Marc Anthony: Singer, Actor, Miami Dolphins Owner

Apparently, Miami Dolphin’s owner Stephen Ross wasn’t kidding when he said he wanted his team’s ownership to mirror the diversity of South Florida. About a month ago Gloria and Emilio Estefan purchased a minority share of the NFL team. But the Estefan's didn't have much time to revel in the fact that they were the first Cuban-American owners of any NFL team. Marc Anthony quickly followed suit, also buying into partial ownership of the Miami franchise.

“I'm a huge sports fan,” says Anthony. “These opportunities don't come around too often.” The Grammy winning singer hasn’t disclosed the financial terms of the deal but jokingly said, “It would have probably been cheaper just to buy season tickets.” Anthony went on to say that it’s an honor to be a part-owner of an NFL team.

Both Ross and Anthony are excited about this new endeavor. “Marc's a pretty bright guy and he has a lot of interesting ideas,” Ross told People magazine. “We're trying to do something different and he was thinking outside the box.”

Now, Anthony just has to do is find a new house in Miami for the family. He and wife Jennifer Lopez have just begun house hunting. Fortunately for him, J.Lo has no problem relocating south. “Jennifer loves Miami,” Anthony says, “So she's really, really happy about this because we're going to be spending a lot of time down there.”
