After splitting from Casper Smart, Jennifer Lopez has thrown herself back into her music full force, even as her television duties grow more demanding and she juggles the responsibilities of being a single parent at home. Almost on the heels of Jennifer’s recent relationship failure, Lopez joined ex-husband Marc Anthony on stage for what everyone assumed was a one-time duet. Now, the former husband and wife are teaming up again and, while Lopez and Anthony may not be ready to revisit their past romance, they’re certainly heating things up on the stage and in the recording studio.
Jennifer Lopez Raves About Her Reunion With Marc Anthony
People reports that Ms. Lopez is teaming up with Marc on a new album and, though this one will be a Spanish language album, the music can certainly be enjoyed by anyone. Jennifer was overjoyed about the idea of working on Como Ama una Mujer with Mr. Anthony.
“It’s very exciting. We worked on my last Spanish album together [Como Ama una Mujer],” Ms. Lopez says. “I can’t imagine doing it without him because the only kind of foray I’ve had into this world has always been with him. It’s going to be exciting.”
The first reunion for Lopez and Anthony took place on stage, not long after Jennifer split from Casper Smart, but, while it may have seemed like a spontaneous reunion, the truth is a bit more ordinary. In fact, Jennifer reveals that she has been co-parenting her children with Marc Anthony for years and that they have been friends even longer.
“I don’t even want to say how many years we’ve been friends,” says Ms. Lopez, when asked about her friendship with Anthony.
Lopez, who is 47 years old and a year younger than Mr. Anthony couldn’t even guess how long she has known her ex-husband, but Jennifer counts Marc as one of her closest friends. For proof of the bond of friendship shared by Anthony and Lopez, one only need to look back on Jennifer’s recent Las Vegas residency. Marc and current wife, Shannon De Lima, were spotted taking in one of Lopez’s shows.
“You’re an international legend and icon, but you’re also my baby daddy,” Jennifer announced during that show, giving Marc a shoutout.
Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony Indulge in Instagram Fun
Jennifer and Marc are equally chummy on their favorite social media sites, as a recent Instagram interaction can attest. Us Weekly reports that the pair enjoyed some friendly banter, using a deer app on a new video. The magazine reveals that Jennifer and Marc made the video together, finding the deer app an amusing distraction.
“Studio shenanigans… Oh Deer!!” Lopez captioned the post.
Jennifer added hashtags to her post, indicating her thoughts and hinting at her musical reunion with Anthony.
“#makinghistory #again #funtimes, #familia LOL!!”
“You’re making history as usual,” Marc Anthony says in the video.
Lopez and Marc can then be heard laughing gleefully.
Ms. Lopez has been making more rounds to reveal her partnership with Mr. Anthony, who is the father of Jennifer’s 8-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
“I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family,” Jennifer Lopez said in a statement about the upcoming Como Ama una Mujer album.
The album, which Anthony will produce, is scheduled for a 2017 release with the first single coming out in November of this year.
In addition to her hosting duties on American Idol, Jennifer Lopez produces and stars in NBC’s Shades of Blue and will produce the upcoming World of Dance, also to air on NBC.
