Jennifer Lopez is set to receive one very special award–but not for her acting, dancing, or singing!

The 44-year-old mother of twins, Max and Emme, is being honored by The March of Dimes for her role as a mamá!

According to The Huffington Post, JLO will receive the Grace Kelly Award at the eighth annual March of Dimes luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday. She’s being recognized as a celebrity parent role model, supporting women giving birth to healthy babies after full-term pregnancies.

The 75-year-old nonprofit organization works to prevent birth defects, premature births, and infant mortality. 

In a statement, Lopez said: “As a mother myself, I am aware of the importance of healthful pregnancies and babies.”

Bravo, JLO, for all your hard work!
