Early Life and Education: Growing up in Venezuela

Shannon was brought up apparently an only child in her place of birth, by her yet unnamed father and mother whose professions are also a mystery. It can be said that virtually nothing is known about her interests during early childhood, as she has chosen to keep this sort of information out of the limelight. However, most people believed that she had a strong passion for acting and modeling growing up. As for her education, she is thought to have attended an unspecified local high school, from where she most likely matriculated in 2006. After that, she studied social communication at the University of Santa Maria for three years, but in 2009 transferred to interior design studies, though then moved to the US, and never finished her studies.

Career: Catwalks and cameras

One year before finishing high school, Shannon started her modeling career by participating in the Miss Earth Venezuela beauty pageant, in which she lost first place to Alexandra Braun and was pronounced runner-up. In 2006, she entered the Caracas Fashion Beach Show in the capital of her home country, but failed to win again, though this helped to establish her in the modeling industry.

She relocated to the US three years later, where her career flourished as she was contracted by numerous brands, and became mostly a swimwear model with great success. Eventually, she opened up her own blog and started her own swimwear line, which contributes greatly to her net worth.

Over the years, she appeared in several music videos as well, by artists such as Zion and Lennox, including her ex-husband. Even though Shannon may not be extremely popular in USA, she is an inspirational figure and meaningful personality to the Hispanic US and worldwide population.

Shadelima’s big screen ventures

As an actress, she’s appeared in only two titles thus far, as she doesn’t seem to be overly interested in pursuing this path. In 2014 she was cast in the Hispanic TV series entitled “El Estimulo”, while five years later, she appeared in two episodes of the comedy TV series entitled “Betty en NY”, also an Hispanic production. Though she is technically considered an actress, Shannon De Lima is not likely to accept too many roles in the years to come, as her interest lies with fashion for the most part.

Love Life: Marc Anthony’s ex-wife

When it comes to her romantic involvements, Shannon doesn’t seem to be too willing to share such information with the public, and thus she keeps even the most credible sources in the dark regarding this matter. Thanks to rumors and a few confirmed allegations, however, some details about her love life prior to her ex-husband can be found. For a few years prior to 2007, Shannon dated Venezuelan actor Coko Manuel Sosa, with whom she has a son named Alejandro Sosa De Lima, born on the 29th of October 2007. Five years later, she met Marc Anthony during the filming of his “Flor Pálida” music video, in which she starred. They started dating soon afterwards, and following three years of a close relationship, they married in a big Hispanic ceremony on the 11th of November 2014, which only the most prominent Hispanic celebrities were invited to. Marc Anthony then took Shannon’s son as his own, and the three began living together at Anthony’s estate in the Dominican Republic. However, after two years of marriage, Marc filed for divorce, finalised on the 13th of February 2017, the reason apparently being that he publicly kissed his ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez.
