Born 22 February 2008, Maximilian David Muñiz is American singer, actor, and producer Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s son. Maximilian was born over ten minutes after his twin sister, Emme Muniz. They are both of Puerto Rican, Spanish, and Taíno descent, inherited from their parents. Their middle names were derived from the names of their parents’ family members. He and his sister have an older half-sister and three older half-brothers from their father’s previous relationships.
Maximilian’s parents, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were married for seven years between 2004 and 2011. Their divorce was finalized in 2014, and Jennifer won primary custody of the children. When their mother discovered she’d gotten pregnant, she was away in Portugal for a performance. She, however, took many tests before confirming she was indeed pregnant. When she found out that she was expecting twins and announced this news, the public, for some reason, wrongly assumed she’d undergone in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
Maximilian and his sister were celebrities from birth, and unsurprisingly so. Their parents’ status is more than enough attraction. The twins’ first photographs were sold to People magazine for $6,000,000. That’s what fame can do!
