On March 9, Jennifer Lopez said “yes” to her boyfriend of two years, Alex Rodriguez! Alex chose the time and place perfectly: he proposed during their romantic getaway to the Bahamas.
Jen and Alex have received tons of good wishes from fans and people who know them personally.
Jennifer’s ex-husband Marc Anthony, who had so far remained silent about the engagement, has finally said what he thinks about it.
Marc Anthony comments on J.Lo’s engagement
Marc was married to Jennifer for 10 years and they have two kids together, so such a significant event in his ex-wife’s life couldn’t leave the singer indifferent.
Us Weekly spoke to Marc and asked him if he’s happy for Jennifer and Alex. His response is exactly what you would expect – he told the magazine: “Yes, of course I am!”
The two singers are friendly exes
Jennifer was married three times and engaged four times before her current engagement, and her marriage to Marc was the most normal one.
The two singers married in 2004 and welcomed twins, son Max and daughter Emme, in 2008. The couple divorced in 2014 and negotiated a custody agreement that satisfies both of them.
In 2017, J.Lo said on Live with Kelly and Ryan that Marc is still “her best friend.” They remain on good terms and have even been spotted hanging out together as one big family: J.Lo, Marc, their kids, and A-Rod with his kids from a previous marriage.
Other divorced couples with kids could learn a thing or two from Marc and Jen!
