Happy Birthday to the wonderful La La Anthony, who turns 34 today!
One of Hollywood’s busiest Latinas ceases to amaze us. We don’t know how the Boricua beauty juggles being a career woman, wife, mom, dear friend, etc, but she does - and she does it flawlessly. Aided by her hyper-active Instagram, we decided to show you the many faces of La La Anthony. Enjoy:
