How Old is Jennifer Lopez (Age)?
Jennifer Lopez will be turning 53-years-old on the 24th of July this year. This means that J.Lo will have spent the last 36 years of her life working on her career. She started acting when she was just 17 years old in a movie called My Little Girl; the same movie that made her realize her passion for acting.
So, what’s J.Lo planning for her 53rd birthday? As of right now, she has not revealed any details. However, it’s important to note that she threw a very lavish birthday celebration last year. Perhaps we’ll see her partying on an expensive yacht with boyfie Ben Affleck again this year.
How Tall is Jennifer Lopez (Height)?
Jen has modeled for many prestigious fashion magazines such as Vogue, so it might be safe to assume that her height is above average. Well, technically yes.
The average height for female Latinas is 5ft2, while J.Lo is 5ft5 or 165cm. This means that Jennifer Lopez is 3 inches taller than a typical Latina. Does that make her tall or short? It depends on you. What is certain is that Jen is as tall as these celebrities:

Does Jennifer Lopez Have Children?
Yes, J.Lo is a mom of twins! She gave birth to Emme Maribel Muniz and Maximilian David Muniz on February 22, 2008. The father of her children is singer-songwriter Marc Anthony.
Although Jen and Marc got divorced in 2014, they have remained good friends and are very civil in their co-parenting for the sake of their twins.
Here are a few fun facts about Jennifer’s kids:
- Jen nicknamed the twins “coconuts” because of how their hair looked like when they were still toddlers.
- J.Lo learned that she was pregnant with the twins while she was on tour with her then-husband Marc Anthony.
- The twin’s middle names are references to their parent’s loved ones. “David” is inspired from Jen’s father while “Maribel” was the name of Marc’s sister who passed away due to cancer.
- Emme sang “Let’s Get Loud” with her mom onstage during her Superbowl performance.
Who Are J.Lo’s Parents and Siblings?
Jennifer Lynn Lopez was born to Puerto Rican parents, David Lopez and Guadalupe Rodriguez, on July 24, 1969. She grew up with her two sisters, Leslie and Lynda, in the Bronx, New York.
Leslie is the eldest among the three while Lynda was the youngest, making J.Lo the middle child of the Lopez sisters.
Despite having an international superstar in their household, the Lopez family has managed to live a low-key life away from the media. Jennifer’s mom, Guadalupe, joins her daughter in the limelight occasionally, but she hasn’t exactly made herself a full-time celebrity mom.
Meanwhile, Jen’s youngest sister Lynda has taken a similar career path to her older sister as a media journalist. Leslie and David Lopez remain very quiet about their private lives.
Thanks to the pandemic, it has been a struggle for the Lopez family to spend time together. Jennifer reflected on this challenge during her interview with People Magazine:
“Not being able to see my mum and dad as much as we wanted, we didn’t spend the holidays together; it became the one thing we, in a way, took for granted for so long.”
Nevertheless, J.Lo’s parents and sisters continue to give her unconditional love and support. Aww! Now that’s what we call family goals.
