The marital issues don’t just exist in the USA but in the whole world, especially among celebrities, or should I say that actually we are concerned with celebrity marital issues.
Otherwise, these problems exist almost in every house, with the exception of a few. Verónica Rubio and Carlos Ponce’s marital problems are also an example of this.
As most of you would know that the divorce rate in the USA is pretty high; however, Puerto Rico has the lowest divorce rate among all other states.
Anyways, I was talking about Verónica Rubio and Carlos Ponce’s marital life. Carlos Ponce is a famous actor hailing from Puerto Rico.
Verónica was his first wife. On the other hand, Verónica is a renowned photographer. But as you all know, that is not why I am writing, and you’re reading about her, is it?
Let’s dive into this topic to find out more and more about Verónica’s life, her relationship with Carlos, her net worth, and many other things.
Who Is Verónica Rubio?
It is reported that Verónica Rubio’s parents came from Cuba in 1956 to the USA. At the time, Fulgencio Batista was the military dictator of Cuba.
Verónica was born on the 24th of November 1972 in Miami, Florida, USA. This means that as of June 2022, she is 49 years old.
Her parents are Mario Rubio (father) and Oriales Rubio (mother). They both originally hail from Cuba, but it became difficult for them to stay in Cuba after the coup.
At the time, the USA was going through some of the most unusual years in its history – the Kennedy assassination, the Cuban missile crisis, the moon landing, the Vietnam War, and many others.
Still, people were coming to the USA hoping for a better future, so that’s what Verónica’s parents did. Not only did her parents come to the States, but also her grandparents.
Her parents obtained US nationality in 1975 and stayed there until their death. Verónica also has one brother named Marco Rubio, who is currently a senator from Florida in the US Senate.
She has more than 2,300 followers on Instagram at @veronica_j19.
Loss Of Her Parents
Verónica Rubio had a great relationship with his parents. Moreover, she was closer to her parents than her brother, Marco.
Losing a parent is unmatched grief. Sadly, Verónica had to go through this grief twice, as her father – when he was 83 – died in 2010 after losing a battle with lung cancer and emphysema.
He took his last breaths in Baptist Hospital of Miami, Florida, USA. Then after nine years, in 2019, Verónica’s mother, Oriales Rubio, died.
Since not many people knew about Verónica at the time, it was confirmed by his brother, Marco, that their mother had left this world.
Her Marital Life With Carlos Pence
It is reported that Verónica and Carlos used to study in the same school, and they both fell in love with each other during their school years.
Clearly, Carlos and Verónica were doing something completely opposite of what their parents thought they did in school.
It’s pretty funny, though, that students who are supposed to worry about their grades are more worried about their love life.
Anyways, Carlos and Verónica were classmates, and that’s how they came close to each other. Some sources claim that before marrying each other, they were in a serious unofficial relationship.
Then they decided to make things official, and in the year 1996, they tied the knot with each other. Together, they are parents of four kids (two biological and two adopted).
Verónica and Carlos’ kids are Giancarlo Ponce (son), Sebastián Ponce(second son), and Savannah and Sienna (twin adopted daughters).
Giancarlo came into this world in 1999, Sebastián in 2001, and they adopted the twins in 2002, which was the same year they were born.
There are many speculations about where did they adopt their daughters. A stronger claim is that these twins were born in Russia and Carlos & Verónica adopted them there.
Carlos & Verónica were married from 1996 to 2010; however, until today, there is indeed no real reason why they decided to get divorced.
Both of them don’t talk much about their marriage. In an interview, Carlos revealed that although they had been married for 14 years, they were together for around 23 years in total.
After Verónica and Carlos’ Divorce
After divorcing each other, both of them married again. Verónica Rubio and her second husband, Chris Boulos, once again became parents of two beautiful kids – a son, Tony, and a daughter, Jaylah.
However, Verónica didn’t provide much information about her second husband beside his name. Sadly, Verónica Rubio’s second marriage also didn’t work.
In 2018, she and Chris got divorced. She says their divorce left a negative impact on her kids, Jaylah and Tony.
On the other hand, Carlos began dating Ximena Duque in 2010, the same year he and Verónica got divorced. But Ximena and Carlos did not marry and ended their relationship in 2016, six years later.
After two years, in 2018, Carlos married Karina Banda, and as of June 2022, they are still together; they don’t have kids together, though.
Verónica Rubio’s Ex-husband, Carlos Ponce
His complete name is Carlos Armando Ponce Freyre Jr. He hails from Santurce, Peurto Rico, and he was born on the 4th of September 1972.
As of June 2022, he is 49 years old. He stepped into the acting, modeling, and music industry in 1993 and has been at it ever since.
He has married twice and been in one relationship so far. He is among the most famous Puerto Rican actors.
Some of his most notable projects are “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo,” “Meet Me In Miami,” “Just My Luck,” “Rio,” and many others. Currently, he is living in Miami, Florida, with his wife, Karina Banda.
This was a detailed look at the personal, professional, and marital life of Verónica Rubio, her marriage with Carlos Ponce, their divorce, and some other things.
