The “Waiting for Tonight” songstress told Glamour, "My mom and sister were in Atlantic City with us on the [day she was confirmed]. Marc [Anthony, husband] was still in bed, and he goes, 'It's happening. She's on the TV. She's being sworn in.' And she's standing there with her mom. I will never forget this moment.”
Regulars at the annual Big Apple celebration, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were front and center at the 53rd annual Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City on Sunday (June 13).
Wearing a strapless white dress with a black bra underneath, Lopez looked stunning as she rode in a convertible alongside Anthony - who wore a sash declaring him as "King of the Parade" for the "Helping Build a Better Community" themed event.
