''Mommy'' From the Block!

Friday, February 22, 2008

Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony welcomed twins early Friday morning, a son and a daughter. After multiple false alarms over the past few weeks, the babies were born at a Long Island hospital in New York, J. Lo's publicist, Leslie Zelnik says. "The family is doing well," said Zelnik, who did not know if Lopez and Anthony had named the babies yet.

The girl arrived at 12:12 a.m., checking in at 5 pounds, 7 ounces, and the boy followed at 12:23 a.m., tipping the scale at 6 pounds, according to People, which first reported the births and has offered upwards of $6 million for the exclusive photo rights to the tots. These are the couple's first children together. Anthony also has two sons and one daughter from two previous relationships.

A source close to the singer-actress told E! News that, prior to giving birth, Lopez was telling people she plans to take up to a year off from work for mommy duty. "She's been waiting for this moment for years," the insider said. I wish this new family all the best, and I bet these toddlers will be gorgeous!
