Jennifer Lopez and her daughter Emme had the best time performing together at the Super Bowl on Sunday night, as they did a duet to Born in the USA at the end of the show. And while Emme's twin brother Max wasn't up there with him, he couldn't have been prouder of his mum and sister. In a new video posted on Alex Rodriguez's Instagram account, which was taken during rehearsals ahead of the show, Max was seen running up to hug his mum at the end of her practice run. J-Lo's rehearsals took place in New York and Miami, and her doting fiancé A-Rod, and his daughters Natasha and Ella, also went along to cheer her on.

In the footage, Jennifer was also seen telling her children and stepdaughters, along with her group of young backing dancers, that there was an ice cream truck coming during a rehearsal break. Everyone excitedly ran towards it, while J-Lo said: "I wish I could have ice cream!" Alex captioned the rehearsal video: "It truly takes a village to perform in the Super Bowl. Jennifer poured her heart into this project from Day One and I was so lucky to be along for the ride. Months of practicing, adjusting, refining and challenging herself all led to that historic show. Hard work really paid off. Go behind-the-scenes in Part 1 of my YouTube Super Bowl Series. Link in bio!"

While Emme is the twin who has joined Jennifer on stage on several occasions, Max is also a talented singer. The little boy showcased his vocal skills during Jennifer's 50th birthday party in July. The pre-teen got up on stage to perform a solo hit, and received a standing ovation from Jennifer and his soon-to-be stepdad Alex. Emme, meanwhile, performed at Jennifer's It's My Party tour last year, and appeared in the singer's music video, Limitless, where she played a younger version of her mum.

Both Emme and Max are doted on by their parents, who until recently have kept them out of the spotlight so that they can enjoy their childhoods. While Jennifer and the twins' dad Marc Anthony are no longer together, the pair have remained the best of friends since their divorce in 2011. They have been pictured together at key events in their children's lives, such as school concerts. Marc recently shared a photo on Instagram of them holding hands with Emme at her school in December and captioned it: "Nothing but love between us." J-Lo previously opened up about her relationship with Marc during an interview with People, where she described him as her "best friend". She said: "We're just in a really great place, and the kids get to spend time with the two of us more together and see us working together. [Remaining close is] just good for the whole family." She also told Ripa: "We share something very special in the kids, and we know that. We're there for them, and that's the main thing."
