Emma Coronel, the 22-year-old wife of Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman gave birth to twins at a California hospital, according to reports.
It is being reported that Coronel made her way across the border around mid-July and gave birth to twin girls on Aug. 15 at Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Coronel is a former beauty queen who has U.S. citizenship. The children are now qualified for U.S. citizenship because they were born in America.
The LA paper said she returned to Mexico after the twins were born. It also noted that the birth certificates didn't list the father of the girls.
U.S. law enforcement officials were tracing every move Coronel made. They told the LA Times that Coronel has no charges against her and so she wasn't arrested.
Guzman, 54, who is also known as El Chapo, is reportedly a multibillionaire and is believed to be the world's wealthiest drug trafficker.
Coronel is said to be his third or fourth wife. They reportedly met during a contest to choose the queen of the coffee and guayaba festival of Canelas in the state of Durango, according to Mexican broadcaster Univision. Coronel ended up winning the competition and married Guzman when she turned 18 in 2007.
U.S. authorities have a $5 million bounty on Guzman's head and they say the Sinaloa cartel that he runs controls the majority of cocaine and marijuana trafficking into the U.S. from Mexico and Colombia. Guzman made Forbes magazine's list of the 67 World's Most Powerful People two years ago. He ranked No. 41, according to reports.
