Singer Jennifer Lopez is contemplating a new family with her young lover.
J-Lo has four-year-old twins, Emmy and Max, with ex-hubby Marc Anthony, but the 43-year-old is considering having children with backing dancer Casper Smart, who is 18 years her junior.
The On The Floor hitmaker said that romance has been one of the key factors in her life.
She added: "I am a lover. I mean, at my core I feel like that's such a big part of my personality - and a part of why I do what I do - because I have so much to say on that subject. I feel like that's what my life is about."
Smart began dating the diva in November after he was booked for her shows last summer. He has previously worked with a troupe of dancing clowns, the paper reports.
Lopez has now made him her choreographer and he travels the world in her private jet.
His former clown-troupe mentor Thomas Johnson told the paper: "J-Lo is dating a clown. That's what she wants. They are in a big old circus - and her kids are happy because he is a clown. He is going to make it a brighter atmosphere in their house because he knows everything doesn't have to be so serious all the time. I think it's amazing. If they are both serious, it could be a win-win situation."
Lopez has been married three times and counts Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Ben Affleck as former lovers.
