Marc Anthony and Casper Smart really are friends! Or, at least, they both say they are.

The two leading men of Jennifer Lopez’s life have been staging a full-on bromance recently. Last week, Marc, who was married to J.Lo from 2004 to 2012 and has two children with her, told TV host Wendy Williams’s he’s “really good friends” with his ex’s new man, Casper Smart.

Now Casper is backing up Marc’s story, telling reporters via People magazine that he and his girlfriend’s ex-husband are definitely pals.

"Yeah, we’re buddies!” the 26-year-old said February 20. And this isn’t a keep your friends close, enemies closer situation, either. Casper says he and Marc have two great reasons to treat each other well: six-year-old twins Max and Emme.

“Anything can be awkward if you let it be awkward, but if you don’t, if you rise above it immediately, then it’s not awkward,” Casper explained. “When there’s kids involved in anything you can’t let ego or pride or any of that get in the way, because kids are more important than anything.”

Um, yeah, we’re totally seeing why Jennifer has kept this guy around.

Do you believe it? Are Casper and Marc as close as they say, or sound too good to be true? Hit the comments!
