Jennifer Lopez celebrates 50th birthday with huge party and Porsche from Alex Rodriguez

By Sarah Walker

Jennifer Lopez threw herself the most extravagant 50th birthday party — and we’re here for it!

The superstar marked her big day on July 24 with a lavish and over-the-top bash at Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan’s Star Island estate with fiancé Alex Rodriguez by her side. The singer shared a video of the epic event on Instagram with the caption “a lil bday turn up.”

The busy mom wore a metallic cut-out dress with a thigh-high slit and her hair in a ponytail, and beamed as she danced with her 43-year-old soon-to-be hubby and partygoers.

A source told E! News the affair took place “in the backyard overlooking the water,” and featured multiple tents with modern white and gold decor.

“There are big gold balls being strung across the yard and a large gold bar," the insider dished. Lounge furniture and sofas were also set up on the property’s lawn.

The former pro baseball player shared some images from the event to his Instagram, with one showing J.Lo’s tiered birthday cake and another capturing the event’s end-of-evening fireworks display.

Along with the lavish party, the Bronx native was spoiled with some unbelievable presents, including a red Porsche 911 GTS convertible from A-Rod. The ride was delivered to the “Jenny from the Block” artist shortly before the party and came wrapped in a big gold bow.

"She took the car for a spin before the party with A-Rod and looked very excited," an insider told E! News.

The sweet present arrived just hours after Rodriguez took to Instagram to honour his soon-to-be wife.

"Hi, baby girl. Just wanna wish you a happy birthday. I cannot believe this, baby girl," he said at the beginning of the clip. "Since we've been together, you have made me feel like every day is my birthday. Thank you for your passion and your energy and your inspiration, and your endless pursuit to be the best at everything that you do."

He continued, "You're simply the best partner in life. The best daughter. The best mother. The best performer. We love you. Your fans love you. Your children love you. And I love you. Let's make this birthday a very special one. Te quiero mucho."

The “It’s My Party” artist left an adorable response to the video in the comments section: “I’m crying... I love our life... I love you so much... Thank you, my beautiful Macho.”
