So far during her sojourn in Miami she has been seen slipping into a variety of colourful poolside ensembles.

But Jennifer Lopez opted for basic black today as she splashed around her hotel pool with her four-year-old twins Max and Emme and boyfriend Casper Smart.

However, the 43-year-old singer was still ever the bathing beauty, showing off her sensational curves in the bikini, which featured an asymmetrical strap around the shoulder.

She shielded her eyes from the sun with a
pair of retro-inspired gold rimmed sunglasses and accessorised with big
gold hoop earrings and a gold Hermes cuff.

Earlier, she had arrived at the pool wearing a retro-inspired kaftan and black wedges with zig-zag detailing on the heel.

The singer also joined her boyfriend Casper Smart for a dip, and the pair seemed to enjoy some alone time as they waded in the water together.

It seems things may be heating up for the couple, who began dating after Jennifer's split from Marc Anthony.

In a recent interview, the Dance
Again hitmaker admitted she's looking forward to perhaps one day having
children again, and is longing to have a big family.

She told The Sun: 'I haven’t closed shop in that department.

'I don’t know, we have to see — we only have so many years that you can do that.'

She added: 'I am a lover. I mean, at
my core I feel like that’s such a big part of my personality — and a
part of why I do what I do — because I have so much to say on that
subject.

'It was all kind of very synergistic, it worked really well together.

'But [film] is something that I really loved, it's how I kind of started in this business, and it doesn't leave you. I am an actress, I need to do that, too.'
