According to Page Six,
Jennifer Lopez has opened up more about the medical drama after she discovered a lump on daughter Emmeâ€™s head when she was just days old. Lopez tells CNNâ€™s Alina Cho in her â€œBig Stars Big Givingâ€ special, â€œI just remember that feeling of something is wrong with that baby and Iâ€™m gonna die.â€ Shortly after Emme and twin brother Max were born in 2008, Lopez described how she found the lump and, â€œI remember looking at Marc [Anthony] and going, â€˜We should call the doctorâ€™ . . . I started panicking a little bit and he was panicking too because . . . we were thinking did somebody drop her when we werenâ€™t looking? . . . I just remember looking at him and saying if this baby . . . if Emmeâ€™s not going to be OK . . . Iâ€™m not going to be OK. Heâ€™s like . . . Iâ€™m not going to be OK . . . none of us are going to be OK.â€ The â€œAmerican Idolâ€ judge and Anthony rushed Emme to the hospital where she underwent a series of tests and, â€œLuckily for us, it turned out OK.â€ J.Lo added, â€œ I was (thinking) like what if I didnâ€™t have that? What if I didnâ€™t have access to great health care? What if I was a mom just sitting there and there was something wrong with my baby and there was nothing I could do about it?â€ To help provide pediatric medical services to the less fortunate, Lopez started the Maribel Foundation, named after Marcâ€™s sister Maribel who died of brain cancer at 8. Others, including Bill Clinton and Tony Bennett, are also interviewed on â€œBig Stars Big Giving,â€ which airs Saturday and Sunday.
On a side note,Â JenniferÂ & Casper were spotted checking out jewelry over the weekend. Can Casper afford Jennifer’s tastes?
