Marc Anthony has been married thrice before

For those of you who don’t have a clue about Marc, he is an American singer and a famous salsa artist as well. Throughout his life, he has dated many women and has even been married a few.

To date, Marc has been married a total of three times. He was first romantically linked to Puerto-Rican actress Dayanara Torres and he ended up getting hitched to her. Soon afterward, he moved on in his life and got married to Love of my Life singer Jennifer Lopez.

After parting ways with Jennifer, Anthony went on to marry Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima. They say the third time’s the charm but that wasn’t the case in Marc’s life. He and Shannon decided to part ways after a few years together.

Marc tied the knot with Puerto-Rican actress Dayanara in 2000

Anthony got married to the former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres in the year 2000. The couple said their vows on May 9, 2000, in a Las Vegas ceremony. The pair shares two children, both sons.

Marc and Torres welcomed their first child in the world, a baby boy on February 5, 2001. They named their first baby Cristian Marcus Muñiz. Anthony took the inspiration for the name of his and Dayanara’s son from a Mexican singer. Their son was named after the Mexican singer Cristian Castro.

The couple’s second son Ryan Adrian Muñiz joined them earthside on August 16, 2003. Like the married life of any ordinary couple, the marriage of this star couple also went through its fair share of ups and downs and it couldn’t last long. The couple went their separate ways in early 2002.

Then a twist in their fairytale romance came and after a while, they ended up reuniting and they renewed their vows in a formal ceremony on December 7, 2002, at San Juan’s Cathedral in Puerto Rico. Their rocky marriage came to an end in October of 2003. Dayanara filed for divorce from Marc in January of 2004.

To process everything and heal post her divorce, Dayanara swapped her engagement ring with a diamond-encrusted Cartier watch. Later on, she went on to write a book called Married to Me: How Committing to Myself Led to Triumph After Divorce.

The couple purchased a stake in the Miami Dolphins in the year 2009. They joined the list of renowned personalities in buying small stakes in the club, including Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Venus and Serena Williams, and Fergie. Around the same time, they bought two houses in Brookville, New York.

In her book True Love which was published in 2014, Lopez talked about the moment when she knew that Marc wasn’t the one for her. She stated that she remembered the exact moment when she realized that her marriage with Marc was ending. It was a moment during a photoshoot.

The On the Floor singer said, “Sitting there while they put on my makeup, I felt like my heart was pounding and I couldn’t breathe. Anxiety consumed me. I don’t think I can continue with Marc any longer.”

Here’s everything about Marc’s third wife Shannon De Lima

The couple walked down the aisle on November 11, 2014, in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The marriage of Anthony and model Shannon De Lima was a short-lived one. It barely lasted two years.

Marc and Lima went their separate ways in November of 2016 and just the next month they announced that they plan to get divorced. Anthony and Shannon’s divorce got finalized on February 13, 2017.

At the time, they issued a joint statement that read, “After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two-year marriage. We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter.”

What is the current relationship status of Marc Anthony?

As of February 2022, Marc has been dating Miss Universe Paraguay Nadia Ferreira. The couple recently got engaged during a party at Sexy Fish restaurant in Miami.

Nadia took to her Instagram Story on Thursday to share a snap of her stunning diamond ring. We must say Marc has done a pretty good job with the ring. The emerald-cut center stone is flanked by two tapered baguettes and it is perfect.

Anthony and Ferreira sparked dating rumors when they were spotted out and about in public together in Mexico earlier this year. They made their romance Instagram official with a selfie taken on a plane.

Marc wrote, “Que Dios les multiplique todo lo que ustedes nos desean” in the caption, when translated into English it means, “May God multiply all that you wish us.”

Before being linked to Nadia, Marc was rumored to be dating Madu Nicola, with whom he shared a kiss on the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards red carpet.

We send our hearty congrats to Marc and Nadia as they are set to embark on a new chapter of their lives. Sending them lots of love and light. Don’t forget to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
