The two were all smiles as they showed off their budding romance on the carpet, gazing adoringly into each other's eyes. Marc was honored at the fundraiser for the organization that strives to improve the quality of life for Latin America’s most impoverished youth. The dad-of-five reportedly began dating Mariana earlier this year after announcing his divorce from his fourth wife Shannon De Lima last December.
Prior to Shannon, Marc was famously married to singer-actress Jennifer Lopez, whom he is currently working on a Spanish album with. The Shades of Blue star is currently dating former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez. Jennifer, who shares nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc, opened up about her failed marriage to the Latin crooner earlier this week admitting that she has no plans of rekindling her romance with her ex-husband. “I think we’re really good the way we are,” she said during an appearance on Live with Kelly.

“Honestly, we’re always gonna be great friends. I’m always gonna be there for him, he’s always gonna be there for me,” the mom-of-two continued. “We share something very special in the kids, and we know that. We’re there for them, and that’s the main thing.” Jennifer also noted, “We’re just in a really great place and it’s great and the kids get to spend time with the two of us more together and see us working together,” adding, “It’s just good for them. It’s good for us. It’s just good for the whole family.”
