Los Angeles: Singer Jennifer Lopez isn`t worried about the 18-year age gap with her beau Casper Smart.

"He`s adorable. But you already see that. He really is (sweet). He`s a good egg. I don`t want to talk about it too much. It`s my private thing," Lopez told Vogue magazine.

Lopez, 42 has been dating Smart, 24, after her split from musician husband Marc Anthony, reports usmagazine.com.

Asked about the 18-year age difference, Lopez said: "I don`t feel older, and I don`t feel like I look it, either, so I am just acting the same way I have always acted."
