Jennifer Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony have continued to work together on their new show, “Q’Viva! The Chosen,” despite their split, something the star says was not unnatural for her and her ex.
“Marc and I were friends before we got married. We were friends for years, and we always loved each other. And we always worked together, so it wasn’t an unnatural thing for us to continue working together,” J.Lo told Matt Lauer on the “Today” show on Monday morning. “And, obviously, we have children together, so it’s not going to be like he’s not in my life. He’s always going to be in my life.
“We have a lot of love for each other, and we’re human,” the 42-year-old told Matt. “It’s not the easiest thing in the world, but I think we handle [our split] with a lot grace and a lot of caring and a lot of love.”
And what about another marriage down the road?
“I don’t know,” the “American Idol” judge, who is reportedly dating dancer Casper Smart, said when asked if she’d ever walk down the aisle again.
“We’ll see,” a flustered Jennifer said, not mentioning Casper by name. “It’s not time to think about that, do you know what I mean? It’s still fresh.”
Jennifer also spoke about her and Marc’s twins, Max and Emme, who will turn 4 next month.
“They’re great, they’re wonderful. So loving and too smart for 3 years old,” she told Matt.
Matt also asked J.Lo what she hopes her kids will say when they look back on their childhood.
“That they were happy. That they felt loved,” she explained. “That they got the confidence they needed to fulfill all their dreams in life.”
