Jennifer Lopez's prior splits from Marc Anthony, Cris Judd and Ojani Noa apparently haven't soured her outlook on marriage.
In fact, the singer and former “American Idol” host told ABC's "Good Morning America" that she’d be open to getting hitched for a fourth time.
“For me, the biggest dream is the fairy tale,” the 42-year-old mother of twins said in an interview that aired Tuesday. "I will never give up on that dream.”
She added that her partner will have to be a tough guy, as “it can be difficult for anybody who has to stand by my side, but at the end of the day, I know that I deserve that."
Right now, the man standing next to J. Lo is her boyfriend/backup dancer Beau “Casper” Smart, who indicated that their romance took a while to blossom.
“It was just very natural, you know, natural how it happened,” the 25-year-old said. “There was nothing before, no flirting, no nothing.”
He also said that Lopez is ultimately the one who runs the show - even if he is helping to choreograph her moves behind the scenes.
“Sometimes, I tell her something, you know, give her notes,” Smart said of their working relationship. “But at the end of the day, you know, it doesn’t matter what position is what, because she’s the boss, you know?”
Lopez told "GMA" that she doesn’t mind taking direction from her man because she’s had lots of experience working with significant others.
“It’s all right,” she said. “I have done it many times and it’s difficult with some people, and some people, it’s easy. Just depends on their personality.”
Clearly things are going well - Smart is currently the chief choreographer of J. Lo’s world tour with Enrique Iglesias.
c-mon JLO what 's going on with your life? Think about 20 years from now what will happen to your relationship. Remember what your mother told u. I'll say forget about getting marry and have FUN cuz u'ar INLOVE..
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

I guess she cant stand to be without a man.But hey she aint gettin any younger .and come on guy grow some balls i thuight there was no boss in a relationship.stand up for your self .
Just plan nasty...how can anybody in their right mind compare JLo to Elizabeth Taylor is beyond comprehension!!! Elizabeth Taylor, was beautiful, and had class. JLo has neither...she's just plan ewww. She's so narcissistic, women cant wait for the ink to dry on her divorce papers nor the her bed sheets to cool...already involved with a 'boy'...just plan nasty. Why can't she concentrate on being a mother for once..what kind of of example is she giving her kids, shame on her...
" She's the boss,,,",,,,and don't you forget it Babalu !
Hope J. Lo's life is going well because after attending the show last week in Toronto, Casper's going to be needing a new job. His choreography routine for the dancers was yawn – boring!! If the world tour with Enrique Inglesias (ei) lasts the test of time, it will be a miracle. Very disappointed with the J. Lo part of the show.
I promise you this, This is Elizebeth Taylor No. 2. At the end of the day, WATCH, He will walk and I promise, He is going to get paid. I blame her. She canNOT be without a MAN/Boy. She can't be alone, How sad and MOTHER AWARD!!!! Oh, Hell No.... She is NOOO Mother, The Nanny is, Period....Sad but true....
Can't this woman be without a man for five minutes? What a narcissist!!
What a shock..she's he boss.
Marc Anthony's clothing line is pretty cool. I wonder if Casper wears any of his clothes? I have a few of his shirts! lol Anyways...
JLo got that good poosay. I KNOW! I hit it. Believe me yall....Casper's a lucky guy and P Diddy, Marc, Ben and all the other motherfukkuhz are missing that good poosay! Much ATL Luv JLo and Casper – You Da Man!
Yeahhhm surrre ya did, Ace....and what kind of a name is "Ace" anyhow?? I know!!... some dude with a small wee who is trying to impress people by saying he rolled in the sack with JHo. lmao....Dude, I am "almost" embarrassed for you....grow up and stop making up stories to appear that you're something you are not...you def have small wee syndrome, hahaha
You're just plan nasty...you'll probably fall in...awhahahaha
Ace or what ever you call yourself...One, go back to school and learn how to write complete sentences. You think you sound so cool, you don't....two, you're just plain disguising, I can't imagine any girl in their right mind would think your charming...however, I'm always in the mood for a good laugh....
Good for you JLo, You look fantastic, keep up the good work & honey if I had a man like Casper I would be all over that.
