Did you hear the happy news? Another famous singer is tying the knot! According to Us Weekly, Marc Anthony is marrying Shannon De Lima. An "insider" told the magazine that this lovely duo, who have been dating on and off since 2012, got engaged last March. And the news is just being "confirmed" now? I guess they really know how to keep a relationship on the down low. This "source" also revealed the couple are hoping to get married in mid-November in the Dominican Republic.
Other than that, details are scarce, but I'd like to help you out in that department. For example, just who is Shannon De Lima? Yes, we all know she's the beautiful woman on the arm of this award-winning singer, but, of course, there's more to her than that. After doing some digging, I learned just that. From being a loving mother to being a professional model to partaking in pageants to launching her own beauty website, De Lima is quite the ambitious woman. Thanks to me, now you don't have to do your own research on this somewhat mysterious lady. With that said, let's take a peek behind the curtain and learn even more about the gorgeous De Lima.
She's a Mother
De Lima is a proud mother to seven-year-old Daniel, who she shares with Venezuelan TV actor "Coco" Manuel Sosa. Now that she is marrying Anthony she'll also become a step-mother to his six-year-old twins, Max and Emme, from his previous marriage with Jennifer Lopez. Anthony also has four other kids: Ryan, Cristian, Ariana, and Chase from his other former relationships with Dayanara Torres and Debbie Rosado. Talk about a full house.
She's a Model
As you can tell from her photos posted on social media, De Lima is a professional Venezuelan model. From appearing on many magazine covers to starring on Don Francisco’s Sábado Gigante (a Spanish-language variety show), De Lima is well versed in the modeling world. Fun fact: according to Latina, before becoming a model, De Lima studied communications. After giving birth to her son, she switched over to interior design, and now she might be focusing on an acting career.
She Competes in Pageants
Before becoming a famous model, De Lima got her start in local beauty pageants. In 2005, she competed in the Sambil Model Venezuela competition, where she was declared first runner-up. It seems we won't see her in any big pageants, because, apparently, she has no interest in running for Miss Universe — for now, anyways.
She Gives Health & Beauty Tips
De Lima is all about offering tips on fashion, health, and beauty via her official website. However, the site is in Spanish, so if you speak the language, great! If not, you can easily translate it thanks to the amazing thing that we know and love as technology.
She's Head Over Heels in Love
I think this is a given, especially since she's engaged. If you want to make sure, be sure to browse her Instagram page, where she posts all kinds of romantic pictures with Anthony. From the two strolling on the beach to the duo kissing to the couple sharing laughs and smiles, it's hard to argue that they're not in love.
