Marc Anthony has a new Venezuelan girlfriend.

The singer - who split with Jennifer Lopez after seven years of marriage in July - is now in a relationship with model Shannon De Lima, and he took to his Facebook account to post a picture of the happy couple.

He captioned the image "Gracias", which is the Spanish word for "thank you" and also praised the brunette stunner on his twitter account.

Marc wrote a message on the social networking site in Spanish that translated to say: "To Shannon, my statue of liberty. Kisses baby!"

The 42-year-old star's adopted son Chase Muniz - from his relationship with Debbie Rosado - also praised the salsa singer on his twitter account.

He wrote: "To all my followers and everybody on twitter follow 2012 best couple and for many more years to come @MarcAnthony and @Shadelima !!!!!

"Life is beautiful nothing like being surrounded by the people you love @MarcAnthony @Shadelima !!!!!! #family (sic)"
