Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were seen together driving around Southampton, New York but according to his spokesperson, the recently separated couple got together for their children's sake.
Lopez, 42, and Anthony, 42, announced in July that they were breaking up, but they did not specify a reason for the split. The two married in June 2004 and their twin son and daughter, Max and Emme, were born in February 2008.
"The intention was to spend time with his kids Emme and Max, and they had a beautiful time. He's been with Max and Emme a few times now," Anthony's spokesperson told People magazine about the estranged couple's visit.
Lopez commented about the couple's marriage in an interview with Vanity Fair's September issue, which goes on sale nationwide Aug. 9.
"To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself - if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me," she said.
Lopez has been married twice before but has no other children other than her and Anthony's twins. She and Ojani Noa were married between 1997 and 1998. Lopez wed actor and dance choreographer Cris Judd in 2001. They divorced in 2003.
Before Lopez, Anthony was married to actress Dayanara Torres between 2000 and 2004. They have two sons - Cristian, who was born in 2001, and Ryan, born in 2003. Anthony also has a daughter named Ariana, who was born in 1994, with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado.
"I believe we're still waiting for the official announcement, but I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of 'American Idol,' (are) back for the next season," Nigel Lythgoe told series host Ryan Seacrest during an interview that aired on his syndicated KIIS-FM radio show on Wednesday, August 10.
