However, Fernandez and his wife Dona adopted Alejandra since they had three sons but no daughter of their own. Regarding the adoption of Alejandra, her adoptive father said,

“Alejandra is Gloria’s daughter, a sister of my wife. But since I didn’t have daughters… Alejandra’s story, she was, I don’t know, 40 days old, so it was my birthday, and I lived in Guadalajara, and they left the girl. Then I played with her until she got sleepy. So I put her in the crib and told her “go to sleep” and she fell asleep. With that, she beat me.”

Alejandra stayed with them and became a part of the family from that moment. She was the family’s youngest member and grew up with her three elder brothers. Undoubtedly, she is loved by all her family.

Alejandra’s biological mother wanted her daughter back when she was four years old. As per Vicente,

“She is my little girl to me, and there was a time when my sister-in-law took her from me. I would go to the farm and roar until she noticed that I was getting thinner. My sisters-in-law are like my sisters. Then she saw me suffer so much that she brought Alejandra back to me and told me to keep her.”

The Mexican beauty then graduated with a degree in fashion design. However, she had no idea that she was adopted until she was old enough to understand.
