Jennifer Lopez is a woman of many, many talents: She can act, sing, dance, design…and, if a recent Instagram post from fiancé Alex Rodriguez is any indication, she is also an incredible co-parent.
J. Lo and A. Rod attended her son Max’s music recital a few days ago—but they weren’t alone. Max’s dad, Jennifer’s ex-husband Marc Anthony was also there.
The three adults who all love Max sat together in the audience, and Alex shared the sweetest video clip from the event. The video shows A. Rod sitting between the exes: Both Jennifer and Marc playfully lip-sync the words to “I Will Always Love You” as their son and his group perform the classic. Alex sits in between them laughing—because, by his own admission, he can’t quite keep up with the former couple on a musical level.
“Those who can, do,” Alex writes alongside the video. “Those who can’t, sit between two people that can and stay quiet! #imnotasinger.”

But J. Lo and Marc’s musical chops are definitely not the only impressive thing we’re seeing here. Co-parenting is nothing new, and this is certainly not the first set of celebrity parents to keep working together as parents even after a breakup. Still, this display is both heartwarming and seriously commendable. Marc’s willingness to welcome his ex-wife’s future husband into the fold, Jennifer’s ability to balance her co-parenting relationship along with her romantic relationship, Alex’s comfort level with his bride-to-be’s family—it’s all really wonderful to witness.
Soon after, Jennifer returned the favor by joining her future husband’s family to celebrate his daughter’s middle school graduation. Her kids were on hand as well to pose for a family photo.
Coming together for their children’s events is nothing new for this family. A year ago, Alex shared another Instagram shot of the group watching his daughters, Natasha and Ella, and Jennifer and Marc’s daughter, Emme, perform at a dance recital. He added the hashtag “#familia” to the photo.
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: Bravo to this beautiful blended family!
