Singer’s dad confirms rumours

Jennifer Lopez is expecting twins with hubby Marc Anthony.

David Lopez, the Hollywood star’s father, has confirmed the news and says that multiple births run in the family.

‘Yes, twins,’ David announced on a Spanish-language TV show. ‘The thing is in my family, my sister also had twins, so it’s a hereditary thing.’

David is very excited about the prospect of his 38-year-old daughter’s two new arrivals.

‘I’m very proud. Jennifer has yearned to be a mother for many years,’ he revealed.

And he’s bought 2 gifts to make sure the little ones have a happy life.

‘In Puerto Rico it’s custom to buy an azabache [black stone] bracelet for babies to protect them from the evil eye,’ David explained, ‘it’s a part of our culture.’
