While JLo's daughter Emme has made several high-profile appearances on stage with her mother, most memorably at the 2020 Super Bowl, Max has kept a lower profile.

However, all this could change in the near future, as the teenager received his first-ever singing lesson on his birthday on Monday.

Emme made headlines after her phenominal Super Bowl performance with Jennifer, but while the pre-teen showed incredible talent, she has no plans to take up singing professionally at the moment.

Jennifer spoke to Extra TV shortly after the performance, where she explained: "For us, it's not about putting her out in the spotlight, it's about doing things together that bond us.

"I don't put her in everything, she's not going to work professionally – a lot of people are asking me that. It's something that we connect on, is singing."

She continued: "I ask her to do these things and if she wants to she can, and if she doesn’t want to that's fine with me too.

"But I just think there was a message there that we could put out into the world, that women being empowered and raising their voices and getting loud and speaking up for themselves.

"And that's something that I want to pass onto my daughter. She flaws me every time, she's an angel."

More recently, Emme appeared on Today with Hoda & Jenna with JLo while promoting her debut book, Lord Help Me, where she again opened up about the Super Bowl.

Chatting to Hoda Kotb, Emme said: "It was scary, but when I got up there everything was fine." Asked whether she was worried about protecting her daughter from the spotlight, J-Lo replied: "I'm not just worried about protecting her from the spotlight, I'm worried about protecting her from life.

"The things she's done are with mommy, they're just little, 30 second things. Yes the Super Bowl was huge, but it was a little thing and I was there to protect her, no matter what."
