Jennifer Lopez always puts her family first, so it's no surprise that she decided to throw an epic celebration for her mom Guadalupe Rodríguez's 75th birthday.

J.Lo (opens in new tab) shared a video compilation of the special party she hosted for her mother, who was utterly shocked when she arrived at Lopez's house. Although the party was small, on account of current pandemic guidelines, J.Lo and Alex Rodriguez (opens in new tab) spoiled the Maid in Manhattan actress's mom in the best way.

"✨ Surprise ✨," J.Lo wrote on Instagram (opens in new tab). "Happy 75th birthday to my beautiful mommy!!! I love you so much 💕 We all do. You are the definition of being youthful and timeless at every age ... thank you for your endless love, energy, support and for just being you!!! I love you forever ♥️ #HappyBirthday #TheLupinator."

As well as hosting a special dinner with beautiful place settings, J.Lo also organized a group video call with other family members who couldn't be present, and shipped in several slot machines, as her mom is apparently a big fan.
