It is not known how long the couple have been dating

The singer shared his support for his former wife when he reacted to news she had ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez by reposting a heartbreaking photo Jennifer had shared on Instagram.

In the image, he was comforting their daughter Emme while Facetiming Jennifer and Marc had his arm around his inconsolable daughter.

Jennifer had captioned the post: "When they are sad but momma and daddy are there #Coconuts. I love you! So proud of you!"

Speaking of her close relationship with Marc, Jennifer previously told The View: "There's a reason we're not together, but we're great friends and we're parents together. We met working, and that’s where we’re really magical, when we're on stage together, and so we leave it there. That’s it."

The singer has since rekindled her romance with Ben Affleck, with the couple making their own red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month.