She is ridiculous – age 42 mother and 3-time divorcee and canoodling with a 25 y/o. The romance? When you are a mother, your children are first – Not romance, or any man. Same with Madonna- these 2 former pop-tarts are past their prime & hanging on for dear life to being "hot and in demand". Please, move over, the young women are already here. Gotta hang it up, or you look ... ridiculous
I agree that she should concentrate on her kids and not on a man half her age. It's like she's afraid to be alone. Jennifer should embrace her age and stop trying to compensate with a younger man. With age comes maturity and wisdom and i find it hard to beleive she actually has a deep meaning relationship with a 25 year old.
While I agree that Ms. Lopez has MANY more things she should be prioritizing right now your comment that she is "old" is what is ridiculous here.
She is in great shape, looks awesome and you can't take that from her with a sad little snipe like yours.
She should have stayed with MA, even though he cheated on her. That's what men do, no matter who you are. She will soon be a washed out has been, have to take what she can get.
really .Stay with a guy even though he cheated on you? Guess your talking from experience or you found a time machine and just came in from the 1800's.
Love Discriminates Not. Age Is Just A Number. The Relationship Or Marriage Is Based On Two Individuals, None Of Anyone's Business and JLO is not the average 42 year old you find on the street. She is more fit than a 20 year old. He Choices are Her Business. We own our own lives.
Ben Affleck was very smart in having cut the cord on Bennifer . . .
Of course she'll get married again, she will need the press since American Idol fired her. In this picture, she looks like Casper's mother. She is a low class no talent has been hack. She can't act, sing, dance, design clothes or raise kids.
You're A Sick DOG!
You seem to hate the woman without really knowing her. Can you do what she does at age 42? Personally, I don't think she sings very well, but she can dance and act pretty good. She's probably laughing all the way to the bank and you... you seem to be miserable.
i really don't think she cares what anyone thinks of her(just sayin)....
Really Jennifer you are 17 years older than this young kid, (Casper) you could actually be his mother, maybe you should grow up, especially since you now have children... (I'm just saying)
RIGHT?! SHE is the real ruiner of marriage, not the gays
you right she should take some time off. lol
Some people should never get married...and my dear you are one of those people! I think 3 times is enough!
This fool never learns from the first 3 times...where she had a strong man. She needs to be by herself and like it versus changing men like underwear. Another poor role model of a Mom.
whoever you fall in love with you should protect the assets. if your lover gets offended then you need to question the relationship. there is nothing wrong with that especially the way the world is nowadays. buy each other gifts, do stuff and just love each other...simple.
I've lost so much respect for jlo. She needs to just sit down somewhere. She is being extremely selfish and not behaving like a mother should. Jumping from man to man with no regard for the example she's setting for her children. Besides, I think her boyfriend is gay. Watch & see. Hopefully in the future her and Marc can patch things up and get it together.
We all agree with jack.
She should remarry, the right man.
This guy seems aggressive. Tight jaw line...he may end up roughing her up. I hope her kids are safe around him. Very likely he will dump her in no time after he establishes a little money for himself. She is so naive....she should have an air-tight pre-nup or she will have to dance around for another twenty years just to pay her bills.
alumette: Like you'd know. LOL
do you just normally assume things? thats too funny!
She don't look so great in my opinion. Someone earlier commented they both look like vampires.
i hope she does a show in NY will be there
I think she likes hanging onto the "fairy tale" as she calls it so she'll never have to make a real commitment. I feel sorry for her kids. She's a lame example of how to be a responsible adult.
she looks great on her way to another tour, enjoying her time with this guy. they connect that's all that matters.
Puerto Ricans are trashy. The lot of them, but especially the East cost based PRs.
You are the real garbage here, Diamond Dave. It is one thing to say that this Jlo witch gives Puerto ricans a bad rep but to judge them all over some stupid J HOe, you are the trash
Being racist is trashy, and shows you are an unintelligent person!
Come on, don't you think that's a bit harsh? Everybody is being so hard on her, it makes me want to take her side enough to post. I like JLo, always have. I'm glad she was smart enough to choose Marc Anthony as the father of her children instead of one of her boy toys. Smartest move she ever made.
Why would she marry a man with no money and half her age? He must think he has hit the big time, and she must be hating the fact that she is 42. I think she should wake up and dump the back up dancer, she looks like a fool.
my parents have just celebrated 50 years(thank God) of wedded bliss and said the key to hold any relationship together friendship and especially marriage is accepting of one another. the celebration i held for them recently - all my friends said gotta admit it they still look good after 50 years! If your mother leaves the table he looks for her, she looks for him..its still there after all these years. love you c & c
She is looking for her fairy tale! Marriage is not a fairy tale. Marriage is learing to accept that it is also a life of "responsibilities and details" and not always perfect. And it takes hard work that alot of people are not willing to do!
