Single Moms: Dayanara Torres


Children: Two sons, Cristian and Ryan.

Dayanara Torres has two sons from her former marriage to singer Marc Anthony. The couple always had a rocky relationship and they separated twice before Torres finally filed for divorce in January of 2004. Cristian Anthony Muñiz was born February 5, 2001 and Ryan Anthony Muñiz was born on August 16, 2003. After the split, Dayanara was inspired to write the self-help book Married To Me: How Committing To Myself Led to Triumph After Divorce when she failed to find any literature to help her through the painful period in her life. Of being a single mom, Torres said, “It’s difficult trying to balance it all, but I’m doing it.
