7. Rosa Isela Guzmán Ortiz
Not much is known about Rosa; however, she once claimed to be El Chapo's daughter. Unfortunately, this caused a series of confusions since neither of El Chapo's family recognized her as a descendant of the Chapo.
As a result, Emma, El Chapo's wife, wrote a letter to various Mexican media in March 2016 concerning the issue. She wrote,
"Yesterday, 4th March, through the media, I found out about a person named Rosa Isela, who claims to be the daughter of Mr Joaquín Guzmán. So I want to comment that when he was detained, Joaquín told me that this woman started writing him letters saying that his mother had told her that he was her father."
"It was the first time he heard from her, and out of courtesy, he answered her and did not deny her, but he could never remember who his mother was, named María Luisa. Therefore, if there really is a birth certificate where Joaquín recognizes her as his daughter, it will be investigated, and what is necessary will be done, even a DNA test will be requested."
Details about César Guzmán Salazar, Griselda Guadalupe Guzmán López, and Laisha Guzmán are not available. They are El Chapo's kids who have managed to stay completely out of the limelight.
Almost all of Joaquín Guzmán's children have followed in their father's footsteps. As a result, they have drawn the attention of many people.
She was born on 20th May 2000 and is currently 21 years old as of 2021. She is also famous for her relationship with rapper NBA YoungBoy since late 2018, with whom she had her son Kentrell Jr. in January 2021.
