The superstar hosted a celebration at Emilio and Gloria Estefan’s mansion in Star Island, Miami.

She attended her honorary do with fiancé Alex Rodriguez, who will also celebrates his birthday this week, turning 44 tomorrow.

Lopez, popularly known as J Lo, wore a custom-made Versace gown for the event, complete with bondage-inspired detailing including buckles, straps, cut-outs and a hip-high split.

The dress was reminiscent of J Lo’s exotic green Versace gown which she wore almost two decades ago for the 42nd Grammy Awards in 2000 – a look which, along with Liz Hurley’s safety pin dress, propelled the Versace brand to worldwide fame.

A pair of Yves Saint Laurent sandals completed her party look.

A source told the publication: "[The car] came with a big gold bow on it and was delivered to their house this afternoon.
