However, in the weeks since, a lot of attention has also gone to her past relationships, particularly one of her most impactful ones, that being with fellow musician Marc Anthony, the father of her twins, Max and Emme.

The two singers were married from 2004 to 2014, having dated briefly in the 1990s, immediately after her first break-up with Ben.

And while the two aren't together anymore, they maintain a strong bond as not only co-parents, but also collaborators.

During their marriage, the duo often released music together and appeared in videos for each other, starring also in the 2006 film El Cantante together.

Since then, the two have worked together on-and-off, with JLo talking about the relative ease with which they were able to partner up.

Marc and Jennifer were married from 2004 to 2014

Appearing on The View in 2017, she said: "Marc and I are good how we are right now. There's a reason we're not together, but we're great friends and we're parents together. 

"We're even working on a Spanish album together. That has been even better for us. 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."

Speaking on Live with Kelly and Ryan, she talked more about her dynamic with the Rain Over Me singer, saying: "We are like best friends. We are making an album now. 

"At first I was like, we're good with the kids, but if we start working together, are we going to start going at each other again? But it's been awesome. Honestly, I think it's even helped our relationship and it's made things even better."

Marc and Jennifer have worked behind-the-scenes on a few projects since, with the former even acting as a co-writer and co-producer for her 2017 song Amor, Amor, Amor.
