July 5 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lopez, Hoda Kotb and Jessica Biel made Fourth of July a family affair.

Lopez and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, Kotb and her partner, Joel Schifferman, and Biel and her husband, Justin Timberlake, were among the stars to celebrate the holiday Thursday with their respective children.


Rodriguez shared a photo Thursday on Instagram of his and Lopez's blended family. Rodriguez is dad to two daughters, 14-year-old Natasha and 11-year-old Ella, while Lopez is mom to 11-year-old twins, daughter Emme and son Max.

"Today, we all celebrate the amazing freedoms we have as Americans. From our family to yours, have a happy and safe #July4th holiday everyone!" Rodriguez captioned the post.

Lopez and Rodriguez got engaged in March after two years of dating. Lopez said in a video in June she wants to marry Rodriguez at a big church wedding.

"Happy Fourth of July, everybody! This is always a great day in the Obama family: a chance to celebrate America -- and Malia's birthday, too. Hope all of you are able to get some time with friends, family, and fireworks," Obama wrote.
