Jennifer Lopez Defends Casper Smart as a "Good Egg"

by at . Comments

They've been spotted out in public, and they've exchanged loving Tweets, but Jennifer Lopez hasn't said much about her much younger boyfriend, Casper Smart. Until now.

In the April issue of Vogue, the American Idol judge glows over her back-up dancer of a man, telling the magazine:

"He's adorable. But you already see that. He really is [sweet]. He's a good egg. I don't want to talk about it too much. It's my private thing."

But what about that age difference of 18 years?

"I don't feel older, and I don't feel like I look it, either, so I am just acting the same way I have always acted," she says.

As for that public split from Marc Anthony? J. Lo adds that she's "proud" of how both sides have handled it and points to their children as the basis for their continued respect and friendship.

"We're still friends - and we're parents. But it's going to take time.. It's tough. But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we’re handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids."
