Jennifer Lopez Excludes Marc Anthony From Father’s Day Tributes, Greetings
Jennifer Lopez did not make any public greeting for her former husband, Marc Anthony, on Father’s Day.
Page Six said that the 52-year-old singer appeared to have remained “silent” about the father of her children during the special occasion.
However, the songstress honored her father, David Lopez, and fiancé, Ben Affleck, in her newsletter via OnTheJLo.com, which surfaced on Sunday.
Lopez referred to the DCEU actor as a “consistent,” “loving,” and “selfless father” in the post she published. She also stated that he cares for her twin children, “without obligation.”
Elsewhere in the newsletter, the “Marry Me” star shared that she has “had a front row seat to watching how [he] father for over a year now.”
She added that Affleck is “affectionate and engaged in every moment [the children] are with you and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful things [she has] ever seen.”
Jennifer Lopez concluded her tribute by thanking her fiancé “for all” the things he does for them. She also noted that they “appreciate and love [him] beyond measure.”
The “On The Floor” singer made another Father’s Day tribute to Ben Affleck on Instagram. The post is a clip, featuring photos and videos of the celebrity couple.
It also comes with a caption that reads, “Happy Father’s Day to the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent, and selfless Daddy ever.”
Jennifer Lopez used the hashtag, “Happy Fathers Day,” as well, before referring to her fiancé as “my love.” She then urged fans and followers to visit her platform for the “full Father’s Day post.”
The upload on Instagram has already amassed more than 2.3 million likes. It has also received over 21,500 comments, with netizens sharing heart emojis.
Hours earlier that day, Jennifer Lopez made a separate post for her father, David Lopez, on the same media platform. She shared four photos of her with the “best daddy ever,” and captioned it with a similar note to her tribute to Ben Affleck.
The post has amassed over 558,000 likes with more than 2,600 comments. Several netizens made their greetings, as well, in the comment section.
It remains unclear why Lopez did not include Marc Anthony in any of her Father’s Day tributes. But, as per Insider, she once shared in an interview that she and her former husband “are like best friends” even after their divorce.
Speaking on “Live With Kelly,” the “Hustlers” actress added that, although there were worries as they were working on an album together, it had been “awesome.”
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony tied the knot in June 2004. They welcomed their twin children in 2008, two years before renewing their vows.
The two artists shocked the world, however, when they announced their “amicable” separation in 2011. The divorce was officially finalized three years later.
