Actress, singer, dancer, performer, businesswoman, and living legend Jennifer Lopez just turned 50, if you can believe it. As one of the hardest-working people in entertainment, there is so much to praise her for: Her incredible performing skills, her classic movies, her timeless hits. But Lopez is also one of the most inspiring celebrity moms we know, and so, on the occasion of her 50th birthday, let’s look at a few of the ways she’s inspired us to be better moms.
Lopez and her then-husband, singer Marc Anthony, welcomed twins Emme and Maximilian in 2008. Since then, Lopez and Anthony have divorced, although the former couple has remained on good terms. In February of 2017, Lopez began dating Alex Rodriguez, who has two daughters of his own. After becoming engaged in March of 2019, the couple has worked hard blend their families together, resulting in a beautiful family life for Lopez, Rodriguez, and their four children.
Here are five ways Lopez continuously inspires to live our mom lives to the fullest.
She’s Created a Beautiful Blended Family with Fiancé Alex Rodriguez
Lopez is mother to twins Emme and Max, whom she shares with her ex, Marc Anthony. But she is also now a stepmom to baseball star Alex Rodriguez’s two daughters, Ella and Natasha. Lopez and A-Rod’s beautiful blended family is a constant source of joy and inspiration for us.
She Allows Her Kids Into Her Crazy World
Lopez is currently on tour, but that doesn’t mean family takes a backseat. She frequently shares photos of her kids backstage and on the road with her. J.Lo is a true inspiration to all moms seeking to find that perfect work-life balance.
She Is a Co-Parenting Legend
Even though Lopez and the father of her children, Marc Anthony, have been divorced since 2014, the former couple still visibly works hard to support their children and each other. We find it heartwarming to see them showing public love and support for each other while trying to raise a family.
She Never Stops Working on Herself
As one of the busiest women in entertainment, it’s a wonder Lopez finds time for herself. But she does! She works hard to maintain her physique, which is no easy feat at 50 (or any age for that matter). Mamas really can do it all!
She Is Honest With Her Kids and Her Fans
Earlier this year, Lopez shared a video in which she let her kids ask her anything they wanted. We loved the video for its candor and humor. It’s so refreshing to see a high-profile mom let her guard down. Her kids seem to appreciate it, too!
Those are just five of the ways Jennifer Lopez inspires us on the daily! Happy birthday, Legend! Here’s to another 50 years of Jennifer Lopez greatness!
