Thanksgiving at Jennifer Lopez’s house may not be as awkward as you’d think. Her ex-husband and the father of her twin children Max and Emme tells TV host Wendy Williams he and JLo’s main man, Casper Smart, are “really, really good friends.” Really.

The 45-year-old stopped by The Wendy Williams Show for the February 17 episode and dished about his ex’s two-year romance. Marc himself hasn’t been all that lucky in love of late; he and 21-year-old heiress Chloe Green split just a week before Valentine’s Day.

Despite the breakup, Marc seemed in a jovial mood as he talked with Wendy. “I like them young, too!” he said of the age difference between Jennifer and her beau Casper (she’s 44 to his 26). “I’m not one to judge,” Marc added.

In fact, Marc and Casper are such buds “we were texting back and forth two days ago.” It’s been chummy since “the very beginning,” he adds, saying that “when you love someone and you care for someone… Jennifer and I and I don’t say it lightly we’re great friends.”

For that reason, “anybody that means anything to her means something to me,” Marc says of his one-time wife of eight years. He particularly appreciates how great Casper’s been to his children.

“I have nothing but respect for him, absolutely nothing but respect,” he adds to a round of applause and one very audible “aww.” Really.
