The 43 year old Latin crooner got a very happy surprise when the crowd started singing “Happy Birthday” to him at his Friday night concert at the American Airlines Arena. He reportedly “fell to his knees, teary-eyed, in thanks” after the adoring gesture from his fans.
He was also presented a 3-tier black and white cake by his eldest daughter, Ariana, created by none other than Ace of Cake’s Geof Manthorne.
The song set included mostly Spanish songs, including “Hasta Que Te Conoci,” a supposed reference to his recent heartache over his failed marriage to JLo.
But things didn’t look so grim for the former couple this weekend. Jenniferpopped in on Anthony for a “very special birthday visit at his Miami home.” Could the couple really be reconciling, or are they just still really good friends?
Jennifer took a hiatus from filming her upcoming movie, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, to visit Marc Anthony on his birthday. That’s a good omen, I suppose. However, she was not seen at Anthony’s private party the night before at Club 50, in the Viceroy hotel, where Marc partied with 150 of his pals. When he blew out the candles to his custom cake and was asked when his wish was, he replied he “already had his wish.”
JLo and Marc Anthony still work really well together, despite their relationship woes. They have both also shared how they still have lots of love for each other and will always be in each other’s lives because of their children. The former couple also has an upcoming reality show in the works, so it’s no surprise they are still very involved despite their relationship status. It’s complicated, I guess.
