Stars are known to splash out on extravagant gifts for their better halves, and Jennifer Lopez is no different. The singer/ actress recently shelled out $200,000 (Rs 1,42,56,100 approximately) to gift fiancé Alex Rodriguez a bright blue vintage Ford Bronco on his 44th birthday. A delighted Rodriguez immediately posted a video of his new car on Instagram as the couple went for a spin. One can hear rapper Cardi B’s song in the background. Rodriguez captioned the video, ‘Top down. Sunny day. Radio on.’
The car was personalised to suit Rodriguez’s comforts. The rare vintage car is from 1976, which means it has been restored and upgraded with modern luxuries. These include a new air conditioner, heated seats, backup camera, bluetooth stereo, diamond-stitched upholstery and LED headlights. A number 13 has been stitched on the armrest in honour of the former Yankee player’s jersey number. Rodriguez is not the only celeb name to own the car. Celebs such as Lady Gaga, Jay Leno, Simon Cowell, etc are also said to own it.
While JLo gave her partner an expensive gift, A-Rod gifted her a custom Porsche for about $140,000 (Rs 99,79,452 approximately) for her 50th birthday, which went by recently.
