While we know a lot about the Mexican pound-for-pound king’s achievements in the sport, how much do we really know about the champ’s personal life? Is he married or is he just dating? Does he have any kids?

Here’s a detailed account of who Saul Canelo Alvarez is married to, where their relationship stemmed from, and who he has been involved with before. This piece will also shed a little light on his kids.

Who is Canelo Alvarez’s wife?

After dating each other, on and off, since 2016, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Fernanda Gómez exchanged vows and got married exactly a week after the Mexican champ fractured Billy Joe Saunders’ orbital bone in May 2021.

The long-time couple had a grand wedding ceremony in their home country of Mexico. The event was closed off and highly exclusive; they said “yes” to each other in front of the altar of the Guadalajara Cathedral on May 15, 2021.

There is a 6-year age gap between the two; Canelo Alvarez’s wife’s age is currently 25 and was born on July 3, 1996. The champ himself is 31-years-old.

Based on her social media presence, it seems Fernanda Gómez is a social media celebrity; Canelo Alvarez’s wife’s Instagram profile has nearly 970,000 followers. Apart from being active on such social platforms, Gómez also reportedly owns and operates a ‘Nailbar & Boutique’ in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Canelo Alvarez’s past relationships

Over the years, Canelo Alvarez has dated many women. His dating history stems back to his high school days. Internet records show that apart from his wife, the Mexican p4p king has dated multiple other women.

His series of relationships kicked off with Karen Beltran, who he started dating right from his high school days. He then moved on to a Mexican model, Valeria Quiroz. Later, at 19-years-old, he matched up with the winner of the 2003 Miss Mexico Universe, Marisol Gonzalez.

Things did not work out with Gonzalez, so he then started going out with actress Kate del Castillo. He never really was in a relationship with Castillo, so when that faded out, he met musician and actress Cynthia Rodriguez in LA.

Before he finally got back with and married Fernanda Gomez, Alvarez dated two other women – Shannon De Lima, a model, and Nelda Sepulveda, his business partner.

How many children does Alvarez have?

Before he even turned 18, Canelo Alvarez already had bagged a number of professional wins and was slowly inching closer to eternal pugilistic fame.

It was around that time, in 2007, when Alvarez had his first kid, Emily Cinnamon Alvarez, with his girlfriend from high school, Karen Beltran.

At the time, both Canelo and Karen were too young to handle a child on their own; however, the champ did not back down from his responsibilities as a teenage father and moved in with Beltran at 16.

While he could not work things out with Karen, he is still very close with his daughter, who is now nearing the age of 15. Emily even shows up to her father’s fights and events from time to time.

He then later met Fernanda Gomez, who he is now married to. With her, he had a daughter, Maria Fernanda Alvarez, in December 2017. They dated for a year but they later called it off. Much like Emily, Alvarez did not back away from any responsibilities as a father to Maria even after splitting up with Gomez initially.

While temporarily separated from Gomez, who is now his wife, Canelo dated his business partner, Nelda Sepulveda, for almost a year. With her, he had his son, Saul Adiel Alvarez. Canelo’s son’s age is now around 3 years and frequently even pops up on his father’s Instagram feed.
