Jennifer Lopez has been a household name since the mid-nineties and has given us multiple banging tunes and feel-good movies. But perhaps the most surprising thing about her? She just turned fifty years old. We know, we can't believe it either.
Over the years, aside from her gifts to the entertainment industry, J-Lo has been constantly in the headlines for something else - her tumultuous love life. She's been part of a whole host of high-profile relationships - but her current squeeze, baseball star, Alex Rodriguez, is certainly up in her good books right now.
For her milestone birthday, A-Rod dropped a cool $120,000 on his wife-to-be - and she looks pretty pleased with herself.
Born in 1969 in The Bronx, New York, Jenny From The Block has had an incredible career.She rose to fame playing the lead role in the 1997 Selena biopic, and, since then, has had an incredible array of hit songs and movies.
In recent years, she's taken a backseat on the acting and singing.But she's still a regular on our screens, particularly thanks to her role as a judge and coach on American Idol.
But there's another reason that J-Lo is a household name.

The pair had one of the very first messy celebrity divorces that have now become a staple of celebrity culture - so we have a lot to thank them for!
Following this divorce was her first of a string of power-couple pairings.

Diddy and Lopez also had a messy breakup, involving Diddy's eventual arrest for involvement in a shooting in Times Square.

After her second divorce, Lopez began dating actor Ben Affleck.The pair shared one of the very first celebrity couple names - Bennifer. Although the pair were set to marry in 2003, they ended up postponing their wedding just a day before, eventually splitting in January 2004.
Very quickly after breaking up with Affleck, Lopez began dating childhood friend, Marc Anthony.

In 2007, the pair announced that they were pregnant.

Three years later, though, in 2011, Anthony filed for divorce.

But that casual fling was quickly put to an end in 2017.In February of that year, Lopez met New York Yankees baseball player, Alex Rodriguez, and the pair quickly began dating.
People were pretty excited about the match.
