How Old Is Alejandra Fernández Now?
Alejandra Fernández is 39 years old. She was born on March 11, 1984, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The Mexican national belongs to the Piesecs birth sign and is of Hispanic ancestry. Though she is not the biological daughter of Vicente Fernández and his wife, Maria Del Refugio Abarca Villaseñor, she began living with the couple when she was about 40 days old.
This was because her birth mother wanted her to spend some time with the family, but the singer’s family became fond of her and pleaded for her to stay. Alejandra Fernández lived with them till she was about four to five years old before her mother demanded that she be sent to her. Unfortunately, the separation affected Alejandra Fernández, Vicente’s health, and the rest of the family. This left her birth mother with no option but to send her back to Vicente and his wife, who later adopted her.
Alejandra had a great childhood, as her father had already become a name to reckon with as she grew up. She grew up on their magnificent 1000-acre property in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, which is owned by the family. Vicente Fernández’s daughter grew up under his watch, that of his wife and their other three sons. Unfortunately, Vicente died on December 12, 2021, at the age of 81, due to complications that he had after undergoing a cervical spine operation.
Though little is known about Alejandra Fernández’s education, she is well-educated. The names of the elementary and high schools that the singer’s daughter attended are not known. Meanwhile, she earned a degree in fashion from a reputable university.

Her biological mother is Gloria Abarca Villaseñor, who is the singer’s wife’s sister, while the identity of her biological father is not known. Based on the fact that the identity of her biological father is not known, a Mexican journalist named Olga Wonart claimed that her father is Vicente.
The journalist further stated that the singer had an affair with his wife’s sister, which resulted in the birth of Alejandra Fernández. This claim was made in one of the journalist’s unauthorized biography, which she wrote about the singer. Meanwhile, as the public waited for the singer to react to the claims, he chose to focus on his career, totally ignoring the claims. However, following the singer’s past of being close to ladies, a part of the public believed the journalist’s claim.
Who is Alejandra Fernández Husband?
At the moment, Alejandra Fernández does not have a husband, as she divorced her husband. She was previously married to José Luis Altamirano, a popular Mexican composer and pianist known for his extraordinary works. The estranged couple met each other and became friends around 2012.

They eventually tied the knot on May 24, 2014, in a glamorous wedding ceremony held at Jose Maria Escriva Church in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Her father walked her down the aisle while all her family members were there to celebrate with her. Unfortunately, their marriage could not stand the test of time, as they divorced in late 2015 without welcoming any children.
At the time of their divorce, they did not reveal the reason, but José Luis Altamirano later revealed that they called it quits because they could not agree on things.
