- Marc Anthony has been married four times, most recently to Nadia Ferreira, whom he married in Jan. 2023.
- Marc has six children with three of his former partners.
- He shares two children with Jennifer Lopez, who he was married to from 2004 until their 2012 separation.
Mark Anthonyreal name Marco Muniz, 54, is an award-winning singer-songwriter known for hit songs like “Vivir Mi Vida” and “Flor Pálida.” While he is a recipient of three Grammys and six Latin Grammys, among other accolades, to his children, the artist is simply dad. He is a father to six children, whom he shares with previous partners: twins Emma and Maxboth 14, with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez; sons Christian21, and Ryan19, with ex-wife Dayanara Torres; and daughter Ariana28, and son Chase26, with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado.
On Jan. 28, Marc actually tied the knot for a fourth time, marrying Nadia Ferreira in Miami. While the guest list for Marc and Nadia’s wedding was not confirmed, it was revealed that Emme did not attend the nuptials, as she was photographed out with her mom, J.Lo, and stepdad, Ben Affleck, in Los Angeles on the 28th. It’s unclear whether or not Max attended.
Marc has been open in the past about his distant relationship with his children. “The one regret would be what I chose to do took so much of my time,” he said on CBS This Morning in 2016. “What I would have done to be a stay-at-home dad and, you know, witnessed every second of everything. I would have loved that. It didn’t work out that way.
He also admitted that he’d always “wonder” whether or not his career was worth time away from the kids. “It’s the one thing that just tugs at me going…that’s the biggest sacrifice,” he shared. Learn more about Marc’s six children below.
Emma, born Emme Maribel Muñiz, is one of the two children that Marc shares with ex-wife J.Lo. The two were previously married between 2004 and 2014. Born on February 22, 2008 in Long Island, New York, Emme is perhaps one of the singer’s most well-known children, having made several red carpet appearances alongside her famous parents.
Don’t be surprised if the teenager follows in her parents’ footsteps as singers: Emme famously took the stage during her mom’s 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira in February 2020 and participated in a mashup of “Let’s Get Loud” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” alongside other young singers. No one was more proud than dad Marc, who shared a photo of his daughter on stage Instagram and wrote, “Emme Daddy is so proud of you. You are my ❤ and I am forever yours.”
In June 2022, Jennifer performed in Los Angeles and once again invited Emme up onstage. She introduced the teenager to the audience using ‘they/them’ pronouns. This was the first time anyone in the family had publicly acknowledged Emme’s gender identity. Jennifer has primary custody of both Max and Emme.
Max, born Maximilian David Muñiz, is Marc’s second child with ex-wife J.Lo and twin of Emme. Similarly born on February 22, 2008 in Long Island, New York, Max is relatively more low key than his sister, but he has made several public appearances with his famous parents in the past, including his father’s Valentine’s Day show in New York in 2009. He also showed up on the set of American Idol when his mom served as a judge in 2011.
Despite his young age, Max is already an activist in the making. While on the cover of the February 2021 issue of Elle, J. Lo revealed that her son emboldened her to use her platform for social change amid the Black Lives Matter movement. “He wanted me to make sure I realized that I had power and that I should use it,” J.Lo said. “I thought that was very insightful. It was one of those parenting moments when you’re like, ‘Oh, maybe I’m raising a conscientious, kind, loving kid here.’”
Marc shares daughter Ariana, his firstborn, with former girlfriend Debbie Rosado, a police officer from Puerto Rico. The two previously dated in the 1990s.
Not too much is known about Ariana, but she does follow in her father’s footsteps with a career in the arts. Ariana is an actress, and according to her IMDb pageshe has starred in the TV series South Beach, a drama that follows two best friends who leave their lives in Brooklyn, New York behind and move to South Beach, Miami. Marc’s oldest child leads a fairly private life, so not too much else is known about her.
Cristian, born Cristian Marcus Muñiz, is one of two sons that Marc shares with ex-wife Dayanara Torres, a singer, actress, and winner of the 1993 Miss Universe beauty pageant. The two were previously married between 2000 and 2004.
Born on February 5, 2001, Cristian studies art and design in New York, according to Hello! Judging from his Instagram, Cristian is an excellent artist. He has created digital renderings of Marvel characters, including Dr. Strange and Carnage from Venom. He’s always a big fan of Disney+ series The Mandalorian and its breakout character Baby Yoda, having shared a series of images that feature the little guy.
Ryan, born Ryan Adrian Muñiz, is Marc’s second child with Dayanara. Born on August 16, 2003, Ryan is relatively more low key than his brother. It’s unclear if he’s on social media, but his proud mom has often shared photos and videos of him on her Instagram page.
In one particular birthday Instagram post, Dayanara shared a clip of Ryan’s many talents, including playing the drums and guitar, singing (like his famous father), and enjoying a bunch of sports, like soccer, football, baseball, snowboarding, and motorbiking. The kid has practically done it all. The proud mom called her son talented in her hashtags, and that much is apparent.
Marc shares son Chase, born Alex “Chase” Muniz, with former girlfriend Debbie. Born on June 5, 1995, Chase was adopted by Marc and Debbie, according to Hello! Unlike many of his well-known siblings, Chase lives a low key life, meaning there isn’t much known about him publicly.
He appears to have a bond with his step-siblings, though. While Chase does not appear to be on social media, his former stepmom J. Lo once shared a rare snapshot of him with his father and five other siblings on Instagram, although the photo has since been deleted. The sweet photo came after the passing of Marc’s mother Guillermina Quiñones in 2017. The singer wrote that her ex-husband was “surrounded by love” amid the sad loss.
