Marc Anthony: Son Max Has “Good Shot” at Being Football Player

Forget singing! Marc Anthony wants his son Max to become a football player!

"There's no question that my son Max is going to be a linebacker of some sort," he said at an NFL press conference in NYC Tuesday. "He's showing more promise every day!"

Anthony – who became a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins after buying stake in the team – is excited to bring the fun of football to one-year-old twins Max and Emme.

"Being born and raised here in New York, football and baseball have been ever present in our household," he said.

"I think that the twins… Well, Max, anyway, has a good shot!" Anthony said, laughing.
