Jennifer Lopez brought her mom Guadalupe Rodríguez onstage to dance it out for her 74th birthday
Jennifer Lopez is 50, gorgeous, still dancing full-out, and rocking a body like a 21-year-old, and now we know where she gets it from. In honor of her mom Guadalupe Rodríguez’s 74th birthday, J.Lo brought her mother onstage during a concert to bust a move, and Guadalupe killed it.
In a video posted to J.Lo’s Instagram, Guadalupe is seen singing along to her daughter’s 2007 song “Hold It Don’t Drop It,” totally living it up in the audience, when J.Lo surprises her and pulls her onstage. “Are you ready?” J.Lo asks the audience. “My No. 1 fan happens to be in the audience tonight. It happens to be her birthday, too. Say hello to my mother! My mom!”
Without missing a beat, Guadalupe charges the stage, and like she’s rehearsed it for months, busts out the choreography alongside her daughter. Guadalupe Rodríguez is everything we want to be as a woman.

After Guadalupe commands the stage, Jennifer gives her mom a gigantic birthday cake and caps the heroic video with a hug. We’ve always gawked at J.Lo’s youthful glow and vibe, and clearly — she gets it from her mama.
“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,” J.Lo captioned the video.

Jennifer shared a video of her mom dancing her heart out in an August 2019 tribute post to her late Aunt Rose, and Guadalupe truly demonstrates what it means to be in love with life.

Today we lay to rest my Titi Rose… we will lay her next to our beloved uncle, as was her wish, who were married their whole lives and had three beautiful daughters @tdrios215, @drios818 and @trios22, my closest cousins who I grew up with who were so close we always seemed like sisters… I have so many emotions as I write this. About how fierce, tough and unapologetically herself she was… she taught me what it was to be a hard working woman…she, like the other women I was fortunate enough to be raised by taught me to be independent and unafraid of life and what it would bring! To laugh, dance, and stay close to family. And I am grateful for all she ever did for me. But I think I will remember her most like the video above laughing with her sisters and family on every Christmas birthday and random day on the set… I love you Titi, I am glad you and Tio are together again! Say hi to grandma and Titi Myrza. I love you all forever. I carry your strength and love with me always. We will make all of you proud. 🌹❤️#familia #myguardianangels #nevergonealwayswithme
What a damn queen.
