If you thought that Casper Smart was Jennifer Lopez‘s hot, jacked 20-something dancer rebound following her split from Marc Anthony…well, okay, you’re probably right. But Casper isn’t just a hot, jacked 20-something rebound; he’s also so cute with JLo’s kids, we want to die. The couple was spotted hanging out by the pool at the SLS in Miami Beach yesterday with Jen’s twins. Between Casper’s abs and playing pool games with Emme and Max, we’re surprised Lopez didn’t drop to one knee and propose right then and there. Actually…we sort of want to propose to him now, too. Sure, we don’t have a ring and, yes, we’d just be talking to a computer screen, but explain to us how anyone can look at this adorableness and not squee out loud. We’re approaching Flipper-levels of squeeing over here.
Seeing as how she’s already busy touring with Enrique Iglesias, as well as working with Anthony on their singing competition show, we understand now why Jen would drop American Idol to fit more of this beauty in her life. Who knew a few photos would give us a completely new level of comprehension about JLo’s decision-making process?

If a famous guy bought his much-younger girlfriend a fancy piece of jewelry for her birthday, it would hardly be newsworthy. So, yes, we’re succumbing to a total double standard by writing about Jennifer Lopez’s gift to Casper Smart for his 25th birthday — or possibly a bonus for all his hard work in her “Dance Again” video — a Dodge Ram 1500. The two were spotted in the shiny white truck leaving Ceccone’s, a West Hollywood Italian restaurant, on Friday night. A source told E! News that it was in fact Casper’s bday present.
We looked it up, because we New Yorkers aren’t that up on the price of pickups usually, and the Ram 1500 goes for an average of $22,000-$45,000. From the E! video of the Ceccone’s encounter, they did not opt for any special paparazzi plowing features. And couldn’t one of those overeager photogs just hop in the truck bed? Anyway, after seeing “Dance Again,” we’re picturing all sorts of adorable/hot ways JLo presented this gift to her honey. (One word: blindfold.)

Here’s another peek at those sexy video scenes.
In Jennifer Lopez’s new video for “Dance Again,” she and real-life boyfriend Casper Smart take turns blindfolding each other with a sash that reads “Love Is Blind.” But yeah, we don’t really believe that is the case with these two, especially not after watching them dance together in the clip. We can’t take our eyes off of them and get really annoyed every time Pitbull invades the scene with his gross lyrics about opening our “treasure chest” with oils. Shower, please. JLo’s featured her bfs in videos before, of course, but this one just may be the hottest. Maybe it’s Casper’s dance moves, maybe it’s their pure chemistry. Maybe it’s all that glitter. Paparazzi, you can retire now; we have seen way more of these two together than your cameras will ever catch.
Here’s a little recap of our favorite scenes.

We love how hot Jennifer Lopez looks on the cover of the new Vogue Shape issue, but you know who probably loves it more? JLo herself. “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have,” the American Idol judge gushes about ex Marc Anthony. “He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!” Just in case Jenny forgot her own awesomeness for even a second, she also sports a massive diamond ring that spells out the words I Love Me. “That may sound conceited, but it’s not. If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anybody else,” Lopez exclaims. “And I think as women we really forget that.” We aren’t even going to pretend we don’t looooove that she wears that. Or that we would expect anything less of her.
We find it no surprise then that JLo attracts, in the words of her manager Benny Medina, “obsessive men,” ostensibly like current boyfriend Casper Smart. Why wouldn’t they be obsessed? Are they made of hunky stone? “The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone,” Medina sighs, “instead of having nearly obsessive guys pursue her. The ease with which that obsession becomes a relationship I think sometimes works against her ability to have a real meaningful relationship.” Gushes Lopez about Smart, “He’s adorable. But you already see that. He really is [sweet]. He’s a good egg.” Just wait until she gives you the diamond I Love JLo ring, Casper. That’s how you know you’re in!
