Marc Anthony made it red carpet official with his new girfriend, 21-year-old Mariana Downing. The couple walked together to the Maestro Cares gala, an event held in New York City every year to raise funds for the Maestro Cares Foundation, led by Anthony and Henry Cardenas, which focuses on providing impoverished children in Latin America with a home and education.

Throughout the night, Marc, 48, looked happy as he held hends with his model girlfriend, who stunned in a floor-length white dress with metallic and gold embellishments and side cutouts.

The couple met in Miami last fall, right after Anthony's split from wife of two years Shannon de Lima, also a model. Since then, they've been seen at various events in Florida, as well at the singer's concerts, but never officially as a couple, until the Maestro Cares gala.

Page Six confirmed Anthony’s relationship in February after her divorce from de Lima was official.

Mariana is a model from the Wilhelmina agency based in Miami and she met Marc during a special dinner celebration. Sparks flew instantly. According to TMZ, sources confirmed the singer approached the model during that night and asked for her telephone number. Since then, they’ve been secretly rolling around.
