Many other well-wishers wrote "Felicidades," meaning "Cheers" or "Congratulations" in English.
How The Expectant Couple Met
The beautiful couple first made their romance known to the public in March of 2022; however, Ferreira already hinted at a possible romantic connection with the star on a private jet in a post on Instagram, captioning it "Kicking off birthday week 🥳✨." However, the good-looking couple first met at a Maestro Cares Foundation event where they got introduced by a mutual friend.
There's A Wedding To Plan!
While the exact conversation and reason for the introduction aren't clear, the unmissable engagement diamond ring on Nadia's finger is. The young model posted on her Instagram story Marc's hand over her hand and the gorgeous ring, having the caption, "Engagement Partyyyyy!!! 💍"
Their Star-Studded Wedding A Month Ago
The cupid-struck couple had an amazing wedding in Miami at the Pèrez Art Museum on January 28th, which took place nine months after the announcement of their engagement. Their big day had an outstanding guest list, which included Salma Hayek, Victoria Beckham, Lin Manuel Miranda, and football star David Beckham, who was his best man.
How They Walked Down The Aisle
It was a heartwarming moment for many of the guests out there at the Pèrez Art Museum. Marc and the mother of the model, Mrs. Ludy Ferreira, seemed visibly happy and excited at the union as they walked to the altar to wait for the bride. The father of the groom, Don Felipe Muñiz, took the adorable bride by the arm — walking her down to her man.
All Tears For The Salsa Singer
Despite not being his first moment at the altar, Marc Anthony couldn't hide his expressions and emotions after seeing his captivating bride at the aisle. The music legend felt the aura of his perfect bride as she walked in her all white designer gown — moving him to tears.
Nadia Rocking High Fashion Designs Wedding Dresses
The admirable bride wore eye-catching fashion pieces for her big day. Nadia stunned her wedding guests with her two custom dresses from Galia Lahav, featuring floral embroidery with a sheer sweetheart corset bodice. In the young model's words, she stated, "I loved, loved, loved my dresses."
Marc Wasn't Going To Tune Down The Heat
Matching his bride's stunning look, the dazzling husband-to-be took the spotlight rocking a bespoke Dior Men suit — joining their union in style!
The Bridal Train and Groomsmen Step Out in Style
The bridesmaids and groomsmen weren't left out of the spotlight, as both groups styled striking shades of navy blue to the wedding — matching colors to complete the wedding.
Their Night Out At The Grammys
Showcasing their romantic relationship way before this massive wedding, the lovebirds were spotted on the Red Carpet walking side-by-side at the 2022 Latin Grammy Award on November 17. During the music star's award acceptance for the Best Salsa Album for Pa'lla Voy, his paramour could be seen cheering him on in the sweetest way. He too responded to the love by giving a shoutout on stage to Nadia.
The Father Of Six, Turning Seven
Despite the parents-to-be expecting their first child together, fatherhood is nothing new to Marc. The salsa singer shares two kids with American Actress and ex-wife Jennifer Lopez, two with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado, and two with ex-wife Dayanara Torres.
Another Tattoo Coming?
Famous for his tattoos, the singer has been known for keeping his kids out of the spotlight, but keep them close to his 'heart'. On his chest is the name of his son Cristian, one of which he shares Dayanara Torres. So, it would only be expected to predict the name of the new baby on him soon enough.
Marc Steps Into Marriage, Yet Again
Although this might be Nadia's first time walking down the aisle, Marc is no stranger to saying "I do." The award-winning singer has been married three times before to Dayanara Torres (2000 - 2003), Jennifer Lopez (2004 - 2014), and Shannon De Lima (2014 - 2016).
Friendship Or Rift Between Marc And Jennifer Lopez?
Ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and their twin children, Max and Emme, aged 14, were noticeably absent from the lavish wedding of Marc and Nadia. Although in March 2017, Lopez appeared on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, stating, "Marc and I are good how we are right now." She further added that "there's a reason we're not together, but we're great friends." Hopefully, there hasn't been a rift in the friendship.
Lopez Unhappiness About The New Couple
Unlike the excited new bride, Nadia, ex-wife Lopez was too happy about the couple's engagement when the news broke. The mother of two expressed concerns about the quick engagement news of her ex-husband and Paraguayan model just only after six months of dating.
JLo Supports The Union With A Condition Attached
Even though the American actress wasn't the most convinced about the union, she was after all, only trying to protect her shared children with Marc from any of his engagement razzle dazzle. Her condition to Marc was for him to ensure the proper care and attention for their children, Max and Emme. And if he checks the box in the area, she blesses his new union.
Fans Waiting on New Pictures From The Couple
Almost 24 hours after Marc and Nadia's post together, many fans look forward to the next post from either of the parents-to-be, especially if it is about Ferreira's baby bump. Safe to say, the lovebirds are still serenading over their coming baby.
