Jennifer Lopez, 42, is talking about babies & Casper Smart, 25, is freaking out

God, there are like twenty-million contradictory Jennifer Lopez-Casper Smart stories in this week’s tabloids. I think it’s because What To Expect When You’re Expecting is coming out (today) and Jennifer has been talking about babies, naturally. So the tabloids have used Jennifer’s baby-talk to imply that BABIES are totally on her mind in her relationship with Casper Smart, to disastrous and widely varying results. First, the official version of “Where Casper and J.Lo’s relationship is right now” from People Mag:

When it comes to her boyfriend Casper Smart, Jennifer Lopez gets the royal treatment.

“He treats her like a queen,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “Casper centers everything on Jennifer.”

Dating six months, the fast-moving couple – Smart moved into the Hidden Hills, Calif., mansion that Lopez shares with her 4-year-old twins Max and Emme at the start of the year – haven’t let their 17-year age gap slow them down. (She’s 42; he’s 25.) Still, some friends wish that the wedding-loving superstar – who split from singer Marc Anthony last summer – would take things slowly for a change.

A Lopez family source says some members of her inner circle “worry that Casper will take advantage of her. She has fallen so hard.”

But the American Idol judge, who recently announced her plans for a summer tour that Smart will help choreograph, seems just fine with her reputation as a commitment-happy kind of woman. At a recent press conference for her upcoming film What to Expect When You’re Expecting, she laughingly summed up her view on love: “I’m a bit of a romantic, if you hadn’t noticed.”

In Touch Weekly’s sources have similar sentiments – the sources claim “Jennifer gives 110 percent when she’s this smitten. She’s letting Casper call all the shots and that’s starting to upset some of her friends.” Those friends? Her tour manager Fabian Herrera, who recently quit because “there was no way Fabian was taking orders from a kid. He thinks it‘s a bad move on J.Lo‘s part and doesn‘t want to be involved.” Casper has also convinced Jennifer to get rid of some of her longtime staff members at her CA mansion, but only after he insisted that all of the staff “call him Mr. Smart and demanded that Jennifer’s assistant Gilly get him drinks.” So Gilly is now working for Benny Medina, Jennifer’s manager. Oh, and Jennifer’s sister Lynda has concerns about Casper too, but Jennifer “told her to mind her own business.” The problem, as always, is that Jennifer seems to be “encouraging” Casper’s bad, entitled, bratty behavior. Ugh.

As for babies… well, The Enquirer giveth and The Enquirer taketh away. They claim Jennifer is hell-bent on having more babies and Casper is all, “I’m only 25, yo.” (Which is exactly what he sounds like.)

Jennifer Lopez is desperate to have more children before it’s too late, but her toyboy lover is telling pals: “I’m too young to have kids!” At nearly 43, J.Lo’s biological clock is ticking loudly. And the mom of two’s surprising confession about expanding her family during a recent interview caused shock waves in her relationship with 25-year-old Casper Smart.

“Casper’s got absolutely NO interest in becoming a father,” said an insider. “he freaked out when he read Jen’s comments, and it forced a very awkward conversation between them. He had to know if she was serious about it, because it’s certainly not part of his agenda for at least another 10 years. Casper told her he’s too young to be a dad and needs to focus on his career right now.”

Jennifer explained that her quotes were misconstrued – she told Casper that she only said that it would be a “blessing” to have more kids, said the insider.

“Clearly she is trying to ease her young lover into the idea of being a father,” continued the insider. “Casper tried to be gentle with her about the subject, but he made it clear that fatherhood isn’t even on his radar yet.” A source close to the situation says Jennifer was “secretly devastated” by Casper’s reaction.

“Jennifer knows she can’t wait another 10 years to have more kids. And besides, she’s got all the help in the world, so it’s not like kids would get in the way of Casper’s career.”

Now pals are wondering if this issue could signal the end of the couple’s romance. “She’s no spring chicken,” added a pal. She knows she hasn’t got much time left if she is going to have another baby.”

I don’t even know where Jennifer’s head is these days. Would she really try to have a baby with Casper? My gut says no. My gut says Jennifer isn’t all that interested in having any more babies, but she can’t say that while promoting a movie about the joys of pregnancies and motherhood. Of course… I could see her adopting, actually. So… that’s always a possibility. As for Casper – I can’t imagine that he would so anti-baby. Surely he knows that if he and Jennifer have a kid together he’s set for life, right? That’s the male golddigger’s dream too.

    He doesn’t need to worry. She’s not going to get pregnant again, it’s all talk. I’m sure she remembers all too well how she looked during her last pregnancy and she’s never going to let that happen again.

  2. Jayna says:

    He was in an interview talking about Jennifer’s show choreographywise. He does come off cuter when talking. He had a nice voice with a nice smile. I expected a Jersey Shore type guy and it wasn’t the case.

