2014 after 10 years of marriage.

“My children always come first. That might mean I’m on an airplane more than I otherwise would be, or flying through the night, but it’s so important to be there and watch them grow.”

Anthony is also on board with her singing ambitions as long she wants to launch a music career “because she likes it and not because she wants to be famous.”

“I asked Emme, “Why do you sing?” And she said because she feels good. It’s the best response.”

“Music was a big part of my life growing up and I hope it does the same for [Emme] as it has done for me,” says the You Sang To Me singer.
