Jennifer Lopez started her journey as a dancer and started appearing in music videos and stage performances. She soon won a national competition and earned quite a number of small acting jobs subsequently. Her first big break was when she had to play the title role in Selena (1997) and ever since then kept rising like a Phoenix.

As expected, love happens with every human. J.Lo has individually been through three marriages and one high profile relationship. The Anaconda (1997) is a mother and has been a divorcee thrice now. Read on as we dive into her family life and perhaps the reasons for her three failed marriages.
Ojani Noa (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: February 22, 1997 – January 1998
Lopez’ first marriage was a brief one to a waitress, model and fellow actor, Ojani. After their divorce, Noa posed as a threat over and over again to the actress as he was only interested in casting ‘negative light’ on her person until the court came to her rescue by issuing a permanent injunction.
After the divorce from Noa, Lopez was involved in a high profile relationship to rapper Sean “Puffy” Combs. They allegedly committed a crime that caused Puffy to be arrested. Shortly after he was acquitted of all charges, Combs confirmed that he and the pretty Lopez were now separated.

Cris Leenon Judd (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: September 29, 2001 – June 2002
Year of Birth: 1969
The former American Idol Judge soon started another relationship with Cris Judd, a dancer who appeared in the video for her hit single “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”. They eventually got married but just for months. Following her second divorce, J-Lo started with Ben Affleck. Judd is now married to Kelly Wolfe with whom he has a daughter.
Affleck is an entertainment star in his own right but is majorly in the acting niche. The Gigli (2003) co-star had his own share of time with the Booty singer. They were both in a seriously publicized relationship and were engaged to be married. Unfortunately, ‘Bennifer’s’ wedding was cancelled just four days before the ceremony in September 2003.
Marc Anthony (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: June 2004 – 2014
Date of Birth: September 16, 1968
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
Jennifer’s most recent marriage was to the salsa icon Marc Anthony. He is also the father of her adorable fraternal twins. Before meeting The Boy Next Door (2015) actress, Anthony was previously married and was a father to Ariana with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado; and sons Cristian and Ryan with ex-wife Dayanara Torres. Anthony also divorced his third wife Shannon de Lima of three years. His divorce from Lopez was finalized with the superstar singer retaining primary physical custody of the twins.
Maximilian David and Emme Maribel Muniz (fraternal twins with Marc Anthony)
Date of Birth: February 22, 2008
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
After Jennifer moved from Bronx, New York to Los Angeles, things changed and the Hollywood lifestyle was alien to her. It took a while for her to get used to the ‘City of Angels’ but she is now fond of it. One thing however that the Dance Again star says is that all the strength she needed for life was gotten from her neighbourhood in Bronx. She was raised by disciplined parents and learned early the importance of hard work.
Now that she is a mother to these fraternal twins, Lopez hopes she can set a good example for them, teaching them good work ethic. Mama Lopez has got a pretty busy schedule but is not one to not create time for her babies. Emme and Max are total mini-mes of their famous parents. Indeed, Jennifer Lynn Lopez almost has it all, a mother badge along with fame and fortune.
