The couple enjoyed a spot of celebratory fine dining in New York to mark the Dance Again singer's big day, which falls on July 24.
Smouldering Jennifer poured her famous curves into a pair of leather trousers for the outing – with a billowing white top and killer heels completing the look.
For his part, Casper looked dapper in his black suit, and somewhat smitten as he emerged hand-in-hand with the star from the restaurant.
Their outing comes as it was revealed Mariah Carey will replace Jennifer as a judge on the hit show
During a recent concert in the US, she told fans of her decision to leave, saying: "It was an amazing experience for me, and I'm going to miss it very, very much, but at the end of the day this is what I do. This is where I belong, right here with all of you."
