Jennifer Lopez is extremely proud of her daughter.

The singer and actress directed her first video, clip for her song “Limitless”, which is featured on the soundtrack of her new feature film Second Act. The song features her daughter Emma, 10, one of her twins.

"No, no, no, I die. I die. I die. Finally, she's like, 'Mom, I can do it,' and I'm like, 'Oh God,'" Lopez said on the Tonight Show on Tuesday, getting emotional. "I said no for a long time and then finally I said yes. and I said, 'Baby, are you sure? You can't, halfway through, say you're tired. We have to do it.' When I tell you, she was so amazing and I was so proud. I forgot that I was directing my first video, it was all about her. It was all about her."