  3. brin says:

    I don’t think either of them have babies on their minds…yet.

  4. Azurea says:

    Well, if they did have one, considering the size of his ass and hers, it would be one big-ass baby!

  5. Marjalane says:

    Jennifer Lopez needs to wear a big sign on her chest that says:

    “Don’t trust my opinion on anything. I have terrible taste in men, music, and clothing.”

  6. Jayna says:

    Jennifer tried forever to get pregnant. She considered it a miracle when she did. She has said she was depressed afterwards and didn’t feel like herself for a year. She has made a huge comeback careerwise and she is a driven woman. If she only had one child, maybe. But she has her two and is in her forties. I don’t see her giving up her hot bod she worked so hard for. Twins and a busy career are enough for her.

    • another nina says:

      Yup, she had an IVF, so getting pregnant again won’t be an oooopss moment.

      • Iggles says:

        She has enough money to afford a gestational carrier if carrying the baby on her own is problematic. After having twins, she may be more favorable to go that route (like Nicole Kidman and others).

      • another nina says:

        Iggles – I actually refer to the male participation part. It means that he needs to donate fresh… eh… specimen at the time of every retrieval, i.e. being consciously present there. So, it’s not like just getting accidentally pregnant after crazy sex. He would have to be really
        onboard with this decision.
        Plus it’s a mundane case of old eggs. And I doubt she would choose donor egg path. So, gestational carrier is not a panacea…

  7. Reba says:

    She looks extremely young but she doesn’t look botoxed at all.

  8. PrettyTarheel says:

    So, I’m visiting my parents in TN, and against my will, they forced me to watch American Idol. He was on stage with her. What’s wrong with a DL boy toy? Why does she have to make him her bonafide?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      She’s a serial relationshipist. She can’t be on her own, alone, at all, EVER.

      There always has to be someone to hold her hand, her bags, her purse, her ego, whatever.

      • RHONYC says:

        yeah, i find that scary, someone who’s ‘always’ had a boyfriend & has never been alone.

        my kid is off to school next month & i told her to every now & again take in a foreign film, a coffee, an exhibit opening, a concert, even dine, a-l-o-n-e. learn to have fun, enjoy your own company & experience life solo sometimes. i learned this from the men & after a breakup right b4 summertime.

        i taught myself how get out there & live a fun life regardless of having a bf when i was her age & i’m a better woman for it. ;-)

  9. Maritza says:

    He would definitely be set for life is she has a baby with him. Now, would be the time to do it, she isn’t getting any younger. At least this KFed is earning his keep by doing her choreographies.

  10. Jessica says:

    Is her hair real or extensions??

  11. roxy750 says:

    I love this woman. She has it all and to top it off she’s beautiful. Her downfall–boyfriend after boyfriend..or husband after husband and she seems to sell herself — her sexuality when she doesn’t need to. But this woman has earned her badges–and she seems happy. I found it funny that last year this time she was on stage with Marc and this year it was Casper…she looked controlled with Marc, so now for me, she looks happy–so good for her.

  12. Lucy says:

    hmm….maybe she’s TRYING to run him off??

    Nah, I don’t think she’s that smart.

  13. Cleveland Girl says:

    I seriously could not care less about these two. Boring.

  14. Happymom says:

    I love the People magazine quotes about him treating her like a queen. Let’s see: she’s got the money, the celebrity, the power-he’s in his early 20s and a dancer-of course he’s worshiping her. Now. This whole thing-including how they’re spinning it for People-is a big eyeroll. She’ll marry him-because she always does. I would doubt they have any kids since she had a hard time getting pregnant before, and now she’s in her 40s. Then watch for it: divorced in 2 years.

  15. Iggles says:

    He had to know if she was serious about it, because it’s certainly not part of his agenda for at least another 10 years. Casper told her he’s too young to be a dad and needs to focus on his career right now.


    What career? Without J.Lo he’ll fall back into obscurity. Has anyone heard of Chris Judd lately? (JLo’s second husband — also a back up dancer and choreographer!)

    I don’t blame him for not wanting kids right now. These are the issues that arise when you pick up a date from the sandbox! JLo never looks before she leaps..

  16. jesstar says:

    I cant believe she is so singularly ambitious, driven & successful in her career, but so wrong when it comes to men. They are not all marriage material!
    Is this how it is with successfull people? They are entirely in control in one area of their life, but entirely not in another area?

  17. skuddles says:

    So basically Casper is her fan, her biggest fan, centers her in on everything, treats her like a queen, etc. I understand why she picked him – her ego requires a man who is essentially an adoring minion. But the baby thing… I don’t get the feeling she’s all the big on being a mommy now, why have more? That might be the turning point that makes little Casper run away and hide, and he may figure he’s got enough green and enough exposure now he can get by without her. In any case, can’t see it lasting – eventually all idols must fall of their pedestals and all adoring minions eventually grow up and seek their own minions.
