Starting a tradition? Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart sport smug smiles on yet another romantic post-American Idol date



They seem to be making quite a habit of their romantic post-American Idol dates.

On Thursday night, Jennifer Lopez and her beau Casper Smart whisked themselves out of the studio and straight into a fancy Italian restaurant in West Hollywood for a loved-up dinner for two.

The 44-year-old bombshell and her 27-year-old dancer boyfriend sported smug grins as they strolled out together, with the singer ditching her hot  thigh boots from earlier for youthful street wear.

Having spent the night showing off her impeccable pins in impossibly hot boots that reached so far up her thighs it was almost dangerous, a pair of hi-top sneakers were surely a welcome release for Jennifer.

As were her deliberately ragged and ripped baggy jeans, which she topped with a loose-fitting off-the-shoulder black T-shirt.

Interestingly, the shirt was scrawled with the text ‘I am a mother’, so in spite of her youthful appearance, she was clearly not entirely forgetful of her position as a 44-year-old mother-of-two.
