Lopez's manager, Simon Fields, confirmed the babies' names to People magazine on Friday.

The twins were born at a Long Island hospital on February 22, with 5-pound, 7-ounce Emme arriving about 15 minutes before her 6-pound brother. The hospital's name was not disclosed.

Fields said then that Lopez, a first-time mother at 39, was "thrilled" at the babies' arrival. The 38-year-old Anthony has three other children.
