15 Latino Celebs Who Have Not Given Up On Love

When you’re surrounded by used tissues and well meaning friends stuffing your face with double chocolate chunk ice cream post-break-up, you probably want to swear off the opposite sex altogether. Never again will you let someone rip out your heart and smash it into a million pieces. It’s easy to proclaim, but after reflecting on the relationships of some of our favorite Latino stars we wouldn’t advise you to jump to any drastic conclusions. If these stars had given up after their failed attempts at love they would never have found current happiness with their significant other. Still not convinced? Put down that spoon for a moment and read for yourself!

Jennifer Lopez

She has had a bit of a rocky road when it comes to love, but sizzling celeb Jennifer Lopez never lets her heart get on the floor! Lopez had short term marriages with Cuban waiter Ojani Noa and former back-up dancer Cris Judd that ultimately ended in divorce, and who could forget the infamous Bennifer in the early 2000s? Her marriage to fellow Latino Marc Anthony after these relationships gave the couple two beautiful children before their divorce in 2012. After a tumultuous relationship history some would be jaded, but we’re happy to say Lopez still believes in love! This superstar has been dating the much younger Casper Smart for the past two years, and there’s no telling yet just where that might lead!

Alexa Vega

Spy Kids actress Alexa Vega married her first husband Sean Covel when she was practically a kid herself at the tender age of 22. Though their marriage was over by mid-2012, Vega didn’t hide away and mope. She got back in the saddle, and it paid off! This past August the Colombian beauty became engaged to fellow actor and singer Carlos Pena, Jr.

Antonio Banderas

Antonio Banderas found lasting love his second time around. The Evita, Desperado and The Mask of Zorro actor has been married to his second wife, actress Melanie Griffith, for 17 years. That’s a lifetime in Hollywood years! Together they have a lovely daughter named Stella. They also received an award for their dedication to philanthropy in 2002. I guess when you’re happy in your relationship you work to make others happy as well!

Christina Milian

After breaking up with a cheating Nick Cannon in 2005, singer Christina Milian started a relationship with musician The-Dream. Though their romance blossomed into marriage and daughter Violet, their relationship must not have been so dreamy after all. The couple’s divorce was finalized in 2011, but Milian wasn’t twiddling her thumbs and waiting around for her prince charming to come to her. The Cuban beauty began dating Jas Prince, and it was confirmed this past September that the two have been engaged for several months. Congrats to the happy couple!

Mariah Carey

Singer Mariah Carey appears to have it all with two gorgeous children and a picture perfect marriage to Nick Cannon, so it’s lucky for her that she never gave up on love. The star’s first marriage to big wig music mogul Tommy Mottola ended in divorce after which she really found herself in music before again finding herself in love. Carey married Cannon in 2008.

Eva Longoria

Even though she’s been married twice in the past, we love that this former Desperate Housewives star is still looking for Mr. Right! Eva Longoria was married to Tyler Christopher of General Hospital before her nuptials to point guard Tony Parker. The couple seemed happy, Longoria even took her husband’s name, but all was not well in paradise. It later came out that Parker was believed to have been cheating on our stunning Latina. Longoria has been involved in several relationships since the divorce, but none have stuck. God help the rest of us ladies with that beauty still on the market!

Marc Anthony

Much like his ex who appeared previously on this list, singer Marc Anthony hasn’t let something like a few failed marriages stop him from finding happiness. Anthony was first married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres in 2000. Their rocky relationship gave the couple two sons but ultimately ended in divorce. Anthony took up with long-time friend Jennifer Lopez and the two were married just one week after his divorce was finalized. Though he and Lopez remain friends, they ended their relationship in 2012. Anthony is currently linked to Topshop heiress Chloe Green. What do you think, could she be the one?

Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Jamie-Lynn Sigler seems to have finally found her home in baseball player Cutter Dykstra and their new baby Beau, and she can credit that to her dating perseverance! At the age of 22 the former The Sopranos star married her manager, A.J. DiScala. The two separated in 2005. Sigler was linked to big names like Jerry Ferrara and Mark Sanchez before her engagement to Dykstra in January of this year.

Sofia Vergara

Looking at her now it’s easier to see Sofia Vergara as a sexy bombshell rather than a love struck teenager, but at 18 years old that’s what she was. She married her childhood sweetheart at the age of 18, gave birth to their son at the age of 20 and was divorced by 21. The 41-year-old Modern Family actress certainly didn’t rush into anything, but her search for love didn’t end in her early 20s. Vergara and businessman Nick Loeb announced last year that they are now engaged!

Mario Lopez

In one month Mario Lopez will celebrate his one year wedding anniversary with Broadway dancer Courtney Mazza, but he had to endure a few failed relationships before he found the love of his life and mother of his two children. Lopez was first married to actress Ali Landry, but the union ended in an annulment after two weeks. Thankfully for Lopez the stars aligned a second time and he seems happier than ever!

Kiele Sanchez

Kiele Sanchez is another Latino who will celebrate one year of marriage come December! But, before the The Glade and Lost star walked down the aisle with actor Zach Gilford, she was married to another Zach, Zach Helm. We’re glad Sanchez found her happy ending. Happy almost-anniversary!

Eva LaRue

Third time was the charm for model and actress Eva LaRue! The All My Children and CSI: Miami actress was married to actors John O’Hurley and John Callahan before finding lasting love with Joe Cappuccio in 2010.

13. celeb love slide 13 rosie perez

Rosie Perez

Rosie Perez isn’t one to say no to love! The actress and dancer was married to filmmaker and playwright Seth Zvi Rosenfeld, but the union didn’t last. This past September Perez married artist Eric Hayes in Las Vegas after hinting that they might tie the knot if Floyd Mayweather Jr. won his fight. He won. Who knew a fight could lead to marriage?

Eddie Cibrian

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Eddie Cibrian was married to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville before walking down the aisle with country crooner LeAnn Rimes. Though the three have had some very public problems, Cibrian has yet to let that interrupt the happiness he and his current wife share.

Christina Aguilera

In 2005 songstress Christina Aguilera became engaged to and married marketing executive Jordan Bratman. The duo gave birth to son Max, but their wedded bliss didn’t last. The two split in 2010. Always one to pick herself up and dust herself off, Aguilera began hitting the dating pool once again, and she seems to have found someone worth swimming with. It’s possible that Aguilera found the love of her life in boyfriend Matthew Rutler, but we know little Max will always come first!
