If you’re into music in any way, you must’ve heard the name Vicente  Fernández, the king of Ranchera music.

But how much do you know about his daughter Alejandra Fernández?

This article outlines all you need to know about the daughter of the music legend. It discusses her early life, family, career, and net worth.

Early Life

Early Life

Alejandra Fernández was born on March 11, 1984 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. While nothing is known about her biological father, her biological mother is Gloria Abarca Villasenor.

Vicente Fernández and his wife Maria del Refugio adopted Alejandra when she was only 40 days old. The little girl became the youngest member of the music legend’s family.

Although she’s adopted, Alejandra isn’t a stranger to Vicente Fernández and his wife. She’s the biological daughter of Gloria Abarca Villasenor, Vicente’s sister-in-law.

There’s no proven evidence about the reasons behind the decision to adopt Alejandra. However, reports vary. Some say that it was because they wanted a daughter with their three boys. 

On the other hand, some reports allegedly claim that Alejandra is Vicente’s biological daughter from an affair with his sister-in-law, and adopting her was an attempt to cover that affair. Yet, the truth remains a secret.

Alejandra was raised in Guadalajara along with her three older siblings. She shared a special bond with her father, as she was the youngest and only daughter after three older brothers.

Family and Marriage

Family and Marriage

Alejandra is part of a large family with strong ties. She has three older brothers: Vicente Jr., Gerardo, and Alejandro.

Interestingly, all of her brothers are prominent names in the entertainment industry. For instance, Vicente Jr. is the oldest brother. He’s a famous Mexican singer, following in his father’s footsteps. The middle brother is Gerardo, who keeps a low profile and doesn’t share his siblings interest in the entertainment business. 

The youngest of her siblings, and perhaps the most famous, is Alejandro. He’s a singer with a strong fanbase and has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

In 2014, Alejandra got married to the pianist Jose Luis Altamirano after dating for a couple of years. Unfortunately, that marriage was short-lived as the couple separated in 2015.

Nothing much is known about the reasons behind the divorce. In addition, there are no reports of any children. Since then, Alejandra has been single, focusing only on her career.


Although the entire family works in entertainment, Alejandra chose a different career path. She is a renowned businesswoman.

Alejandra has a degree in fashion design, which was her launching point into the world of business. 

For starters, she works as a fashion designer and even started her own handbag brand Alleza. This business thrived from 2011 to 2020. However, it has gone out of business now. Nothing has been said about the reasons behind this shut down.

Alejandra is also the owner of the Unicenter Shopping Center, which hosts hundreds of employees in different professions.

Net Worth

Alejandra Fernández has a net worth of $2 million. She has accumulated such wealth through her business endeavors. Now, she leads a luxurious life in Guadalajara, Mexico.
