(Newser) – Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony brought two new faces into the world early this morning: a girl (5 pounds, 7 ounces) and a boy (6 pounds), People reports. The twins, born just after midnight, are J. Lo’s first children, and Marc’s fourth and fifth. “Jennifer and Marc are delighted, thrilled, and over the moon,” said Lopez’s manager.

Lopez pal Leah Remini says the film and pop star is up for the job, calling her “a born mom.” “She’s just so giving and loving,” Remini says. The birth comes four months after J. Lo announced her pregnancy at a Miami gig. Now she’s ready for things to quiet down. “At this point, any woman can sympathize,” she told Harper's Bazaar.
