And the Jenny from the Block hitmaker was hoping to be able to pay the ultimate tribute to her dad David Lopez, by buying his favourite baseball team, the New York Mets, with her fiancé Alex Rodriguez.

Unfortunately, the celebrity couple had to pull out of the bidding, with Jennifer expressing her disappointment in a now-deleted post on Instagram.

The star wrote: "Alex and I are so disappointed!! We worked so hard the past 6 months with the dream of becoming the first minority couple and the first woman owner to buy her father's favourite Major League Baseball team with her own hard earned money. We still haven't given up!"

Throughout Jennifer's career, Guadalupe in particular has always been incredibly supportive, and has appeared at red carpet events with the singer, and is often in the audience at her concerts and during any live interview that J-Lo takes part in.

The star's younger sister Lynda, meanwhile, is a star in her own right, and released her debut book, AOC, in August. Lynda was supported by her famous sister, who shared details of the book with her 130million followers on Instagram.
