Today (June 21), Jennifer Lopez‘s work in the entertainment industry was cemented (literally) with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The triple threat star braved the California sun in a Christian Dior top and coral skirt as she was recognized for her contributions to music. With boyfriend Casper Smart, ex-husband Marc Anthony and twins Emme and Max there to support, the Bronx native held back tears as she reflected on her journey.
“This all feels kind of surreal… I’m a lucky girl. My dream was always to entertain…I just wanted to be good at what I did. This landmark moment inspires me 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, and I hope that I have touched your hearts even in a small way. Jenny From the Block has a new address… on the boulevard of dreams!”
