Facts

1. Jennifer Lopez's husband is a pilot with Southwest Airlines.

2. Except for the name, Lopez has nothing in common with the American singer of the same name.

3. NBC 5 won 11 Lone Star Emmy Awards while Jenifer was working with them as a meteorologist anchor.

4. Once while Jennifer was about to go on air at her studio, a young man approached her & inquired if 'real Jennifer Lopez' was going to visit the studio. She nodded in a yes. The excited man, however, realised later that the woman he was talking to is Jennifer Lopez herself, not the singer and actress but the bulletin host. She said the man looked at her, turned beet red and fled.

5. Following all the confusion, Lopez also decided to switch to her married name in the year 2000. But the channel management advised her not to do so as her American husband's surname was very much difficult to pronounce.

6. Joking about the same, Jennifer once said that the twinning of her name with the popular singer and actress also has some plus points, especially while booking an appointment at a salon. The staff gets excited and gives her an immediate slot, she said.
