Jennifer Lopez recently said she wouldn’t introduce any new love interest to her children until the relationship got serious.
So judging by pictures that have surfaced this week, the singer and Casper Smart, who have been dating for a month, are anything but casual.
The 24-year-old dancer looked like one of the family as he played with Jennifer's three-year-old daughter Emme during a holiday to Hawaii.

After announcing her divorce from Marc Anthony, the singer told Glamour magazine that introducing a new partner to her twins "would be confusing for them and it would be unfair".
"As a mom, and having children, right now they're my first priority. And because of them, I wouldn't ever comment on anything until I'm in a serious relationship again."
The star also said she would try to keep any new romances private after learning from her past relationships.
"I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media - they want to rush everything," she explained.
Jennifer and her boyfriend were snapped during a family holiday to Kauai, Hawaii. They spent Thanksgiving with Jennifer's mother Guadalupe and her children.
The vacation came just days after the pair performed together at the American Music Awards in front of her ex Marc Anthony.
An eyewitness told Us Weekly: "Casper was great with the kids. Casper twirled Emme and Max around in the water. The twins played tag and chased Casper".
