Jennifer Lopez dedicated Father’s Day to her papi and to boyfriend Ben Affleck. Along with a video, she wrote in her OntheJLo newsletter:
"I have had a front row seat to watching how you father for over a year now and I have never seen more consistent, loving and selfless father. And it's not just to your own kids but also without obligation to mine as well.
You show up and put them first always. You are affectionate and engaged in every moment they are with you and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Thank you for all you do for all of us. We appreciate and love you beyond measure."
JLo also shared a video of Ben and kid Emme trying to convince her to let Emme get a cat:
In her newsletter, Jennifer confirmed that Ben and Emme ended up winning the debate, saying, “This is the two of them lobbying for a Devon Rex cat. By the way, Hendrix, joined the family shortly after.”

And JLo reintroduced Emme with new pronouns at a recent concert:

At the Blue Diamond Gala, JLo brought out Emme to sing with her.
"I ask them to sing with me all the time, but they won't. So this is a very special occasion. They are very, very busy. Booked. And pricey! It costs me when they come out. But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time. So if you will indulge me," J.Lo said, before Emme began singing Christina Perri’s "A Thousand Years" with a bedazzled rainbow microphone.

Many subsequently interpreted the performance as an affirmation of Emme's pronouns, and praised J.Lo for respecting them.
