    It’s very symbolic. Usually someone leaves this earth (ex. her grandmother) and another person comes in (ex. her baby). Who knows it may even be a girl (or two lol). Hopefully she will respect that cycle of life as a ‘sign’ and incorporate her grandmothers name somewhere in that childs name.

    @new yorker:
    I agree with you about the symbolism.

    I hate when it happens though, it’s sad but she knew it would happen one day. That’s no less traumatic.

    I hate when that happens.

    Happy about her pending mommy-hood, though, and I don’t listen to her music or watch her movies.

    This explains why an article I read last night said her Dancing with the Stars performance tonight being pre-taped. The article was about the curse on this year’s season; Marie Osmond collapsins, Jane Seymour’s mother dying, Gloria Estefan backing out of performing for her sick mother, and now this.

    I wonder how long ago La Lopez visisted her family? It must be a real shame be to have missed out on your grandma bcoz of her fame. She doesn’t seem to spoil her family despite all her wealt. You see those rich celebrities taking their family on vacation once in a while. Never J.LO, and she was quite a show before Marc came along.

    # 16 koko. I have seen many pictures of j.lo with her mom (not fancy vacations, just strolling around the city). She talked about her mom and grand mom at most of late night show appearences. Who are we to judge her family relations not really knowing what they do when out of the spot light.

    i completly agree people should mind their own. it’s noone business celebs perfer to do when their not infront of a camera.

    it’s crazy how people feel they are intitled to know everthing about a particular celeb.

    Koko, you are an idiot, you should be embarrased.

    Her mother won tons of money in Vegas I’m sure she can take herself on an expensive vacay.

    It is really symbolic and weird the way these things happen. Death comes to bring new life in a way. Sad, but necessary.

    May she rest in peace.

    I’m horrified when the day any of my relatives pass away. That has yet to happen to me, and I don’t know how it feels. Thats why I feel weird trying to comfort someone who has had a death in the family. Saying “sorry to hear that” just seems kind of stupid from someone who knows nothing IMO. Maybe its just me.

    I know how it feels to lose someone close. I have had 11 deaths between 01′ and 07′, to include my father, husband, godchild and a recent miscarriage. Stay strong J.Lo. Denise

    P.S. J.Lo., right now the #1 priority is that angel inside your tummy! I understand that you feel that you OWE your fans, but right now you owe your angel your undivided attention. Please don’t take this joy inside of you for granted. It’s too wonderful. I just miscarried June 07′, but have been blessed with another angel myself inside of me. Indulge in this moment. Don’t let the time pass you by! LIFE IS TO PRECIOUS! Denise
