Former baseball pro Alex Rodriguez knew exactly what to get Jennifer Lopez when she turned 50 years old on Wednesday, July 24. The 44-year-old surprised her with a 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 GTS convertible and, even though J. Lo absolutely loved her gift, turns out it has been quite some time since she has been behind the wheel.
“I’m going to have to drive? It’s beautiful! I’ve never driven a car like that!” the Hustlers star hilariously told A-Rod in a new YouTube video he shared on Monday, July 29. In the 8-minute clip, Alex details the whole process that he went through to get the car for Jennifer and how the surprise went down.
“What do you get someone who already has everything?” A-Rod asked. “You have to be creative.” Creative he was! When the sports commentator’s kids — Natasha, 14, and Ella, 11 — and J. Lo’s 11-year-old twins — Max and Emme — pulled up to their mom’s driveway in her brand new vehicle, she was almost at a loss for words.
“What the hell? What is that? Oh, my God!” Jennifer said after removing a blindfold. “I’ve never had a car like this. I’ve never driven a car, period! My heart’s beating out of my chest!”
Once their kids got out of the car and the “I’m Real” singer got behind the wheel next to her soon-to-be-husband, she proceeded to take her brand new Porsche on a joy ride. “Let me see if I remember how to drive,” J. Lo joked. “I haven’t driven in so long, baby. Baby, this is so good. You’re giving me my independence back. I did not expect anything like this. This is so crazy. I felt like the party was enough!”
“I love it. I’ve never had a car before. I love it. I love it, Papi. I’m crying,” Jennifer continued, clearly excited because of Alex’s thoughtfulness. “My heart is beating so fast. I haven’t driven in so long, but that’s like a little car I can manage.”
Get ready to see J. Lo zooming around town, folks!
