Who is El Chapo’s wife?

Emma is known as the beauty queen after she won the  2007 Coffee and Guava Festival beauty pageant. This was also the time when she met El Chapo for the first time. Each candidate was asked to host a party in honor of their candidacy.

The pair met at the party and it was during this that they decided to get married to each other. El Chapo was Emma’s biggest cheerleader as she contested in the pageant. The pair went on to become parents of twins.

In 2012 Emma gave birth to their twins but decided to not put El Chapo’s name on the birth certificate. At the time of their children’s birth, there was a bounty of five million dollars for his capture. To avoid any problem, she decided to keep El Chapo in the dark.

Now, she is being arrested on multiple charges as authorities allege she also played a role in escaping El Chapo in 2015.
