Celebrity Parents Jennifer Lopez's Dad Confirms Twins The singer's father tells a Spanish-language TV show he's excited about the two arrivals By People Staff Published on February 5, 2008 06:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic The rumors are true, confirmed by no less a source than her father: Jennifer Lopez is expecting twins. And it isn’t even a Lopez family first. “Yes, twins,” her dad David Lopez said in an interview on the Spanish-language show Escéndalo TV, PEOPLE en Español reports. “The thing is in my family, my sister also had twins, so it’s a hereditary thing.” For David Lopez, the news means double the excitement. “I’m very proud. Jennifer has yearned to be a mother for many years,” he said. And he already has gifts ready for his 38-year-old daughter’s babies. “In Puerto Rico it’s custom to buy an azabache [black stone] bracelet for babies to protect them from the evil eye, it’s part of our culture,” he said. As she became noticeably pregnant, J-Lo finally announced last November that she and Marc Anthony were expecting.
