Mexican Drug Lord: El Chapo faces biggest US drugs trial
Here's our lowdown on the American-born beauty queen who went on to marry one of the world's most notorious drug lords.

Who is Emma Coronel Aispuro?
Emma Coronel Aispuro is the wife of Mexican drug baron Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman.
The gang boss is accused of running a drug empire that matched Pablo Escobar's.

He reportedly fell for the Mexican-American former beauty queen when she was 17 and he was 47.

Her rancher father, Ines Coronel Barreras, is said to have cultivated marijuana and opium poppies and her uncle is slain drug kingpin Igancio 'Nacho' Coronel, an important member of the Sinaloa Cartel and one of El Chapo's most trusted men.

How did she meet El Chapo?
El Chapo is said to have fallen in love with Emma Coronel when he saw her at a beauty pageant in the Mexican state of Durango in 2007.

She was competing in the local Coffee and Guava Festival in 2007, when she was just 17 and El Chapo exerted his influence to ensure the girl won. El Chapo, 47 at the time, wooed the young Coronel, who eventually married him on her 18th birthday.

In an interview with the LA Times she said: "I would say what won me over was his way of talking, how he treated me, the way we began to get along - first as friends and from that came everything else.

"He tends to win over people by his manner of being, of acting, the way he treats people in general."

Do they have any children?
Coronel gave birth to two twin girls in 2011, when she was 23.

Their father's name was left blank on the birth certificate because there was a $5 million bounty on his head at the time.

The children were born in LA and are American citizens.
