Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are the model of staying friendly with an ex, and their latest harmonious gathering this weekend was in honour of their twins’ seventh birthday. Snapping a selfie with Max and Emme, the former couple gathered happily as a family for their kids’ special day.
“Party Time!!! HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY TO THE COCONUTS!!!" Jennifer, 45, wrote in a sweet snapshot shared on Twitter and Instagram of her and Marc with their children. “#thesetwoknowhowtoparty #Twins #LOVE #familia.”
Jennifer and Marc, who split in July 2011, reportedly created a Minecraft-themed party for their children, based on the hit videogame. A source told E! Online that there were several gaming stations, a giant bouncy castle and Minecraft-inspired treats for guests to snack on. Among those at the party was Jennifer’s father David, who posed for a sweet Instagram photo with his famous daughter.
The party is further proof that Jennifer and Marc bare no ill feeling towards each other – particularly when it comes to Max and Emme.
“There’s still love there and I think that’s a big statement for people to see,” Jennifer revealed in her HBO documentary in January. It says we’ve moved on and we’re healthy We took this journey and we’re better. We survived.”
Jennifer and Marc were married for 10 years before their divorce was finalised in June 2014. Singer Marc, 46, married model Shannon de Lima in November 2014 – and Jennifer is confident she too will find her happy ever after.
“I still believe in the fairytale,” Jennifer said, when asked about her single status at the start of the year. “The more I work on myself, the more I give myself the opportunity to share a really deep and meaningful relationship that can give me my fairytale and last forever.”
It seems the star might have found her Prince Charming. According to recent reports, Jennifer has since rekindled her romance with former flame Casper Smart.
