NEW YORK — Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez is expecting a baby with new husband Grammy-winning salsa star Marc Anthony, The New York Post reported Tuesday.

Anthony, meanwhile, is refusing even to saw whether the couple got married at the weekend at Lopez's Hollywood home.

A guest at the marriage told a source quoted by the paper that the curvaceous film star, who broke off her highly publicized engagement with film star Ben Affleck just a few months ago, was expecting.

Another friend confirmed that Lopez has been informing friends of her pregnancy, the New York tabloid said.

The marriage has so far only been reported by the US celebrity media.

Anthony refused to confirm it when he made an appearance on NBC's Today Show on Tuesday to sing one of his new songs.

"I see where you're going with this, and I'm going to preface it with just saying – y'all know I don't talk about my personal life," Anthony said.

The newlyweds, who are longtime friends, have a lot in common.

Both are "Nuyoricans" born in modest circumstances in New York to parents from Puerto Rico. Both have worked in pop music (including a duet together) and film, and become multimillionaires.

Anthony, an old flame of Lopez, was granted a divorce in the Dominican Republic just last week from Puerto Rican former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. He has two children with Torres and another from an earlier relationship.

Lopez's marriage to backup dancer Cris Judd floundered just a few months after their September 2001 nuptials. Her first marriage, to Ojani Noa, ended in 1998.

In addition to her marriages, the Hollywood headliner is also veteran of at least a couple of high-profile relationships with powerful men in the entertainment industry.

J.Lo's 18-month-long on-again, off-again courtship with Affleck finally ended in January, after a cancelled September 2003 wedding and a movie together, Gigli, which proved to be a critical and commercial bomb.

She also had an earlier, longterm relationship with rap mogul, fashion designer and actor Sean "Puffy" Combs, who now goes by the moniker P.Diddy. – Sapa-AFP
