Jennifer Lopez's son Max could melt even the coldest of hearts. The "American Idol" judge and mom to 5-year-old twins Max and Emme couldn't help but gush over her little man when asked about him on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

Lopez, 44 -- who was on the show with fellow Idol judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban -- nearly cried while sharing a story about the note Max had written professing his eternal love for her. "It just made my whole life," the "Hit the Floor" singer said of the handwritten message, which she also posted via Instagram.

"It says, 'I'll luv you beyond forever Mom,'" she read. "I'll cry right now! Stop it! Oh my God."

Then, pulling herself together, she added, "Beyond forever. That's the line, that's it. You know, I came home, and it was on my bed and then I opened it and just left it there ... [It was] in a big manila envelope, a yellow envelope, and it said, 'To: Mom, From: Max.' And I opened it, and I was like, 'Oh my God.'"

"He's a poet!" DeGeneres said.

"He's a genius," Lopez countered. "Come on, let's be honest."

"That's amazing," Connick piped in. "I get notes from my kids, but it's like, 'I'll love you as long as you want if you give me a hundred dollars. All this 'beyond forever' stuff -- you live in some kind of fantasy world, Jennifer Lopez!" 

"My son, that's the love of my life right there," she gushed in response.
