ARod got JLo a car for her birthday!

Alex Rodriguez and J.Lo are downright adorable in a new video the former MLB star posted to his YouTube channel on Monday. In the almost nine-minute clip, A. Rod is shown secretly plotting with J.Lo’s twins, Max and Emme, 11, along with his own two kids, Ella, 11, and Natasha, 14, to think up an epic birthday gift for the woman who has everything.

But what do you get for the woman who has it all? Well, first you get her a wild birthday party, but if you really want to surprise her, you get her a car. A Porsche to be exact. Especially because if she hasn’t driven in over 20 years, she probably won’t be expecting it.

ARod shared a preview of the big moment on his Insta account and it’s honestly just way too cute how excited he was to do this for his sweetheart.

J.Lo totally didn’t see it coming either. Literally. Because her sweet fiancé led her around the house in a blindfold while all four kids rolled up (slowly, friends) in her new red car blasting 50 Cent’s “In Da Club.”

Like, why are they so perfect?

There are so many endearing things about the video, from the family dynamic which is clearly so strong, to watching J.Lo’s sincere reaction. It was nothing but gratitude and joy as she shouted, “I’ve never had a car like this!” and nervously took it out for a spin.

But what was even cuter than watching the megastar try to remember how to operate a vehicle was the love shared between her and her fiance. It’s clear from how much thought A. Rod put into the surprise, to documenting the moment, and getting the kids involved, that his love for her is real. That part is no real surprise, though. The couple has a long history of being uber-adorable in public.

Also, let’s not forget that she had the actual party of the century to ring in the big 5-0.

We’re a little bummed to have not been invited TBH.

In their two years together, they haven’t been shy about talking about how much they care for each other. Last August, when she accepted her VMA award, she called him her “twin soul.” The same night, he became an instant meme when he was caught on camera recording her performance and cheering her on.

A. Rod’s gift was more proof of how he feels and it’s clear from watching the video that the gift was much more than a car. “You gave me my independence back, baby!” J.Lo says joyfully while cruising the neighborhood next to her beau. It might sound like a strange sentiment coming from a woman who has enough money to do whatever she wants but when you’re used to being driven around, driving yourself probably feels like a novelty.

It’s almost shocking to watch a star as huge as Lopez freak out about getting any gift, even an insanely expensive car. But the thing about J.Lo is that she’s still pretty damn down to earth after all these years in the public eye. It really seems like no matter what she does, she never steers too far from her roots.

She really still is Jenny from the Block — and now, she’s got the wheels to cruise it, too.
