Wedding alert! Did you hear 46-year-old singer Marc Anthony is engaged to his 20-year-junior girlfriend Shannon de Lima? And that they are getting hitched this month?!
According to Us Weekly, Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband popped the question back in March – just a month after his split from Topshop heiress Chloe Green – and the pair are said to be planning on marrying in the Dominican Republic later this month.
If you need a quick update, Marc and Shannon originally began dating two years ago but a year later they called it quits, during that time, the Vivir Mi Vida crooner dated Topshop owner Sir Philip Green’s 23-year-old daughter Chloe, a month after his split from Green, he apparently asked Shannon to marry him!
Born in Venezuela, she jumped at stardom at age 25 and at the hand of Marc Antony in 2012, before her big profile relationship with the singer she was a finalist on the contest “Sambil Model Miss Earth Venezuela” in 2005. Some reports claimed that she was declared Miss Venezuela, but that was never the case. During a Latin American radio show, the popular model confessed that she has no interest in running for Miss Universe.
She started out her career on advertising and while on her teens began appearing on runway shows. She has appeared on several magazine covers in Venezuela, either on lingerie or swimsuits.
26-year-old Shannon is already a hot mama, and we mean that in a serious way! She is the mom of an adorbale and gorgeous looking 7-year-old boy! Her son’s name is Daniel. She gave birth to him in her early 20’s on 29 October 2007; while she was in a relationship with ex-boyfriend, Venezuelan actor Manuel Sosa.
The Venezuelan beauty was studying communications before her modeling career took off. She later switched her major to interior design after giving birth to her son. And now a days it also seems like she is trying out acting, wouldn’t you if you were dating Marc? Probably appearing on his music videos is helping a lot.
She is currently taking acting classes in Miami, she splits her time between Miami and L.A.
Shannon also spends her time writing on her blog, shadelima.com where she gives beauty tips and shares her favorite beauty products with fans.
Shannon who speaks both Spanish and English, also reveals she’s working on getting her own swimsuit line out in the market. Her hobbies include playing tennis which she say she loves, yoga and can you guess? dancing! perhaps salsa?
Congrats to the couple!
