Jennifer Lopez has promised to save her 2017 Grammy Awards gown for her soon-to-be step-daughter.
The singer/actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to mark the 12th birthday of Ella Rodriguez, the youngest daughter of her fiance Alex Rodriguez, and posted a sweet picture of herself embracing the young girl.
In the accompanying caption, Lopez wrote: “To my loving little Ella … the first day I met you (you were so little then…), you ran up to me, sat right on my lap, put your arms around me and asked to have my lavender dress I had just worn to the Grammys for when you grew up.”
The dress in question is a soft lilac Ralph & Russo number featuring a plunging neckline, thigh-high slit, and ruffled neck detail.
And further on in her post, the superstar revealed that she is actually saving the designer gown for Ella to have when she’s older.
“You won my heart in a split second … you’re not so little anymore but you’re still sitting on my lap and I love it!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet girl! …PS: I have the dress saved for you!!” the 50-year-old exclaimed.
In the comments section, Rodriguez posted a string of heart emojis.
Lopez and the sports star, also known as A-Rod, have been dating since 2017 and got engaged in March 2019. They have not yet announced a wedding date.
Elsewhere, Rodriguez made his own Instagram post honoring his daughter, uploading an image of the two together with the caption: “I can’t say enough about how proud I am to be your dad, Ella.”
