It's a bromiliad, of which there are many species.

Your plant is a Bromiliad, possibly Guzmania, 'a variety of Bromeliad,' as Rhizo and TG said.

When Bromiliad flowers start to die, babies/off-spring grow off mom.
Do you see new sprouts? Off-spring forms nearest moms bottom. :)

Babies grow fast, so please check your plant. Sometimes, if babies are left on mom too long, they dry out.

Let us know if you see new growth? Toni
