Marc Anthony is absent from Jennifer Lopez’s Father’s Day message. In her newsletter on Sunday, the “Let’s Get Loud” singer, 52, remained silent about her ex-husband, 53, while honouring her fiancé, Ben Affleck, and her father, David Lopez.
In the touching message, Jennifer Lopez referred to the Oscar winner, 49, as a “consistent, loving, selfless father.”
She added that Affleck, who has Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, also looks after Emme and Max, her 14-year-old twins, “without obligation.”
The “Halftime” star continued, “I have had a front row seat to watching how you father for over a year now. … You are affectionate and engaged in every moment they are with you and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
“Thank you for all you do for all of us,” she concluded. “We appreciate and love you beyond measure.”
After J.Lo share a similar sentiment via Instagram, multiple users commented, “What about Marc Anthony?”
Another asked, “No love for Marc? Ouch.”
Lopez also gushed over her “gentle” and “kind” 80-year-old father.
“Thank you for not making me feel weird or alienated, but seen and sympathized with and understood when the ‘fame game’ came to town,” the “Marry Me” star wrote. “You have shown me the most important thing in life any parent could show anyone: to be a good person. You did it by your own example.”
Jennifer did not mention Mac Anthony or include any photos of the Latin salsa artist in her newsletter.
Emme and Max were born nearly four years after the former couple married in June 2004. They divorced in June 2014 after separating in July 2011.
In 2017, J.Lo told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that she and her ex-husband were in a “great place” in their co-parenting relationship.
“We’re always gonna be great friends,” the “Maid in Manhattan” star told the talk show hosts. “I’m always gonna be there for him, he’s always gonna be there for me.”
Lopez was dating retired MLB player Alex Rodriguez at the time, but they split in early 2021 and she quickly moved on with Affleck.
The couple, who dated from 2002 to 2004, became engaged for the second time in April.
For his part, Anthony proposed to model Nadia Ferreira last month.
