Jennifer Lopez is going strong with her new boyfriend, 24-year-old dancer Caspar Smart -- but that doesn't mean she's thinking about marriage again. At least not yet.
"I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. We'll see. I mean, I don't know," a visibly flustered Lopez told Matt Lauer on the Today show Monday morning, after he asked if she'd ever consider taking the plunge again.
"It's not time to think about that yet," the 42-year-old singer, who announced her split from husband Marc Anthony in July, continued. "It's still fresh."
But while she's not sure about her future marital plans, J.Lo is certain about one thing: Anthony, 43, will always be a part of her life -- both as the father to her children and her co-producer of the new reality TV competition Q'Viva, which premiered Saturday on Univision and chronicles the search for the next great Latin American superstars.
"Marc and I were friends before we got married. We were friends for years, and we always loved each other. And we always worked together, so it wasn't an unnatural thing for us to continue working together," Lopez told Lauer. "And, obviously, we have children together, so it's not going to be like he's not in my life. He's always going to be in my life."
Anthony expressed that exact sentiment on Q'Viva's premiere, where he and Lopez didn't shy away from discussing their relationship.
"We're just meant to be in each other's lives on different levels," said Anthony. "This is a long story, it's not a short story... Marriage was just one chapter... And kids are another. We've got each other for life."
Lopez told the cameras that the show is important in order to teach their twins Max and Emme, almost 4, about their cultural roots.
"It's not just to find talent," she said. "I knew when I started this trip, from the beginning, that it was going to be something special for me. Now I have kids. It's important to know more about yourself to be able to teach them more."
As for working with her ex, Lopez swore at a recent press conference that it's "great."
"We have a ball. It was the same as any other time we've worked together," said the multi-talented singer, who joked during the premiere that she and Marc were "very Sonny & Cher after the divorce."
