Lopez, the mother of 5-year-old twins, Maximilian and Emme, 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 aims to prevent birth defects, premature births and infant mortality.

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

Lopez joins a list of previous honorees that includes Reese Witherspoon, who honored at last year’s event.
