They welcomed their eldest child, Elijah, in August 2014. Anaya and Romero married in a low-key ceremony on April 4, 2015, when their son was seven months old.
They had two more sons—Phillip Jr. (born February 19, 2016) and Noel (born December 20, 2017). Between the Romero-Anaya brood and their siblings’ children, there are a dozen boys in the family and no girls, which still amazes them.
