Jennifer Lopez talked about her divorce from Marc Anthony on last Friday’s Katie show. The singer and former American Idol judge explained she did put twins Max and Emme, 4, under consideration first.
Lopez, 43, told Katie Couric, “You never want to break up a family. That wasn’t my dream. My dream was for us to always be together. But things don’t work out, and you feel like it’s the better choice. If I didn’t feel it was the better choice, I wouldn’t have done it, you know?”
As for co-parenting the former couple are handling it well. She stated, “We’re doing good with it. We love our kids and we have love for each other and we always will. We were friends from before and we’re friends now.”
She also talked about Casper Smart – who is 18 years younger than her.
“It’s hard for me to think of my age. I feel very youthful. And I feel very comfortable in my own skin. And it’s funny, until somebody brings it up, I don’t think we really think about it. We’re enjoying each other’s company and he’s a great support system and he’s great at what he does.”
As for marriage – she’s still up for it even after tying the knot three times before.
“I believe in love. I believe in marriage,” Lopez said. “I’m just trying to get it right, like everybody else.”
