With friends and family by her side, Jennifer Lopez received the 2,500th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday (June 20). Looking pretty in peach and white, the singer-actress proudly accepted her star alongside beau Casper Smart, her 5-year-old twins Max and Emme, her mom and sister, and Hollywood pals such as Jane Fonda, Pitbull, and Keenan Ivory Wayans.
“Today is only possible b/c of my family, friends & fans. I’d LOVE if u could be a part of this celebration w me live!,” J.Lo tweeted, adding, “Proud little girl from the Bronx.”
While receiving the honor, ‘Jenny from the Block’ couldn’t help but fight back the tears.
“A star on Hollywood Boulevard, I said I wasn’t going to cry,” she said at the ceremony. “I really am overwhelmed – it all feels kind of, I don’t know, surreal, but so real. It’s awesome.”
She went on to thank her friends, family and fans for their “support and love,” as well as for inspiring her to “work harder and dream bigger for all that is the future.”
“I hope you feel, as I do, that it was all worth it,” J.Lo added. “I hope I have touched your hearts even in a small way from the gigantic way in which you have touched mine. Thank you so much.”View Slideshow »»
