PROMISED: Former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, 28, says her current divorce proceedings with singer Marc Anthony will remain amicable. “We are both very responsible, that’s all we want for our kids, and there’s no need to do it any other way,” she tells Access Hollywood. The couple married in May 2000 in Las Vegas, briefly separated, then renewed their vows in Puerto Rico in December 2002. They have two young children, Cristian and Ryan. Meanwhile, Anthony, 35, who has been seen with Jennifer Lopez, has postponed his summer tour, which was due to begin June 1 in San Juan. “Due to the delay in production of my two albums, I have chosen to postpone my Nada Personal tour until November,” he said in a statement. “Instead, I will allocate the summer months to the promotion of my new CDs.”