Jennifer doesn't appear to be in a rush. i know many 42 year olds that look like old rags, alot of guys at 42 look like old rags also...she's looks fantastic, great figure, and has a young guy...so what have fun..
. . . In the mean time, her baby girl says . . ."If my mom can have 4 husbands, I will have 8! " . . .
Perhaps Lopez should wait until someone comes up with a Hubby of the month club, as she seems to have a little bit of trouble with that long term commitment thing.
she is so hot hot hot !!!
Oh yeah! A 42 year old that can attract a 25 year old. He's lucky to be getting some of that before it starts sagging.
Hey Juju, her butt's still tight as a snare drum!
That lipstick is gonna leave a ring!
Jennifer Lopez is a spoiled over-hyped, over-exposed, overpaid, under-talented narcissist. She can't get enough publicity and a fourth marriage will just play into that.
getting an education would not hurt. Maybe she could stop focussing on herself for a few years. She is vulgar and narcissistic. Not a progressive woman in any way.
The romance took time to blossom?? She got with him right after Mark Anthony!! She needs professional help, somethings no right. Mid aged woman with two kids, the kids should be her focus, yet she's always photo'd with this young kid. He probably can't believe his luck, 1 year of marriage and he'll be a millionaire!!
You are 200% correct!!! I was just having this conversation with family the other day. A family member told me that she thought she was beautiful and that she loves her twins very much. I agreed that she is beautiful but a week after she left Marc Anthony she is on the beach with her children and this new guy. I am not saying that she shouldn't get away to clear her mind but why should she subject her children to a new "uncle or dad" whatever you want to call him if they are trying to cope with the fact that Daddy and Mommy are not together. What a selfish move!! Obviously her children are not number one on the priority list. She is no Katie Holmes or Sandra Bullock that's for sure. These women when they went through their divorce have a lot more self respect and have their children high on their list of priorities.
Jennifer needs to stop trying to rush into marriage. Look back, this would be her fourth marriage. After the first 3 marriages didn't work out I don't think she should be pressed to get married again. Stop being so desperate. Focus on your kids and career. I can understand everyone wants companionship but really another marriage especially so soon would probably end. They can date and cohabitate with one another but don't take that step again...
i agree especially if 1 has been married already–
the next relationship should be slow, easy and focus on what the other wants and just be together...its not that difficult.
she is insecure and the new guys feed her need for acceptance. Her vanity is ridiculous.
who really cares?? there are more important things in this world to be concerned about. the sick, the poor, the hungry
you are correct!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously why is she so quick to rush into marriage again. She should take time to get to know this little boy. After all, he could be a troll. Being married to a troll is hard work.
get mad and jab me all you want, with all your might...you are not a t. xo mtgs all day.
i don't think jlo is worried about what we think of her right now..she looks great, getting ready for another tour and has t his guy. she's fine.
stop=i stop. apples and oranges.
you r going back jlo.
Time to face facts sweetie, you're youthful years are gone. Paying for a boy toy won't bring it back either. As soon as he has enough of your cash and connections in his pocket, you are history.
Insane= Doing the same thing over and over and expecting diffrent results.
my clients call me a persistant pain in the ass...maybe so.
Bow down to me I am no longer te mighty Jebus. I am now the almighty Jebus Christ. The new leader of Christians
what a fool, lost respect for her........
You had respect for her to begin with?
Just let them be happy. She's a free spirit and sometimes makes rash decisions but live, learn, be free!
shes a joke
Jennifer, just hold off marriage and enjoy being single and free. #realtalk
i love pouty lips and dark lipstick..drives me nuts!
Not to mention her big, tight a$$
He is just a baby. Never get married in the honeymoon stage. That's her problem....
Ah, he's just as good a choice for her 4th ex-husband as anybody else dumb enough to step into that role.
Never marry your boy toy. Look at what happened to Demi.
You are totally right!! just enjoy the moment and that's it. that lil boy is not gonna stick forever. i wonder how many baby daddy's she is going to collect in her lifetime lol
They look like vampires.
That's funny, I thought the same thing!
me too...i though that also! that is so funny
She can suck my blood or anything else!
