Jennifer Lopez will be marrying her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez soon— and the star is reflecting on why her previous marriages didn't work out, she even revealed in a YouTube video that she doesn't count her first two marriages.
If you don't remember, Lopez married Ojani Noa in 1997 and they got divorced in 1998, she also married dancer Cris Judd later in 2001 and they were divorced in 2002.
Her third husband was the popular Latin singer Marc Anthony, with whom she shares 11-year-old twins Max and Emme, both artists decided to part ways in 2011 and finalized a divorce in 2014 after 10 years of marriage.
“I’ve been married three times, and once was nine months and once was 11 months, so I don’t really count those,” Jennifer said in a new behind-the-scenes video on her YouTube channel. “But I was married to Marc for 10 years, with the kids. I was very young the first two times I tried to get married.”
J.Lo also talked about the motivation for getting married at such young age.
“It seems like in this life you’re always surrounded by people, you’re never lonely—but it’s very lonely. So you always want somebody with you,” she explained. “And I felt like if I got married, I felt like I would always have somebody, but that’s not how life works. That’s a bad reason to get married. The right one is when you find someone who really makes you better.”
The celeb also shared details about her wedding plans with A-rod, including their timeline for tying the knot.
"Soon. Not soon-soon, but next year," she dished. "I'd like a big wedding. And I'd like to get married in a church this time. I've never been married in a church."
