The pair married her in 2004 and the 40-year-old singer has 17-month-old twins, Max and Emme, with Jennifer. The salsa star says he was convinced he would spend the rest of his life with the brunette the moment they met backstage at Broadway production in 1997.

“She came to see me backstage at a theatre. As soon as she walked through the door I don’t know what hit me. But I probably said the worst thing. I said, ‘You’re my wife and you don’t even know it,’ and she was like, ‘Excuse me? Well that’s intense.’ I had no idea where that came from. But she was very cute and now she gets it! She’s my girl,” Marc explains.

The couple briefly dated after their first meeting, but both went on to marry other people before they reunited. Marc and Jennifer attended Jennifer’s birthday party “An Evening for Lola” at the Club Edison in New York City over the weekend.
