Jennifer Lopez has a new collab in the works and this time, it’s not with a musician. It’s with talkshow host Jimmy Fallon!
They’ve teamed up to write a bilingual children’s book called Con Pollo which will not only follow the adventures of a plucky chicken named Pollo but also introduce kids to some Spanish vocab.

“Jennifer and I have always wanted to do something together and one of the many things I love about her is how great of a mom she is,” Jimmy shared in a statement.
“Since we’re both parents, we thought a children’s book would be the perfect fit. It’s fun and educational and my Spanish teachers from high school would be so impressed to know that I’m teaching kids to speak Spanish with Jennifer Lopez!”
Oh and Jennifer shared a little statement too: “I’m so excited to launch my first children’s book and it’s even more special to collaborate with Jimmy!”
The book which is due out in October, will be published by Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group.
According to Senior Vice President Jean Feiwel, Con Pollo “is about friendship and sweetness and all about learning a little Spanish.”
It’s the first children’s book for JLo who has previously released a memoir TRUE LOVE while Jimmy is the author of four #1 New York Times bestselling children’s books including Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.
