On Wednesday, Anthony also posted a Facebook photo of him and De Lima kissing, with the caption: "Gracias!" More than 9,000 people "liked" the post.

Friends took to Twitter to congratulate the couple, who have kept their relationship quiet up until now.

The 43-year-old singer split from his wife of seven years, Jennifer Lopez. The couple announced in July that they were breaking up, but they did not specify a reason for the split. The two married in June 2004 and their twin son and daughter, Max and Emme, were born in February 2008.

Meanwhile, Lopez, 42, has also moved on with a younger man, 24-year-old backup dancer Casper Smart. Lopez and her new beau celebrated the Thanksgiving holidays together on the beach in Hawaii, with the singer's twins.

Before Lopez, Anthony was married to actress Dayanara Torres between 2000 and 2004. They have two sons - Cristian, who was born in 2001, and Ryan, born in 2003. Anthony also has a daughter named Ariana, who was born in 1994, with ex-girlfriend Debbie Rosado.

In August, Anthony got candid about his split with Jennifer Lopez during an interview with ABC's "Nightline" and said, "I'll always love Jennifer."

When asked about the split, Anthony says, "It is sad because you think about the impact of all those people who believed in you, you think about your family, you think about the possibilities."

Lopez has been married twice before but has no other children other than her and Anthony's twins. She and Ojani Noa were married between 1997 and 1998. Lopez wed actor and dance choreographer Cris Judd in 2001. They divorced in 2003.
