Marc Anthony is such a big giver when it comes to giving his singer-actress wife Jennifer Lopez a thank you present. The songwriter reportedly has splashed out nearly $2.5 million on a custom pair of diamond earrings, given to Lopez to celebrate the birth of their twins.

The boy, called Max, then followed at 12:23 A.M., weighing 6 lbs. The babies are the first children for Lopez, 38, and the fourth for Anthony, 39. He also has two sons and one daughter from two previous relationships.
Marc, according to the Mirror, was spotted checking on the diamonds, reportedly imported from South Africa, at a New York jewelers. "It's no secret that J-Lo has expensive taste, so Marc was going to have to spend a serious amount to show her how he feels," a source revealed.
He, moreover, personally supervised the design of the earrings and had them engraved with the babies' initials, one for each ear.
Lopez introduced her twins; Max and Emme, to the world on the cover of April 2008 issue of People Magazine. The cover read "TWIN BLISS, WORLD EXCLUSIVE, Intimate photos at home (and in the nursery!) with Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and babies Max and Emme."
