J.Lo Celebrated Her Birthday in a Bikini in the Bahamas (and with the Sweetest Message from A-Rod)

In case you missed it, ageless beauty Jennifer Lopez turned 49 yesterday. 

We'll let that sink in: She's 49 and she looks like that

To mark the occasion, she posted an Instagram of her "current birthday situation," which essentially means being surrounded by friends and family on the beach in the Bahamas and wearing the hell out of a tiny black-and-white bikini.

For his part, the superstar's boo, A-Rod, posted a super-sweet Instagram of his own. The caption? "When we were kids, birthdays were exciting because it was all about the gifts we would be getting. A new bat, dance shoes, maybe a new CD (yes I’m old!). I see firsthand how that’s changed for Jennifer, and how she’s found joy in sharing with others. For someone who has been about giving everything she has 365 days a year—to our children, our families, the world—I hope today, we can give you all the happiness you deserve. I love you mucho Macha 13. ❤️" Swoon

Here's to many more vacations, love letters and smoking-hot swimsuits.
