Superstar Jennifer Lopez has one major regret in life - that she caused second husband CRIS JUDD so much hurt.

The JENNY FROM THE BLOCK singer enjoyed a whirlwind romance with dancer Judd soon after her tumultuous relationship with rapper SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS came to an end early in 2001.

The pair wed in September 2001, but the marriage lasted less than a year and Jen is now dating fellow Hollywood star Ben Affleck.

Speaking to American music magazine VIBE, J.Lo says of her marriage to Judd, "Coming out of a torrid relationship, I meet this sweet person who's so refreshing. But marriage is not just about love. I thought I had learned that in my first marriage...

"I loved Cris, still love him, he's one of the best people. This wasn't an easy thing to walk away from, but we didn't have what it takes to make a marriage work... Cris knows the last thing I ever wanted in this world was to hurt him.

"If I have one regret in life it would be that."

But the PLAY diva is finally happy now with DAREDEVIL actor Affleck - and her mother GUADALUPE loves her future son-in-law.

According to American tabloid PAGESIX.COM, Guadalupe says, "Ben is like Jennifer. Generous to a fault. I thank God every day that he brought Ben into her life. He's her angel and she is his angel."
