JENNIFER LOPEZ has become a mother for the first time – after giving birth to a boy and a girl in New York.
The children – fathered by the singer’s husband Marc Anthony – were born early on Friday (22Feb08) at the North Shore University Hospital in Long Island, just eleven minutes apart.
The girl was born at 12:12am weighing five pounds seven ounces (2.47 kilograms), with the boy born at 12:23am, weighing in at a heavier six pounds
Simon Fields, Lopez’s representative, tells People.com, “Jennifer and Marc are delighted, thrilled and over the moon.”
The couple went public with the baby news during a concert in Miami, Florida late last year (07). Lopez’ father confirmed his daughter was expecting twins last month (Jan08).
Lopez was reported to have checked into the medical facility on Wednesday
(20Feb08) to prepare for the impending birth.
The as-yet-unnamed tots are the fourth and fifth children for Anthony, who has three children from previous relationships.
