Congratulations are in order for Marc and his wife, Nadia Ferreira, as they welcomed their first child together on June 18, 2023 (ironically, it was also Father's Day). The couple tied the knot in late January 2023, and less than a month later, the pair took to Instagram to reveal Nadia’s pregnancy with a preview of her baby bump.

In the caption, she described their unborn baby as the “best Valentine’s Day gift ever!”

Marc Anthony has six kids from his previous relationships.

Marc started dating a Puerto Rican-American police officer named Debbie Rosado in 1993. They welcomed their first and only daughter, Ariana Anthony (aka Arianna Muñiz), in 1994. They also adopted a son, Chase.

The couple's relationship fell apart in the mid-1990s. Marc went on to date Dayanara Torres, an actor, model, and singer who was crowned Miss Universe in 1993. They got married on May 9, 2000, in Las Vegas. They welcomed their first son, Cristian Marcus, on Feb. 5, 2001.

Cristian was named after Mexican pop icon Cristian Castro, likely out of respect for the tradition initiated by Marc's parents, who named him after the Mexican singer Marco Antonio Muñiz.

Marc and Dayanara announced their split in July 2002, but they got back together a few months later. Their vow renewal ceremony was held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Dec. 7, 2002. They welcomed a son, Ryan Adrian, on Aug. 16, 2003.

Marc and Dayanara broke up again in the fall of 2003, and this time, the decision was final. Dayanara filed for divorce in January 2004. The divorce was reportedly finalized on June 1, 2004.

Marc married Jennifer Lopez on June 5, 2004, at her home in Beverly Hills, Calif. They welcomed twins, Emme Maribel and Maximilian David, on Feb. 22, 2008.

One of the best-known power couples, Marc and J.Lo embarked on numerous collaborations throughout their relationship. They released songs like "Por Arriesgarnos" and "Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta," a cover of Pimpinela's hit song. Meanwhile, J.Lo also invited Ariana, Marc's oldest child, to appear in the video of "Get Right," per MTV.

By April 2012, Marc and J.Lo had decided to part ways, and in June 2014, their divorce was finalized.
