Relationships can be up and down in Tinseltown, but it’s always a shock when you hear about a celebrity divorce. We were so surprised when twin parents Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced they were splitting up. However Marc has insisted that he is still very good friends with his ex-wife and that the split will not affect their 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
“I’m always going to be Daddy. They are used to me travelling and Jennifer travelling and, you know, we speak all the time, and try to maintain that presence,” said Marc, reports Celebrity Baby Scoop.
“We’re going to be in each other’s lives for many, many, many years, and I’m glad that our friendship is that strong,” added Marc.
Another Hollywood couple apparently on the verge of divorce were Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, but over the weekend Jada squashed any speculation by talking about her appreciation for Will as a husband and a dad.
“Thank goodness they have a father and I don’t have to raise them alone,” said the mum of Jayden, 13, and Willow, 10, according to Celebrity Baby Scoop.
“Having been raised by a single mother I’m very clear on what the difficulties of being raised by a single mother are. It’s very hard when you don’t have a male component in the home to create balance and help in the decision making,” said Jada.
Fellow celebrity couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are also going strong, with the pair celebrating their five-year wedding anniversary later this year.
“It will be five years in November and our relationship is great,” said Katie, according to Showbiz Spy.
“My husband has made incredible movies that have impacted the world and therefore I’m a part of that now. I’m proud of it and it’s OK,” added Katie, mum to the world’s most stylish toddler, Suri.
