Three years (and two relationships) since Jennifer Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony split, the couple finally finalized their divorce on Monday, June 16, TMZ reports

Anthony, 45, initially filed for divorce from the “First Love” singer, 44, in April 2012 after they separated in July 2011. The couple has remained friends since, co-parenting their 6-year-old twins Emme and Max

Lopez quickly moved on in the romance department with backup dancer Casper Smart, but split from him after two-and-a-half years of dating earlier this month. Anthony dated British Topshop heiress Chloe Green for a year before parting ways in February 2014.

According to TMZ, the “Jenny From the Block” singer gets primary custody of the twins, who will spend seven days a month with Anthony. When the kids are with their father, the nannies must be present.

The former couple also agreed to use their “best efforts” to keep their twins out of the spotlight and away from photographers. Neither ex has to pay or will receive spousal or child support. This is good news for Anthony, who was recently ordered to pay ex-wife Dayanara Torres $26,800 per month in child support for his two sons, Christian and Ryan.

Since her split from Smart, Lopez stayed more omnipresent than ever thanks to a highly-publicized performance at the World Cup opener in Brazil and the heavily-promoted release of her eighth studio album A.K.A.
