Jennifer Lopez is open to getting married again

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.

    Just plan 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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
