Lopez was a judge on “American Idol” last season, but has not yet announced if she will return to the show. In addition to her musical career, she has starred in films including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” and “The Back-up Plan.”
In April, People put her on its cover declaring her the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.”
The marriage was the third for Lopez, 41, and the second for Anthony, 42. He was previously wed to 1993 Miss Universe winner Dayanara Torres. She was married to dancer Cris Judd and before that, to waiter Ojani Noa. Each of their previous three marriages lasted just a year.
