Needless to say that Jennifer Lopez is currently infatuated with her boyfriend and soon-to-be husband Ben Affleck, so it should not come as a surprise that for Father's Day the Bronx native shared a heartfelt tribute to him dedicating sweet and loving words of appreciation.

Nevertheless, fans could not stop noticing that Jennifer Lopez might have had the best intentions by dedicating the day to Ben Affleck, however, her fans started slamming her for not giving a special mention to Marc Anthony, the father of her twins Max and Emme.

As far as it is known, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have an amicable relationship due to their co-parenting duties. However, it is a bit strange that she did not give him a shout-out like other yers. The most recent news about J.Lo and Marc being friends came months after breaking up with Alex Rodriguez since they shared a picture of a video call and later, were spotted together having dinner.

Shared on her social media platform to her more than 214 million fans and followers, Jennifer Lopez shared a brief video with pictures and clips of her and Ben Affleck together. “Happy Father’s Day to the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent, and selfless Daddy ever. #HappyFathersDay my love.” she wrote in her caption (funnily enough, no picture of her kids or his kids was added).

In the background, we can listen to “Dear Ben,” from her 2003 album "This Is Me … Then," but also her voice narrating what is happening in her life. “This is the best time of my life,” she said. “I love my career, but nothing is more fulfilling to me than being able to build a family with someone who I love deeply and who is just as dedicated to family and to each other as we can be. And I’m feeling incredibly blessed.”

"I love the idea of the future and what we can create. But I really just want to savor the moment and stay real present in it as much as I can," Lopez added.

Fans were not happy that Marc Anthony was snubbed from the celebration. “Jennifer Lopez made a whole video wishing Ben Affleck a Happy Father’s Day with images of him with herself and her own kids and I’m like, did Marc Anthony die?” said one fan while another added “When I played the video I expected to see Marc Anthony. Well, I guess not. .”

On her webpage, she continued the Father's Day tribute to Ben Affleck adding that her fiancé puts the kids above everything else. “Not just to your own kids but also without obligation to mine as well," she continued. "You show up and put them first always. You are affectionate and engaged in every moment they are with you and it's honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen." She concluded "Thank you for all you do for all of us. We appreciate and love you beyond measure."
