Born and raised in The Bronx in a Puerto Rican household, Jennifer Lopez is widely considered a Latin icon. Nicknamed J. Lo, she got her start as a professional dancer, eventually becoming a triple-threat when she launched her acting and singing careers. Her starring role in the 1997 biopic Selena brought Lopez to megastar status.

Lopez wowed critics in 1998’s Out of Sight and 2000’s The Cell, and she explored her comedic side in 2001’s The Wedding Planner and 2005’s Monster In Law. She established herself as the highest-paid Hispanic actress in Hollywood in the early aughts.

Lopez’s debut album, On the 6, and 2001’s J.Lo topped the charts. She released her seventh studio album, Love?, in 2011, which included the international hit “On the Floor.” Lopez also helms the JLo Beauty skincare line, which launched in January 2021.

Lopez was married to Cuban chef Ojani Noa for nearly a year in 1997 and to dancer Cris Judd from September 2001 to June 2002.

After her first two marriages, Lopez sparked high-profile romances with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Ben Affleck (during which the couple were dubbed “Bennifer”). After getting engaged in November 2002, Affleck and Lopez called off their wedding in September 2003 just days before they were set to say “I do.” The pair officially announced their breakup in January 2004.

Lopez subsequently moved on with Latin singer Marc Anthony, whom she wed in June 2004. Four years later, Lopez gave birth to twins Max and Emme. She and Anthony announced their split in July 2011, and the twosome finalized their divorce in June 2014. Lopez dated backup dancer Beau “Casper” Smart on-off from 2011 until 2016.

Lopez began dating baseball player Alex Rodriguez in July 2017. They became engaged in March 2019 but eventually announced their split in April 2021 after their wedding was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lopez reconnected with Affleck in May 2021 following her split from Rodriguez, rekindling their romance after 20 years apart. Lopez confirmed her engagement to Affleck in April 2022, and Us confirmed in July 2022 that the twosome tied the knot in Las Vegas. A second wedding was held one month later.

After decades in the spotlight, Lopez’s career reached new heights when she performed in the Super Bowl LIV halftime show alongside Shakira in February 2020. That same year, she received a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards for her work in the film Hustlers. She sang at Joe Biden’s 2021 presidential inauguration, addressing the nation in both Spanish and English.
