Today is Jennifer Lopez's 50th birthday, and as a tribute to the musician and actress, Miami Beach, Florida has officially named July 24 "Jennifer Lopez Day." Mayor Dan Gelber and Commissioner Michael Gongora plan to gift Lopez with the proclamation alongside the keys to the city on Wednesday night before her string of three shows at the American Airlines Arena July 25-27.
While J.Lo has proudly represented the Bronx, she has also long thought of Miami Beach as her second home, with a number of her music videos set along beaches in South Florida.
The city wasn't alone in wishing her a happy birthday, as Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGenres shared tributes too. Meanwhile, fiancée Alex Rodriguez posted a touching message to her on his Instagram.
Today the incomparable, iconic @JLo turns 50! Thank you for showing us all by example how to be ageless, inside and out. @oprah is here to greet you into this new decade. Live your best life, Jennifer—and Happy Birthday! #HappyBirthdayJLO 🎉🎂🎈 pic.twitter.com/ysX3bO6GWW— O The Oprah Magazine (@oprahmagazine) July 24, 2019
"Hi baby girl, just want to wish you a happy birthday," A-Rod said in the video he posted for her birthday. "I cannot believe this, baby girl. 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. You are 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."
In a reply, Lopez said, "I'm crying... I love our life... I love you so much."
Drake has yet to wish her a happy birthday, however.
