People think that drug lord El Chapo has had at least 15 children with his many wives and mistresses.
He is married to former beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro, with whom he has twin daughters, Emali Guadalupe and Maria Joaquina.
Who are the children of El Chapo?
Coronel was born in 1989, and on her 18th birthday in 2007, she married El Chapo.
People say that the drug dealer, who was 47 at the time, fell in love with the teenager after seeing her at a beauty pageant in Mexico the same year.
In 2011, when she was 23 years old, Coronel had twin girls.
El Chapo’s name was left off of his birth certificate because a $5 million reward was out for his head at the time.
Emali and Maria are both American citizens and were born in Los Angeles.
Emali Guadalupe is one of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s and his wife Coronel’s twin daughters.
She was born at Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, California, on August 15, 2011.
Before Emali was born, Emali’s mother, Coronel, went to Southern California in the middle of July.
When the twins were two years old, their father, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was arrested in their apartment while he was making breakfast for his family.
They were the only family members who were allowed to see El Chapo before his trial in 2018, and he started crying in court after seeing them.
In December 2019, they went to see El Chapo at the maximum-security prison in Colorado. His lawyer, Mariel Colon, said it was hard for the girls not to be able to hug their dad during the visit because they were behind glass.
Little is known about the nine-year-old and her sister, Maria Joaquina, but it is thought that, before Coronel’s recent arrest, they lived a luxurious life with their mother.
In 2018, the twins’ 7th birthday party was a big deal with a life-size pink Barbie mansion and other over-the-top activities.
Maria Joaquina is the daughter of El Chapo and Coronel. She is the twin sister of Emali.
Both of them are American citizens because they were both born in the US on purpose in 2011.
The names of both twins’ fathers were left off of their birth certificates because Guzman had a $5 million reward on his head.
The children live with Coronel’s family in Sinaloa, which is El Chapo’s home state.
In January 2012, Coronel wrote to her husband Guzman about how much she liked Maria Joaquina, who she called “Kiki.”
She said, “Our Kiki is fearless.” “I’ll give her an AK-47 so that she can hang out with me.”
Who are the other children of El Chapo?
El Chapo is thought to have at least 15 kids from his many relationships and marriages.
They often post about how rich they are on social media, and his sons, who are known as “Chapitos,” are thought to be in charge of the Sinaloa Cartel.
During his marriage to Mara Salazar Hernández, Guzman had his three oldest sons, Ivan Archivaldo Guzman, Jesus Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, and Ovidio Guzman Lopez, who was arrested in January 2023.
His daughter, Alejandrina Gisselle, still stands up for him and once said, “I’m beautiful because of my mother, smart because of my father, and a murderer because of me.”
El Chapo’s second marriage was to a wanted drug runner named Griselda Lopez Perez. Edgar, Ovidio, and Joaquin are their three sons.
Coronel was El Chapo’s third wife. He married her in 2007, before Emali and Maria were born.
Rosa Isela Guzmán Ortiz is a woman from California who El Chapo’s mother says is his oldest daughter. She was born from an affair he had with a “woman in Jalisco.”
Kim Guzman Dolci and Laisha Guzman are also said to be El Chapo’s daughters from his many affairs outside of his marriage. However, not much is known about them.
Will Emma Coronel admit that she was involved in drug trafficking?
On June 10, Coronel pleaded guilty in a federal court in Washington, D.C. to charges of drug trafficking and laundering money.
Since her arrest in February, Coronel has been held in jail without bond. She will stay there until September 15, 2021, when she will be sentenced.
Coronel could get up to life in prison and a fine of up to $10 million if he is found guilty.
Prosecutors say that Coronel was a key part of El Chapo’s 2015 escape from a Mexican prison with the highest level of security.
The former beauty queen, who is now 31 years old, was caught in February after a two-year investigation.
Investigators say that from 2012 to early 2014, she helped her husband tell Sinaloa cartel smugglers about his drug trafficking plans.
After El Chapo was arrested in February 2014, she went to see him in a Mexican prison, where she allegedly kept delivering messages.
In court documents, the FBI said that Coronel, who was born in the US, and her family were very involved in the drug trafficking activities of the cartel.
Prosecutors have also said that she helped Guzman escape from the Altiplano prison in Mexico in July 2015 by digging a mile-long tunnel from his cell.
A witness told FBI agents that she told Guzman’s sons to buy land near the Altiplano prison. This was what the witness said the witness did.
It also said that they asked that person to buy a nearby warehouse, guns, and an armored truck.
After Mexican police caught Coronel in January 2016, they say he started planning another escape.
But El Chapo was sent to the US before that plan could be carried out.
