Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced today that they have split, but what does a JLo / Marc Anthony divorce mean for their kids?
Lopez and Anthony have been married for seven years and have two children, 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
The couple issued the following statement about their split: “”We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision, [but] we have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
We assume that means that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s child custody agreement will be amicable for the kids as well.
While it’s sad to hear, it’s not entirely new for Hollywood couples to face divorce – when both people are so famous and have different schedules, it seems difficult to hold it all together.
Still, you have to feel for the kids, who will have to adjust to their parents’ divorce. We can only hope that they truly stick to what was said in their statement and keep things amicable.
JLo and Marc Anthony’s statement continues, “It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
Were you surprised to hear that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split?
Lopez commented last month, “I’m in a really happy, good place now, and when you have babies, you feel a different kind of love to anything you’ve experienced – deeper, more profound.”
She added, “No matter how much experience you have in love, you’re always learning new things about it; you’re always going to have questions you can never fully answer. I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been in my life and my husband and my babies have everything to do with that.”
