As well as her global singing career and worldwide success, Jennifer Lopez is a working mum of two, who between her singing career and role as a judge on the recently finished American Idol, also stars in and produces a cop drama called Shades of Blue on American TV channel NBC.
However, no matter how long or arduous her days juggling her different projects are, it’s her personal life that J-Lo refers to as, “by far, the hardest work I do.”
In spite of this, Jennifer posted a personal picture on her official Instagram account this week, that suggests she has found love again after a tumultuous year. The 47-year-old sent the rumour-mill into overdrive after supposedly revealing that she is in a relationship with global superstar singer Drake.
The 30-year-old ‘Hotline Bling’ hit maker is pictured cuddling up to Jennifer, who sweetly snuggles into his arms in the intimate snap. The mum-of-two was the first to post the photo, but Drake soon followed suit, posting the exact same picture to his Instagram account afterwards.
The pair were first spotted together when Drake attended two of J-Lo’s concerts back-to-back in Las Vegas. Their possible romance comes after weeks of speculation that Jennifer Lopez and her ex-husband Marc Anthony may get back together, after the former couple shared a lingering kiss on stage at the Latin Grammy Awards.
In an interview with W magazine, Jennifer got candid about her divorce from her ex-husband, the singer Marc Anthony. Opening up about how hard it has been for her she confessed, “When it comes to work, I never get tired. But with personal failures, I have thought, this is too hard. When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness.”
The Jennifer Lopez Marc Anthony divorce captured the attention of Hollywood because after seven years together and two adorable children (8-year-old twins Maz and Emme) the couple seemed in a good place.
However, Jennifer has now admitted that things were not always as good as they seemed in front of the cameras. “I hung in there for seven years,” Lopez elaborated. “I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing.”
Jennifer went on to reveal how her marriage to Marc, “wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for”. Despite the disappointment and pain, the singer has forced herself to rise above it for the sake of her children.
“It would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger” the singer explained. “But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right.”
So has all the heartbreak and hard work put Jennifer off the idea of finding a ‘Happily Ever After’? Not in the slightest! ‘Jenny from the block’ is still a romantic at heart.
“I still think about getting married and having that long life with someone” Jennifer confessed. “I love the movie The Notebook. A dream of mine is to grow old with someone.”
