Marc Anthony has praised his daughter Emme Muñiz after the 11-year-old performed during the Super Bowl half-time show alongside her mother Jennifer Lopez.

On Sunday, Muñiz joined Lopez, Shakira and a children’s choir on stage at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium during a performance of Let’s Get Loud.

The 11-year-old also lent her mum a hand while singing Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA, which saw Lopez draped in a feathery, Puerto Rican flag.

Following the performance, Anthony, who was married to Lopez for 10 years, tweeted a congratulatory message to his daughter.

“Emme Daddy is so proud of you,” the You Sang to Me singer wrote. “You are my [heart emoji] and I am forever yours.”

Anthony, who also shares an 11-year-old son named Maximilian David with Lopez, wasn’t the only one to praise Muñiz's performance.

On social media, many viewers applauded the mother-daughter performance and Muñiz's bravery.

“Emme (mini JLo) is a rising star,” one person wrote. “So brave to be performing in front of a huge audience and she did great!”

Kim Kardashian wrote: “Can we talk about how amazing JLo’s daughter Emme sang and on such a huge stage like the Super Bowl.”

“Can we talk about Emme JLo’s daughter performing tonight and she was just as amazing as her momma,” someone else tweeted.

This is not the first time Muñiz has taken the stage alongside her mother. In June, the On The Floor singer shared a video of her show at The Forum in Los Angeles, California, which showed her daughter accompanying her for a duet of her song Limitless.
