Marc Anthony is so enthusiastic about becoming a minority partner
in the NFL's Miami Dolphins that he's bought a new home in Miami.
"I bought a condo today in Miami," Anthony, 40, told PEOPLE Monday night during halftime of the Miami Dolphins vs. Indianapolis Colts football game at Miami's Landshark Stadium. "When we are through decorating the condo, it will be the sexiest place in town!"

's new pad is in the Icon Brickell, a new, three-tower condominium designed by Philippe Starck. The stunning complex, which includes the Viceroy Miami Hotel, is near Miami's downtown and financial district, just a few minutes from South Beach.
In April, Anthony and Lopez, 40, spent a weekend with their children at Viceroy Miami and Icon Brickell, after Anthony's concert in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in nearby Hollywood, Fla.
The couple met with the Icon Brickell's developer Jorge Perez and got a personal tour of several condos. Though they looked at other Miami-area condo buildings, they decided on this one.
"We are not selling our homes in New York or Los Angeles, we are just adding Miami," Anthony tells PEOPLE. "Now that I am involved with the Dolphins, I am busy working and see a different set of stresses than I experience being a father. So I want to be close by. And we love Miami."
