Anthony Ramos’ Fiancée and Children
At present, Anthony is engaged to actress Jasmine Cephas Jones. The couple was a part of the award-winning musical ‘Hamilton,’ and met for the first time in 2014 while rehearsing during the Of-Broadway production of the same. They soon took to each other and shared chemistry both on-stage and off-stage. ‘Hamilton,’ which ran on Broadway from 2015 to 2016, catapulted both talents into the spotlight, where they were praised for their outstanding performances. During their time on the show, the couple fell for each other and started dating in 2015.
It was heavenly to see how comfortable they were with each other, as their real-life relationship transcended to their roles. After dating for a few years, the couple decided to take it up a notch, and on December 24, 2018, they got engaged. A few days later, they announced their engagement on social media through a beautiful post where Anthony wrote, “Thank you for saying yes to writing stories together for the rest of our lives. I’m honored and Blessed to marry you.”
In February 2020, YouTuber and actress Liza Koshy posted a video titled ‘I’M IN RELATIONSHIP • Behind the Scenes with Anthony Ramos.’ The title led to speculations that Anthony might have broken up with Jasmine. However, soon after, it was revealed that the “relationship” in the video was just Anthony’s new single which also features Liza. Thus, the speculations were put to rest, and Anthony was confirmed to still be with Jasmine.
Though the couple hasn’t breached the subject of marriage yet, they are still happily engaged and are in love with each other. Furthermore, their social media account stands as a testimony to their love and is filled with beautiful memories of them together. Though the couple is yet to have children of their own, they are proud parents to their furry babies Nala Jones and Prince Ramos. Love of this kind is extremely scarce and hard to come by. The way these two wonderful human beings came together to spread love is honestly awe-inspiring, and we hope they stay this happy in the coming future.
