Jennifer Lopez joined husband Marc Anthony as he led the 53rd Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York on Sunday.
Anthony was a last-minute addition after actor Osvaldo Rios was asked to step down as the King of The Parade because of a 2004 domestic violence conviction.

The singer had planned to make a brief appearance at the street celebration, but cleared his schedule for the day so he could lead the parade – and he brought his wife with him.

The Puerto Rican superstars sat together in an open-top car.

Lopez said, “It always makes me feel incredibly proud to be Puerto Rican… It’s an amazing day.”

Her husband added, “It’s one of those life-altering moments because it was such a big part of my life… from when I was two years old.”
