Now We Know Where JLo Gets Her Dance Moves, from Her Mama

by Hanna Embry on

Jennifer Lopez is an absolute icon. Her acting, musical chops, and her incredible dancing has earned her well-deserved success. Because it all started with JLo, and her amazing dance career, people have always wondered where her talents came from.

But it is a mystery no longer! She gets it from her mama. Now that’s not as shocking as someone eating a $120,000 banana, but it’s still pretty cool!

JLo’s mother, Guadalupe, was celebrating her 74th birthday. In celebration of her mother, Lopez captioned her Instagram post, “People ask me where I get my energy from, my drive, my dance moves. Well, now you know… Guadalupe… my mommy.”

The caption was included with a clip of Lopez bringing her mother on stage with here during a concert. The two then begin dancing to the song ‘Hold It Don’t Drop It’ and it’s clear that incredible dance skills run in the family!

Lopez then added, “For as long back as I can remember, I can see her dancing, laughing and lighting up every room she was in. She is the definition of youthful and timeless at every age.”

Not only can Guadalupe, also known as Lupe, dance up a storm, but she can also be seen mouthing along with Lopez’ lyrics and even hitting the choreographed dance! It is clear that Lupe is her daughter’s number one fan!

But this isn’t the first time that JLo has decided to honor her mother’s influence on her life. On mother’s days past, she has shown the utmost admiration and respect for her mother through social media posts. After all, there are so many ways to show you care on social media platforms.

The singer, dancer, actress is not only incredibly talented in her own right, but is also a dedicated and caring mother to her own children. Eleven-year-old twins Max and Emme adore their mother, and JLo is constantly showing them the height of a mother’s love.
