Pop star actress Jennifer Lopez recently introduced her 14-year-old daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, using gender-neutral pronouns at a public event, joining the wave of celebrities to have adopted the trend.
Performing at the LA Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday night, Lopez routinely referred to her daughter as “they” and “them.”
“The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this, and I ask them to sing with me all the time, and they won’t,” Lopez said. “So this is a very special occasion. They are very, very busy. Booked. And pricey.”
“They cost me when they come out. But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time. So if you will indulge me,”She added.
Wearing a hot pink blouse and shorts topped with a black LA Dodgers hat, Emme performed a rendition of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years”Together with her mother.
Lopez and Marc Anthony share Emme.
The truth of Emme’s gender identity is not known. Lopez may have used pronouns in order to create mystery about the secret performer, or to try to avoid using pronouns that are specific to her gender due to political correctness.

The trend of celebrities referring to their kids by their preferred pronouns quasi-began in 2014 when celebrity power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie publicly treated their five-year-old daughter as a boy after she insisted they see her as such. According to various leftist sites, including The Advocate, the now-divorced couple reportedly supported their eight-year-old daughter Shiloh’s “decision”To both wear suits, and to be called by their name “John.”
Oprah was told by Pitt that Shiloh, who was two years old, insisted that her name be called. “John.”Angelina Jolie recited his words when she told the story in 2010. Vanity Fair “[Shiloh] wants to be a boy, so we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
Charlize Theron, an actress later went further than this when she admitted to having raised her adopted son at seven years old as a girl since he was just three.
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” Charlize told the Daily Mail. “Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’”
“So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive,”She continued. “They were born who they are, and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”
