Singer Marc Anthony, 31, has to pass on Sept. 13's inaugural Latin Grammy Awards because of complications having to do with his wife's pregnancy. "At this time more than ever, I need to retreat and be with my family," he said in a statement reported by the Associated Press. Anthony, nominated in six categories (including record of the year and song of the year), was supposed to sing a duet with Jennifer Lopez. He has been married to the 1993 Miss Universe, Dayanara Torres, 25, since May 10. Their baby is due in February.
