Marriage in J.Lo’s future

True, pop siren Jennifer Lopez has been playing cat-and-mouse games with the press on whether she’s a) engaged and/or already married and b) pregnant.

She has now hinted in an interview with London’s News of the World that she may be ready to tie the knot with boyfriend Cris Judd toward the end of the year.

“I feel I’ve found my soul mate in Cris,” she told the Sunday newspaper, but she would not confirm whether they are engaged.

Lopez‘s previous marriage, to Ojani Noa, lasted one year. She most recently dated rap mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs.

She also has vehemently denied the rumors that she is pregnant.

She told the New York Post last month that she is “definitely not pregnant,” but that she “does want children” and plans to start a family sometime next year, if and when she gets married.

“I’d never have a baby without being married–my parents would kill me,” she said.
