According to E! News, the 43-year-old star and her beau, Casper Smart, took the twins to a birthday lunch at Planet Dailies at the Grove in Los Angeles on Friday.

“It was a really cute family outing,” an eyewitness told the website. “J.Lo sat at the head of the table and Casper was by her side, and her mother was with them, too. They all ate pizza and fries and were laughing and giggling with the kids.”

“Casper was very hands on with the children and was entertaining them and helping Jennifer make their birthday lots of fun,” the source added. “Aside from the giggles they were very low-key and like a proper little family. It was very sweet to see.”

Max and Emme are Jennifer’s children with ex-husband Marc Anthony. The pair split in 2011 after seven years of marriage.
