Newly wed J-Lo expecting baby

NEW YORK: Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez is expecting a baby with new husband Grammy-winning salsa star Marc Anthony. Anthony, meanwhile, is refusing even to admit whether the couple got married at the weekend at Lopez’s home. A guest at the marriage told a source quoted by the paper that the curvaceous film star, who broke off her highly publicised engagement with film star Ben Affleck just a few months ago, was expecting. Another friend confirmed that Lopez has been informing friends of her pregnancy, the New York tabloid said.

The marriage has so far only been reported by the US celebrity media. Anthony refused to confirm it. The newlyweds, who are long-time friends, have a lot in common. Both are ‘Nuyoricans’ born in modest circumstances in New York to parents from Puerto Rico. Both have worked in pop music (including a duet together) and film, and become multimillionaires. — AFP
