- Jennifer Lopez just shared a video tribute for her mom, Guadalupe Lopez, on her 74th birthday.
- In the video, J.Lo brings her mom on stage to dance with her for part of a song.
- The superstar explains in the caption, and the video proves, that her energy and dance moves come from her mom.
Jennifer Lopez can bring down the house—any house—and that is a universal fact. But did you know her mom can, too? If you were a lucky audience member at one of her concerts you already do, but the rest of J.Lo's fans had to wait until today to find out.
The Hustlers star and singer just posted an adorable and epic video tribute to her mom, Guadalupe Lopez, on her 74th birthday. The video clip shows a previous birthday celebration, which included a choreographed mother-daughter dance on stage at one of J.Lo's concerts. And let me tell you, Guadalupe may be in her 70s but she did not miss one single beat. She might even have more energy than her popstar daughter (just kidding, J.Lo!).
The video shows Guadalupe waiting for her on-stage moment, singing along to J.Lo's song "Hold It Don't Drop It" and bouncing along to the beat. Then, J.Lo calls her up with a "Say hello to my mother, my mom," and the crowd goes wild. They're all in for a real treat as the dynamic duo take over the stage and dance in sync.
J.Lo shared a sweet tribute to her mama in the caption: "People ask me where I get my energy from, my drive, my dance moves lol...well now you know...Guadalupe... my mommy... for as long back as I can remember, I can see her dancing, laughing and lighting up every room she was in. she is the definition of youthful and timeless at every age... she loved music and movies and history and musicals and believed in true love... and she put all of that into me... and I am all the better for it. You made me who I am today... you’re 74 today Mommy, Beautiful as ever, alive as ever and still dancing like a teenager...thank you for loving me the way you do, for everything, for being you, there aren’t enough words, I love you forever ♥️ Happy Birthday you force of nature... #thelupinator."
Clearly, the adage "like mother, like daughter" proves oh so true for these two. And, in great news for J.Lo fans, that basically means they can look forward to at least 20 more years of booty-shaking performances from the superstar.
