Jennifer Lopez received the Icon Award at the Billboard Women in Music event and she could not help but gush over her family during the acceptance speech! Check out the sweet thing she had to say about her fiance, Alex Rodriguez and their four kids!
J.Lo. is a superstar who is at least a triple threat in the entertainment world but, after receiving this honor, she made sure to humbly show gratitude to her loved ones, who have helped her get where she is today.
This included her mother Guadalupe, as well as her fiancé Alex Rodriguez and the ‘four beautiful kids’ they share as a blended family!
Lopez started her speech by saying that ‘Music has always, always been my passion. My mom used to put me on the kitchen table and would show me how to do the booty shake, or we’d sing the oldies, whatever was at the top of the Billboard charts at the time. Those are my first performances. It’s what inspired me to do what I’ve had the privilege to do for all of you all these years.’
She went on to add that, ‘Of course, I want to thank my beautiful family for going on the road with me, for touring with me, for supporting me, for allowing me to be the artist that I am,” Lopez gushed. “Alex and our four beautiful kids, thank you so much. I love you. Everything I do is for you guys.’
Other people who she mentioned and thanked were her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, and others she’s been working with and who have helped her make her vision a reality.
Finally, she made sure to mention her fans as well, stressing that she does what she does for them and couldn’t have done it without them.
Congratulations, Jennifer Lopez for the award!
