Jennifer Lopez: Will She Marry Casper Smart?By: Lindsay McCane - January 16, 2014
Will Jennifer Lopez marry her boyfriend Casper Smart? Even though she says he is “fantastic” with her twins Max and Emme, she says she doesn’t know if she is quite ready to say “I do” again.
“I’m one of those people who does not like to be alone,” she said. “I have no shame saying that at this point in my life. I think we have to own who we are.” Lopez has always preferred being in a relationship versus being single, but is unsure if she is ready to make a marriage commitment for the fourth time.
“I don’t know. We’ll see. I don’t know,” she said when asked about a possible marriage to Smart. “You know, I’ve always believed in that institution. I believe in it, but it is difficult. I’ve had my challenges, but at the same time I believe in love, and I think that is the main thing.”
She does, however, gush over how good he is with her children. “I don’t like the word father figure, but he’s fantastic with the kids and he helps me very much with my work,” she said. “It was his idea, he knew I had the idea to do ‘Same Girl,’ and go shoot that in the Bronx and he was like, ‘When are we going to be in New York again? Come on I’ll do it with you, let’s go do it. Let’s put that dream down for you.’ And he basically produced it with me, so he’s fantastic in that way.”
If you tuned into to American Idol last night, you may have noticed that Lopez has made her way back to the judging panel, after a year away from the show. “That was such a transformative year for me in so many ways,” Lopez said. “I had just divorced, I went on tour with the kids, and I left Idol. All my security blankets were gone, and I was out there doing something I had never done before.”
Lopez reveals that she wouldn’t have made it through that year if it wasn’t for the love and support that she received from her friends and family. “I was surrounded by love and family,” said Lopez.. “I really grew. My goal was not to come out the other side and just survive it but grow as a human being as well as an artist, and I felt I did. I learned a lot.”
