J-Lo gets a new block

'Jenny from the Block' has well and truly left the Bronx behind, having put an offer in on an $18 million pad in the exclusive Watermill area of the Hamptons, New York, where she has previously been spotted enjoying family holidays.

The 42-year-old singer and actress, who has recently split from husband of seven years Marc Anthony, is moving into the 14,000 square foot home with the couple's three-year-old twins, Emme and Max. And with its seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms we reckon it should just about be big enough for them and the inevitable staff.

Other A-list features in the grand home include breathtaking waterfront views, a pool, heated marble floors, numerous walk in wardrobes and seven grand fireplaces dotted throughout, including two in the property's two-acre garden.

And if J-Lo's accountant was getting worried about the stellar price tag, he can rest easy with the news that Lopez has just signed up for another stint as an American Idol judge, which will reportedly net her a cool $20 million.

Which means she'll also able to afford a yacht to moor on the property's private dock.
