Who are Marc Anthony's ex-wives?

Jennifer Lopez

Marc and Jennifer Lopez were married for seven years before calling it quits in 2011. Their divorce was finalized in 2014. JLo and Marc originally met at the Broadway musical The Capeman in 1998 and reportedly dated casually in the early 2000s. They reunited in 2004 and secretly tied the knot in June of that year.

During their marriage, the couple welcomed twins Max and Emme, now 15, in 2008, but just three years later they separated. There is no bad blood between the former spouses though, as Jennifer said on Live! With Kelly and Ryan in 2017: "Honestly, we're always gonna be great friends. I'm always gonna be there for him, he's always gonna be there for me."

Marc married Venezuelan actress and model Shannon De Lima in the Dominican Republic in 2014 after dating for two years. Sadly, just two years after they said 'I do' at the Casa de Campo resort, the couple announced their split in November 2016. They do not share any children together.

Dayanara Torres

Marc married Puerto Rican actress and Miss Universe 1993 winner, Dayanara Torres in Las Vegas in 2000. During their four-year marriage, they welcomed two sons, Cristian, 22, and Ryan, 19. In 2002, the couple separated, only to get back together later that year and renew their vows.

However, despite this attempt to salvage their relationship, the couple divorced in 2004. Although their divorce was the "hardest moment of my life" for Dayanara, she and Marc have a great relationship today. "My relationship with Marc is perfect. He is a great father to the kids. They adore him, and we get along very well," she previously said on Mira Quien Baila on Univision.

Debbie Rosado

Marc and Debbie Rosado were never married and only dated for a short time, reportedly meeting in 1993 before splitting in 1995. They share two children together, a daughter Ariana, 29, and a son Chase, 27, whom they adopted in 1995.
