Emma Coronel Aispuro Career


In 2006, after meeting Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán for the first time, Emma Coronel Aispuro put her name in contention for the following year’s local Coffee and Guava Festival in Canelas, Durango. Each contestant had to throw a party in honor of their candidacy and Emma’s took place on Three Kings Day 6th January in 2007. The day of Emma’s party, El Chapo flooded the town with hundreds of armed men and publicly announced his intentions to marry her. That year she was voted the local Coffee and Guava Queen over four other contestants. On coronation day, El Chapo appeared with three bands to celebrate Coronel’s crowning. Her reign as Coffee and Guava Queen ended with her wedding to El Chapo. The crown was then passed down to the first runner-up.

Personal life and family

Emma Coronel met El Chapo in 2006 at a party that her father organized. Officially a cattle rancher in La Angostura, Inés Coronel Barreras is said to have cultivated marijuana and opium poppies. Barreras is related to Ignacio “Nacho” Coronel Villareal, a former Sinaloa Cartel Chief who was killed in a shootout with Mexican Security forces in 2010. Emma’s father was sanctioned by the United States Department of the Treasury under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation for coordinating drug trafficking operations for Guzman. Emma Coronel’s brother, Inés Omar Coronel Aispuro, was also arrested at the same time as her father.


On 2nd July  2007, El Chapo and Emma Coronel Aispuro married. Only a few guests attended and the ceremony was surrounded by armed security guards.”I would say what won me over was his way of talking, how he treated me, the way we began to get along — first as friends and from that came everything else,” Coronel said. “He tends to win over people by his manner of being, of acting, the way he treats people in general.” – Emma Coronel Aispuro during her 2016 Telemundo Special


In the summer of 2012, Coronel traveled to Lancaster (north of Los Angeles) to give birth to twins at Antelope Valley Hospital. The children thus became  American citizens by Jus soli like their mother, as well as by Jus sanguinis, having been born of an American mother. The twins were born around 3:50 pm. Their father’s name was left blank on the birth certificate because there was a $5 million bounty for him at the time.

Media appearances

On 8th January 2016, Coronel gave her first media interview. The exclusive Telemundo interview, conducted by Anabel Hernández, a Fellow of the University of California, Berkeley, Graduate School of Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program, was titled La Reina de El Chapo (“The Queen of El Chapo”). During this interview, she argued that the life of her husband was in danger in prison and she begged for justice on his behalf.

Guzmán is named as the ‘biggest drug lord of all time’ or ‘the godfather of the drug world’ and has surpassed the likes of Pablo Escobar. Guzmán was first captured in 1993 in Guatemala and was extradited and sentenced to 20 years in prison in Mexico for murder and drug trafficking. He bribed prison guards and escaped from a federal maximum-security prison in 2001. He was wanted by the governments of Mexico and the United States and by INTERPOL. The U.S. offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture, and the Mexican government offered a reward of 60 million pesos (approximately $3.8 million). He was arrested a second time in Mexico on 22 February 2014, found inside a fourth-floor condominium in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, and was captured without any gunshots. Guzmán escaped again in July 2015 through a 1.5 km (0.93 mi) tunnel that led to a construction site.[22] He was recaptured by Mexican marines and Federal Police following a shoot-out on 8 January 2016.[23] He was extradited to the United States on 19 January 2017 to face criminal charges related to his leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel.

El Chapo has been married thrice, the first in 1977 with Alejandrina Maria Salazar Hernández with whom he had three children. He then married Griselda López Pérez and had four children. In 2007, he remarried 18-year-old beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro to extend his family. 

Almost all of his family members are involved in drug trafficking, and many of them have been killed by their Arch rivals Los Zetas, including his brother and sons.
