Lopez, who separated from husband Marc Anthony last July, told Lauer that the change in her personal life is "still fresh," adding that she doesn't know if she'll ever marry again. "It's not the time to think about [marriage] yet."
What is on her mind is her new show with her estranged spouse, "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which she continued to work on with Anthony following their separation.
"Marc and I were friends before we got married, we were friends for years," Lopez explained to Lauer of her professional relationship with Anthony, with whom she also has twins Max and Emme.
"We always loved each other and we always worked together. So, it wasn't an unnatural thing for us. It's not like he's not going to be in my life, we have kids together - he's always going to be in my life. [Q'Viva!'] really is a passion project for us," she continued.
Of course, it wasn't always easy - "we have those moments, we're human," the 42-year-old star said. "But at the end of the day, there's real love there, and there's a family there, and that comes first. At the end of the day, we also really love this project."
As for the divorce, Lopez added that she's already said it all in the September issue of Vanity Fair. At the time, Lopez mused that there are times when "we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves...To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.”
Fairly vague, but that's all fans are going to get.
"Everything I wanted to say about the divorce, I said in that article," Lopez told Lauer. "It really is our personal life. We have children. We're working together, we have a lot of love for each other, and we're human. It's not the easiest thing in the world, but I think we handle it with a lot of grace and a lot of caring and a lot of love."
