Jennifer Lopez has had three husbands: Ojani Noa, Chris Judd, and Marc Anthony, in that order. The singer, dancer, actress and former “American Idol” judge announced her separation from Anthony on July 15, 2011. J.Lo and Anthony’s split came after seven years of marriage, and the couple has two children together. In late 2011, news surfaced that Lopez, 42, had begun dating Casper Smart, a backup dancer 18 years her junior. By the summer of 2012, engagement rumors were rampant, and many are convinced that Smart will soon become the fourth member of the Jennifer Lopez Husbands club—an illustrious organization that men around the world would sell their souls to join.

Lopez married her first husband, Cuban-born Ojani Noa, in on Feb. 22, 1997. The marriage only lasted until January 1998, when the pair divorced. On Sept. 29, 2001, following an eventful period that saw her release her first two albums—On the 6 (1999) and J.Lo (2001)—and whether a public romance with hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, Lopez married Chris Judd. She’d met the former backup dancer on the set of her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” video, and despite a romantic honeymoon in Italy, the marriage had fizzled by June 2002, when she announced their divorce. Soon after, she went public with her relationship with actor Ben Affleck, and by the end of the year, they were engaged. Unfortunately, Bennifer, as the couple was tagged, never made it down the aisle, and they broke up before Affleck could become hubby no. 3.

That honor went to Latin singer Marc Anthony, whom she’d dueted with on her first album. Lopez was spotted dating Anthony months after the split with Ben, and on June 5, 2004, the two were secretly married at her mansion in Beverly Hills. On Feb. 22, 2008, Lopez gave birth to twins—son Maximilian and daughter Emme—and the following month, she shared photos of the adorable tots in People magazine. What followed was a slow period in her career: Her longtime record label, Sony, dropped her, and her 2010 movie “The Back-Up Plan” tanked at the box office. But 2011 proved a momentous year for “Jenny from the Block,” as she’s known. In addition to becoming an “American Idol” judge, she released the album Love? which featured the hit singles “On the Floor.” She also sang on Pitbull’s smash “Give Me Everything,” and in December 2011, Accuracast, a company that analyzed Google searches going back to 2004, named J.Lo the “world’s greatest musical comeback act.” If Casper Smart does put a ring on it and become husband no. 4, the 25-year-old will be hitching his wagon to something good.
