Jennifer Lopez has paid tribute to her younger sister as she passed a landmark year in life – with the duo joking that they are both half their ages.
The 51-year-old chart topping star is big sister to journalist Lynda Lopez who turned 50-years-old on Tuesday.
JLo and a group of friends threw a lavish party for her younger sister at Nobu in Malibu, Los Angeles, on Monday night – with celebrations no doubt helping Lynda ring in her landmark year.
Chatting to her sister on the night, Jenny was thrilled when Lynda joked that she was only turning 26-years-old, thus cutting Jennifer’s age effectively in half also.
