A-Rod Threw J.Lo a Star-Studded 50th Birthday Bash (& It Included a $10,000 Cake)

You only turn 50 once. So, it’s no surprise that Alex Rodriguez pulled out all the stops for Jennifer Lopez’s birthday bash.

Yesterday, the singer turned 50 years old (and proved that she hasn’t aged a day since “Jenny from the Block”). To celebrate the occasion, A-Rod enlisted the help of Gloria Estefan, who hosted a star-studded party at her waterfront mansion on Star Island in Miami.

Celebrity attendees included DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Ryan Seacrest and Ashanti, along with J.Lo’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony, and their 11-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

During the party, Lopez wore a metallic cut-out dress, which featured a lengthy leg slit. She completed the look with large hoop earrings and a high ponytail.

While Rodriguez gave a speech about his soon-to-be wife, the real fun came earlier that night when he gifted J.Lo a red Porsche convertible, which is worth a whopping $140,000. (NBD.)

Guests also indulged in a ten-tier birthday cake that was so big, it took five strong men to transport it to the party, according to TMZ.

The vanilla rum dessert was made by Divine Delicacies Custom Cakes—not only was it covered in 24-karat edible gold, but it also featured Swarovski crystals spelling out J.Lo’s name and the number “50.” Oh, and did we mention it cost $10,000?

The celebrations concluded with a fireworks display on the beach, and we can only hope that Rodriguez secured a post-4th-of-July discount.

If Lopez’s 50th birthday bash is any indication of their upcoming wedding, we can only imagine what’s to come.
