Who is his mother, Jennifer Lopez?
Jennifer Lynn Lopez was born in New York City, USA on 24 July 1969 – her zodiac sign is Leo, and she holds American nationality. She gained recognition in 1997, with her portrayal of the title character in the biographical musical movie “Selena”, written and directed by Gregory Nava, and which also starred Edward James Olmos and Jon Seda. It follows the life of the Tejano singer Selena, who was murdered by her boutiques’ manager, and head of her fan club; the movie won eight of the 14 awards for which it was nominated.
Jennifer was raised in The Bronx, New York City, alongside her sisters Lynda and Leslie, by their Puerto Rican parents Guadalupe Rodriguez and David Lopez; their father was a computer technician, while their mother was a housewife, who divorced in the ‘90s after over 30 years of marriage. Jennifer studied at Preston High School, and was physically highly active during her four years there, as she ran track for the school’s team, and was also on its softball team. It was also around this time that she became interested in acting, and started appearing in school plays.
Jennifer was five years old when she took on dancing lessons, learning various styles in her teen years, including jazz, ballet and flamenco. She didn’t attend college, but focused on her career as a dancer, so her parents told her to leave the house, and her mother didn’t speak to her for nearly a year.
She attracted some attention in 1990, when cast to play Fly Girl in the comedy series “In Living Color”, and after she played a supporting character in the comedy series “South Central” in 1994, she found her own agent, and began appearing in various other series and movies, such as the drama “Second Chances”, the independent drama movie “My Family”, and the comedy film “Jack”. In 1997, she was cast to star alongside Jon Voight and Ice Cube in the horror movie “Anaconda”, while later that year she starred in the crime movie “U Turn”, and then the 1998 crime comedy movie “Out of Sight”.
She launched her singing career in May 1999, with the release of her debut single “If You Had My Love”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, the first time since Britney Spears managed to do the same. On 1 June 1999, Jennifer released her first album “On the 6”, and continued to focus more on music, although still staying active in the film industry.
In 2000, she starred alongside Vincent D’Onofrio, in the psychological thriller movie “The Cell”, and on 23 January 2001, her second album was released, entitled “J. Lo.”, which topped the US Billboard 200 Chart. A couple of her following roles were in the 2001 romantic comedy movie “The Wedding Planner”, in which she starred alongside Matthew McConaughey, the 2002 thriller movie “Enough”, and the same year the romantic comedy movie “Made in Manhattan”.
Jennifer has been making music and starring in movies to this day, and is currently shooting for the upcoming romantic comedy movie “Marry Me”.
From October 2011 to August 2016, Jennifer was in a relationship with the dancer Casper Smart, and from February 2017 to March 2021, with the baseball player Alex Rodriguez; the two had become engaged in March 2019, but that’s as far as it went.
Jennifer is a philanthropist, who has donated millions of dollars to various charity organizations. She’s a supporter of the LGBT community, and today also supports the movement Black Lives Matter.

It was in 1993 that he decided to focus entirely on making salsa music, and his second album, “Otra Nota” was released in the same year, making him a salsa star. He released his third album “Todo a su Tiempo” in 1995, eventually certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), as it has sold more than 800,000 copies. In 1999, he released the album “Marc Anthony”, and it peaked at #8 on the Billboard Albums Chart, and was eventually certified triple platinum (selling over three million copies).
In 2001, Marc released the album “Libre”, and the following year saw him release the album “Mended”; his following albums were “Amar Sin Mentiras” in June 2004, “Iconos” in May 2010, and “3.0” in July 2013.
Marc hasn’t been very active in the music industry since September 2016, when he toured around the US.
He launched his acting career in the ‘90s, and gained recognition with his portrayal of supporting characters in the movies “Hackers” and “The Substitute”. In 2001, Marc starred alongside Salma Hayek in the feature film “In the Time of the Butterflies”, while a couple of his following roles were in the 2004 action thriller movie “Man on Fire”, the 2006 biographical movie “El Cantante”, and the 2011 reality series “Q’Viva! The Chosen”.
