Who Is Marc Anthony's Fiancé, Nadia Ferreira?

Marc Anthony is heading down that aisle once again. The star is engaged to the stunning Nadia Ferreira, with the latter first confirming the super exciting news via her Instagram Stories on May 12. Ferreira shared a gorgeous photo of her engagement ring as Anthony (who's around 30 years older than his wife to be, by the way!) put his hand on top of hers, writing on top of the snap, "Engagement Partyyyyy" with a ring emoji. Cute!

As you may be aware though, this isn't exactly Anthony's first marriage rodeo. The Latin singer was most famously married to Jennifer Lopez for a decade between 2004 and 2014, and the two share two children together, twins Max and Emme. Of course, Lopez has also very much moved on from their romance too, first getting engaged to baseball legend Alex Rodriguez in 2019 and then having a ring slid on her finger by Ben Affleck after she rekindled her romance with her ex shortly after splitting with Rodriguez.

But Lopez isn't Anthony's only former wife. The singer was originally wed to Dayanara Torres from 2000 until 2003 and then tied the knot with Shannon De Lima in the wake of his romance with JLo, with those two staying married from 2014 until 2017. But enough about Anthony's famous exes, as what we really want to know is a whole lot more about his latest wife-to-be.

Nadia Ferreira is a pageant queen

Nadia Ferreira is clearly stunning, so it's probably no surprise to hear she's competed in a few pageants in her time. In fact, Ferreira represented Paraguay during the 2021 Miss Universe pageant, and landed herself the prestigious position of first runner-up after finishing just behind Harnaaz Sandhu. Before that, she was crowned Miss Teen Universe Paraguay 2015 and competed in Miss Teen Universe 2015. But it's not just in pageants where you might have seen this star before. She also has quite the impressive portfolio and has modelled for the likes of big-time fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, while she's signed for Elite models in Los Angeles and Miami.

But that's not all! She's also appeared in several TV advertisements, including popping up in a commercial for Samsung, while showing off her enviably glossy locks in an ad for Clear haircare. Proving she's far more than just a pretty face, Ferreira also has an impressive TV career, and actually appeared on the show "Parodiando Paraguay" in 2015. For those not familiar, the Paraguayan series features famous faces impersonating famous singers, with this star opting to take on Taylor Swift to perform her hit "Shake It Off." Ferreira also helmed ¡Hola! TV's coverage of the 2022 Oscars red carpet in March.

Nadia Ferreira likes to give back

Nadia Ferreira clearly has a good head on her shoulders and has been very vocal about her desire to save the planet and do her bit for the environment, as she's a member of the United Nations Development Programme. The star has spoken out about her involvement a few times on Instagram, including in May when she shared a few snaps of herself doing good alongside the caption, "What an honor to be an ambassador of the United Nations Development Program, to have the opportunity to reach more people to raise awareness." Ferreira also shared a video showing her efforts, which got some attention from her husband to be. "Congratulationssssssss so proud of you," Marc Anthony commented on the upload.

And it seems like her home is pretty proud of all of Ferrerira's hard work. In December 2021, she was named "Favorite Daughter of the City of Asunción" and vowed on Instagram to continue to fly the flag of her home country of Paraguay. "I am very grateful to the Mayor and the President of the Municipal Board for this great recognition and to each one of the people for so much love and support. My commitment to you does not end with the Miss Universe, nor with the year, but rather it is for life. To continue carrying the flag of Paraguay and Latin America at the top," she wrote in the caption. Beauty and brains? Marc Anthony is a lucky man!
