Marc Anthony definitely has a type: brunette women in their 20s!
The singer, 48, and his new girlfriend, 21-year-old Mariana Downing, made their red carpet debut on Tuesday, March 21, at the 2017 Maestro Cares Foundation’s Changing Lives and Building Dreams Gala in NYC.
The couple was first rumored to be dating in February just three months after the father-of-five, who used to be married to Jennifer Lopez, separated from 29-year-old wife Shannon de Lima. A source told Page Six at the time, “They’re pretty in love. They’re inseparable. They’re always together.”
The duo’s outing comes one day after J.Lo revealed that she’ll never remarry her ex, though they remain extremely close. “We’re like, best friends, you know? And, you know, at first I was like, ‘We’re good with the kids and everything, but if we start working together… is that gonna be like — are we gonna start going at each other again?’ And it’s been awesome. Honestly, I think it’s even helped our relationship,” she explained on LIVE with Kelly.
The 47-year-old, who shares nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc, added, “It’s made things even better. Yeah, we’re just in a really great place, and it’s great. And the kids, they get to spend time with the two of us more together and see us working together, and it’s just good for them. It’s good for us. It was just good for the whole family.”
“When it comes to love she marches to the beat of her own drum, and she can’t help being a hopeless romantic,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Friends are worried because she’s only just come out of the relationship with Drake and she’s jumped right back in.”
