It was a family affair for Marc Anthony on Thursday who celebrated his son, Cristian, 22, as he graduated from college. 

Marc, 54, his ex-wife, Dayanara Torres, and their other son, Ryan, 19, reunited for the event and as they posed for photos the boys towered over their parents. 

Taking to Instagram, Marc posted a video - which can be viewed below - and some snapshots, delighting fans who rarely get to see his sons. In the caption, the dad of six wrote: "@cris_muniz_torres I love my kids to the moon and back and we get to celebrate you today."

One of the images showed him reaching up to pinch the cheeks of Cristian who grinned and took the moment in his stride. Fans rushed to comment and wrote: "The son on the left is identical to Marc," and, "lovely to see your sons," while others marveled at how grown-up they are. 

The singer is currently expecting his seventh child with his fourth wife Nadia Ferreira, 24. Despite this being Nadia's first pregnancy, Marc has children with three other women.

He shares two kids with his ex-girlfriend, Debbie Rosado, two with Dayanara, and twins with Jennifer Lopez, 53. Marc and Jennifer were married for ten years before calling it quits in 2011.

During their marriage, the couple welcomed twins Max and Emme, 15, in 2008, but just three years later they separated, although they didn't legally end their marriage until 2014.

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."

In 2002, the couple separated, only to get back together later that year and renew their vows. However, just one year after Ryan's birth, the couple divorced in 2004. 

Despite their split being the "hardest moment of my life", Dayanara 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.

Marc never married his ex-girlfriend, Debbie Rosado, but they share two children together, Ariana, 29 and Chase, 27.

He is now married to former Miss Universe contestant, Nadia. In January 2023, Marc and Nadia married in a lavish ceremony at the Pérez Art Museum Miami in front of guests including Victoria and David Beckham, who was the best man.
