Even though Dayanara Torres and Amaury Nolasco have decided to split up, they still plan on being friends, the former Miss Universe told

“He will always be a dear friend, I love him to death,” Torres, 33, said at an event in West Hollywood, the day after the break up. “I support him, he’s always supported me. Because we broke up, it doesn’t mean that somebody did anything bad to anybody. We just decided mutually that it didn’t work out, but we are friendly, and will always be,” Marc Anthony’s ex said of Nolasco, 37.

As for future relationships, Torres is going to take things slowly for the sake of her two children, 7-year-old Christian and 4-year-old Ryan, products of her relationship with Anthony. “I’ve got to be very careful. I can’t just introduce them to anybody and not know him. Only when I think the relationship is going somewhere and getting serious, it’s when I start introducing, which happened only once,” she explained.
