Marc Anthony says he’ll always love Jennifer Lopez — despite the fact, the couple is divorcing.
In his first interview about his split with J-Lo, ABC’s John Quinones asks the I Need To Know singer point blank if he still loves her.
“I’ll always love Jennifer. Yeah. I’ll always love Jennifer. She knows that and my kids know that. Jennifer is a wonderful, wonderful woman, a wonderful mother, a wonderful friend.
Thursday’s Good Morning America previewed the highly anticipated interview, which will air in its entirety during a special Nightline.
Quinones also asks Anthony if he was heartbroken when he knew his marriage was over.
“It is sad. It is sad you think of the impact of all those people who believed in you. You think about your family. You think about the possibilities,” Anthony said.
“But we realized that very, very early on that even though we are not together, this story is not over. There’s stuff to do together. There’s life to see together thru (their children) Max and Emmy.
“It’s all good.”
During the interview, Anthony also denied speculation that their marriage ended because of infidelity.
ABC News will air much more of its interview with Marc Anthony on a special edition of Nightline Thursday at 11:35pm ET.
While this is Anthony’s first interview about the split, in August, Lopez spoke to Vanity Fair. In her interview, the Jenny From The Block singer said despite her marriage ending, she still believes in love.
“It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive — determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new
challenges. I feel strong.”
Lopez also spoke about her feelings toward Anthony, saying she “will always respect Marc as a singer and performer … He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”
As gossipwelove has previously reported, on July 15, Anthony and Lopez announced they were divorcing after seven years of marriage.
In a joint statement at that time they said: “We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”
The couple married in 2004 in their Beverly Hills home. They have two children — 3-year-old twins, Max andEmme.
