“Need to Know” all about the engagement ring Marc Anthony gave Nadia Ferreira?
The singer, 53, recently proposed to his girlfriend, 23, after just three months of dating, presenting her with a sparkler that looks surprisingly familiar.
The Paraguayan model showed off the bling on her Instagram Story Thursday, revealing that the couple were celebrating an “engagement party.” Anthony has yet to confirm the news.
“The gigantic diamond on Nadia’s ring is likely at least 10 carats, and I’d estimate the value to be an impressive half-million dollars,” Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro, tells Page Six Style.
The emerald-cut center stone is flanked by two tapered baguettes, just like the three-stone ring Anthony gave ex-wife Jennifer Lopez in 2004.
However, Anthony’s superstar second wife sported an 8.5-carat Harry Winston blue diamond, valued at about $4 million.

At the time, Anthony further cemented his bond with Lopez by getting her name tattooed on his wrist and her initials — JLA, for Jennifer Lynn Anthony (or perhaps Jennifer Lopez Anthony) — inked on his ring finger. He covered up both tats after announcing the couple’s separation in 2011.
This will be Anthony’s fourth marriage while Lopez, with whom he shares 14-year-old twins Max and Emme, is currently engaged to Ben Affleck and is also set to walk down the aisle for the fourth time; in addition to Anthony, she was previously married to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998.
She was previously engaged to Affleck in 2002 and Alex Rodriguez in 2019, but neither engagement ended in a wedding.

Anthony, meanwhile, was married to beauty queen Dayanara Torres from 2000 to 2004, Lopez from 2004 to 2014 and model Shannon De Lima from 2014 to 2017. He has four other children, sharing Ariana, 28, and Chase, 26, with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado as well as Cristian, 21, and Ryan, 18, with Torres.
