Marc Anthony is once again a married man. Jennifer Lopez’s ex husband and the father of her two children, tied the knot with Shannon de Lima, Venezuelan model, in an intimate wedding ceremony in the circle of family and close friends on Tuesday at singer’s home in La Romana, in Dominican Republic.
American singer finalized his divorce with Jennifer Lopez earlier this year in June, after they broke-up in 2011, a few years ago. According to some sources, he proposed Venezuelan model when he first started to date her in March 2012, and it happened only one month after he ended a relationship withhis ex-girlfriend Chloe Green.
Back in February, when Marc Anthony spoke with Wendy Williams, he told to her that he dreams of finding a lasting relationship and that he will never give up. “I believe in relationships. God has blessed me in so many ways. Material things go, but so far. Success goes, but so far, but when your house is empty and you don’t have someone to invest in – if you don’t have a witness, it’s almost worthless.” – He stated.
Jennifer Lopez wasn’t Marc Anthony’s first wife. He was already married with Dayanara Torres for four years but their relationship ended in 2004, a decade ago. Former Miss Universe is a mother of two Marc’s children – Cristian (13) and Ryan (11). Also, 46-year-old singer has two adult children with his ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado – Ariana and Chase Muniz.
Shannon de Lima, his new wife, also has a son Daniel (4), from her previous relationship. Even though, Emme and Max, Marc’s twins, didn’t show up at the wedding ceremony, some Latin superstars like Tito El Bambino, Carlos Vives and Juan Luis Guerra were at the event. CEO of Sprint Corporation Marcelo Claude and Marc’s business partner Charles Koppelman were in attendance.
Last week the news of Marc Anthony’s engagement showed up in the media, and Jennifer Lopez wished her ex-husband well. “I’m happy for him.” – The “American Idol” judge said. When Shannon de Lima hooked-up with Marc Anthony she was 24 years old, and it is interesting to notice that Venezuelan model has the same number of ages as Jennifer Lopez’s ex-boyfriend Casper Smart.
De Lima started her career at Sambil model Venezuela competition in 2005 as a local beauty. Even though some reports wrote that she was declared Miss Venezuela, later the model confessed that she is not interested in running for Miss Universe.
