Meet Marc Anthony's New Girlfriend!

1. She is a pageant queen...

De Lima got her start in local beauty pageants and was first runner up at the 2005 Sambil Model Venezuela competition. Some reports claimed that she was declared Miss Venezuela, but that was never the case. During a Latin American radio show, the popular novia confessed that she has no interest in running for Miss Universe.

2. She is a mother…

The model has a 4-year-old son named, Daniel, from her previous relationship with actor Manual Sosa. Word has it that they were on bad terms before she gave birth and they continue to have a rocky relationship.

3. She is the same age as J.Lo’s boyfriend Casper Smart…

Coincidently, De Lima, 24, is the same age as Jennifer Lopez’s new rumored beau, Casper Smart. Anthony’s ex announced that she was dating the back-up dancer just weeks before De Lima and the salsero posted their pic on Twitter. Could that be another coincidence?

4. She was indecisive about her education…

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. Now she has decided to pursue a career as an actress. She is currently taking acting classes in Miami. Could a career in telenovelas be in her future?

5. She appeared on Sábado Gigante

De Lima strutted her stuff as a model on Don Francisco’s Sábado Gigante. During an interview, she mentioned that the Chilean host was very sweet. We bet he was!
