“Emma Coronel” Wife of Mexican Drug Lord Gives Birth in California

Emma Coronel, the young wife of Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman gave birth to twins in California after she managed to cross the Mexico-U.S. border in July. The twin girls were born at Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster on August 15, and the 22-year-old Emma returned to Mexico after that. She is an American citizen and her daughters are also eligible for U.S. citizenship, while their father is not listed in the twins birth certificate.


Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is considered the world’s richest drug trafficker and Emma is his fourth wife. The 54-year-old Guzman heads Mexico’s most powerful drug-trafficking hang, while Emma Coronel is a former beauty-queen.

U.S. authorities will reward everybody who is able to catch Guzman with $5 million, while Forbes put him as number 41 in its “World’s Most Powerful People” list for 2010.
