Directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah recounted how they learned the shocking and painful news in a video posted to their Instagram accounts Wednesday afternoon.

In Wednesday's video, Fallah stops to acknowledge the terrible timing: Congratulations, brother, he tells his creative partner. J-LO Announced Her Words On.
