Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words. . From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead. . Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day. . Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤️ . Te amo mucho, Lola. . - Macho 13 @jlo
The best times are with these lil ones... 🙏🏼🌟 #ilovechristmastime #familia
About last night... Perfect way to start the year... Love that they still wanna fall asleep in Mama’s arms ♥️♥️🙏🏼
When we were kids, birthdays were exciting because it was all about the gifts we would be getting. A new bat, dance shoes, maybe a new CD (yes I’m old!). I see firsthand how that’s changed for Jennifer, and how she’s found joy in sharing with others. For someone who has been about giving everything she has 365 days a year—to our children, our families, the world—I hope today, we can give you all the happiness you deserve. I love you mucho Macha 13. ❤️

Today has an entirely different meaning to me than I did when I first became a father to Tashi and then my Ella Bella. It’s an incredible responsibility, and one I have always treasured. But as I grow older and proudly watch them doing the same, not only are my kids my pride and joy and number one priority - now they also motivate me. Every day, Tashi and Ella make me a better dad and a better person. Being a father is the greatest job in the world, more than any career I could have dreamed of as a kid. To all the fathers out there, never stop trying to be the best. I don’t. #HappyFathersDay

Lopez pulled out the ultimate throwback pic, a heartwarming image of her gazing at the two as they lay in a crib as wee newborns.

“I know you’re 12 years old today but you will always be my babies... 🥥🤍🤍🥥,” she captioned the photos. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL COCONUTS!!!”

Lopez also posted video footage of the twins’ birthday party on her Instagram Stories, along with the caption, “Yesterday was a great day.”

Rodriguez meanwhile shared a sweet shot of him with Lopez, the twins and his own daughters from a previous relationship, Natasha and Ella.

“Happy Birthday Emme & Max!!!!!” the former baseballer captioned the photo, which he also shared alongside another pic with the four children on his Instagram Stories. “I’m so proud of both of you and so lucky to be a part of your life. I love you! ❤️.”

The posts come as Rodriguez and Lopez prepare to make their blended family official with their upcoming nuptials.

According to an ET source, the big day will go down over this summer.

"Jennifer and Alex plan to get married in the summer, and can’t wait for the big day,” the source said. “Jennifer and Alex already do everything together and are basically married, but are excited to make it official." 

And, judging by ET’s interview with Natasha and Ella following Lopez’s Super Bowl halftime show performance with Emme, the kids have already forged a strong sisterhood.

“My favorite part was when the little girls came out and Emme sang, it was really good," Ella said about the performance.

"It was the coolest thing to watch my stepsister sing,” Natasha added. “I'm so proud of her every time I see her and her voice is just angelic."
