Jennifer Lopez turned 50, and to celebrate, she, her fiancé Alex Rodriguez, and her friends partied in the perfect J. Lo way: With a big blowout, at the Estefan home in Miami, with DJ Khaled hosting and Ashanti singing, gorgeous decorations and cake, and fireworks. Oh, and A. Rod got J. Lo a gorgeous red 2019 Porsche 911 GTS, too, on top of that (pics here of her taking the car for a spin). Seems about right to me!

The night of the big party, J. Lo wore a gooorgeous golden dress with a bra top and multiple straps across the body—more pictures here—and A. Rod was absolutely dapper in a suit and tie. A. Rod shared pics of the kids, who were there (apparently J. Lo's twins sang to her!) and him dorky-dancing (super cute) next to his bride-to-be.

Here's the video of J. Lo and A. Rod partying it up like teenagers, complete with head-banging:

And images of the insane party from A. Rod's Instagram Stories, complete with enormous tiered cake:

And then later, J. Lo sang (no surprise) while being hoisted up and carried around by two men in sparkly suits (so, you know, just a regular day for J. Lo):

Glorious. A. Rod promised we'd get more video from the night, which guaranteed will be amazing.
