Marc Anthony is engaged to 23-year-old former Miss Universe contestant Nadia Ferreira, and the couple is in a celebratory mood!
Nadia Ferreira announced the surprise news on Instagram on Thursday, posting a close-up photo of her gorgeous diamond ring to her Story with the caption, “Engagement Partyyyyy!!! 💍,” tagging Anthony, 53, in the snap.
“The gigantic diamond on Nadia’s ring is likely at least 10 carats, and I’d estimate the value to be an impressive half-million dollars,” Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro, tells Page Six Style. The emerald-cut center stone is flanked by two tapered baguettes, just like the three-stone ring Anthony gave ex-wife Jennifer Lopez in 2004.
In the picture while Nadia sported the sparkler ring, Anthony’s left hand is seen on top – complete with a covered-up Jennifer Lopez tattoo on his ring finger, which he inked over more than a decade ago – over his new fiancée’s.
The 53-year-old singer and his fiancee celebrated their engagement at Sexy Fish Miami on Thursday. The pair arrived around 9:30 p.m. with a group of friends, and partied the night away until 1 a.m., when they were seen exiting the restaurant while smiling and holding hands.
The New York native and Ferreira first sparked romance speculation earlier this year after they were spotted walking together in Mexico City. In March, they made their relationship Instagram official. “May God multiply all that you wish us,” Anthony wrote in Spanish alongside a photo of the pair at the time.
Prior to his relationship with Ferreira, Anthony first wed former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres in 2000, with whom he shares sons Cristian, 21, and Ryan, 19. Anthony and Torres, 47, split in 2004, shortly before he moved on with Jennifer Lopez. Anthony and Lopez, 52, wed in July 2004 before welcoming their twins Max and Emme, now 14, in February 2008. After announcing their split in 2011, the divorce was finalized in 2014. The Marry Me star, who got engaged to Ben Affleck for a second time in April, continues to coparent with Anthony.
This will be Anthony’s fourth marriage while Lopez, with whom he shares 14-year-old twins Max and Emme, is currently engaged to Ben Affleck and is also set to walk down the aisle for the fourth time; in addition to Anthony, she was previously married to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998.
