Alex Rodriguez honors Jennifer Lopez's 50th birthday with sweet video

Someone pass the tissues! Alex Rodriguez paid tribute to his fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, on her birthday with a heartwarming Instagram post on Wednesday, July 24.

Lopez’s 50th birthday got off to a great start, as her husband-to-be shared a sweet montage video to celebrate the occasion.

The clip opened with a loving message from the former New York Yankees player. “Hi, baby girl. Just wanna wish you a happy birthday,” Rodriguez, 43, began. “I cannot believe this baby girl. Since we’ve been together, you have made me feel like every day is my birthday. Thank you for your passion and your energy and your inspiration, and your endless pursuit to be the best at everything that you do.”

Rodriguez continued to praise the Grammy winner, adding: “You’re simply the best partner in life. The best daughter. The best mother. The best performer. We love you. Your fans love you. Your children love you. And I love you. Let’s make this birthday a very special one.”

He concluded his message by saying, “Te quiero mucho."

Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words. . From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead. . Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day. . Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤️ . Te amo mucho, Lola. . - Macho 13 @jlo
The best times are with these lil ones... 🙏🏼🌟 #ilovechristmastime #familia
About last night... Perfect way to start the year... Love that they still wanna fall asleep in Mama’s arms ♥️♥️🙏🏼
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. ❤️

Today has an entirely different meaning to me than I did when I first became a father to Tashi and then my Ella Bella. It’s an incredible responsibility, and one I have always treasured. But as I grow older and proudly watch them doing the same, not only are my kids my pride and joy and number one priority - now they also motivate me. Every day, Tashi and Ella make me a better dad and a better person. Being a father is the greatest job in the world, more than any career I could have dreamed of as a kid. To all the fathers out there, never stop trying to be the best. I don’t. #HappyFathersDay

The nearly two-minute clip featured several intimate shots, including one of the couple with their kids — Lopez’s 11-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian, and Rodriguez’s daughters Ella, 11, and Natasha, 14 — sweetly gathered in bed together. Additionally, footage of the pair at the Met Gala in May, the singer performing during her It’s My Party tour and many moments of the duo locking lips also appeared.

In the loving tribute’s caption, Rodriguez thanked Lopez “for inviting all of us to share this special day with you.” The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer, meanwhile, left an adorable response in the comments section.

“I’m crying …. I love our life … I love you so much,” she replied. “Thank you, my beautiful Macho.”

The athlete’s birthday tribute to the Hustlers star comes several weeks after he comforted her after a “tough show” on her tour. In the “It’s My Party Tour Diary: Volume One” Youtube video, a tearful Lopez was highly critical of her performance until Rodriguez reassured her that it was the “best show I’ve seen so far.”

“You guys killed it! And you showed why you’re a champion, baby,” he said in the July 6 clip. “You were down and you still came back up and had the best show.”

Lopez and Rodriguez began dating in 2017. The MLB Tonight commentator later proposed in March with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring valued at $1.4 million.

A source told Us Weekly on Wednesday, July 24, that Lopez “feels like she finally met her match and that he is really ‘The One’ she was destined to be with.”
