...and the award for Best Ex-Husband goes to Marc Anthony!

The Latin crooner recently dished on his relationship with ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, and her new beau, Casper SmartUS reports

On an episode of The Wendy Williams Show, he revealed he's chummy with them both. “I like them young, too!” he joked about his ex-wife’s relationship with 26-year-old Smart. Lopez, 44, has been dating Smart for two years. 

“It’s great. As a matter of fact, we were texting back and forth two days ago,” he said of the former backup dancer. “We’re actually really, really good friends. From the very beginning.”

Anthony, 45, maintains that what’s most important to him is having a great relationship with Lopez -- as his friend and the mother of his two children, 5-year-old twins Max and Emme. 

“When you love someone and you care for someone...Jennifer and I -- I don’t say it lightly -- we’re great friends. You know, anybody that means anything to her means something to me,” he explained. “That’s keeping it simple. Casper’s a great guy. He’s been great to my children. I have nothing but respect for him, absolutely nothing but respect.”

And as for Marc Anthony’s love life? Well, the boricua is newly single, after breaking things off with Chloe Green, but he told Williams he’s not giving up on love anytime soon. 

When asked if he wants to get married a third time, the singer answered with a resounding “yes.”

“Yeah, I do, I do [want to get married],” he said. “I believe in relationships. I believe that God has blessed me in so many ways. Materials things to but so far. Success goes but so far. But, when your house is empty and you don’t have someone to invest in, if you don’t have a witness, it’s almost worthless.”
