Fat Joe, a Bronx rapper, and Lorena, his wife, were on the verge of splitting up in 2012. Fortunately, things didn’t get much worse after that. After 25 years of marriage, the couple still displays their family bliss on social media.

Fat Joe And Lorena Cartagena Are Both Hispanic
Fat Joe, whose true name is Joseph Antonio Cartagena, and his wife Lorena Cartagena share a Hispanic ancestry.
Though the vocalist of “Hands On You” is an American citizen (born and reared in The Bronx), his parents’ ancestors are from outside the country. Ernesto Delgado, his father, is Cuban, and Marie Cartagena, his mother, is Puerto Rican.
While the rapper’s parents’ ethnicity is obvious, Lorena’s family history was cleared up thanks to the identification of her husband’s brother. Luis Miguel Rios is her brother’s name. When you combine her surname with the fact that she frequently employs the Spanish language in her social media posts, it’s clear she’s Hispanic.
They Have Been Married Since the 1990s
Joe’s devotion to his wife is admired by his fans. Since 1995, the couple has been married. Azaryah Cartagena, their 14-year-old daughter, is their only child.
Joey Cartagena and Ryan Cartagena are the rapper’s other two sons, in addition to Azzy. Joey, the composer’s oldest son, suffers from Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (ASD).
Joey’s illness was discussed in depth by Xappeal in a 2010 interview. When the rapper’s eldest son was born, he was still fairly young and hesitant to accept responsibility. Joey’s mother didn’t last long, and he was left to raise Joey with his dad.
Lorena Is Grateful To Have The Rapper As Her Partner
Fat Joe and his wife are a match made in heaven! The couple’s affection for one other hasn’t waned despite being together for more than two decades. Indeed, if the numerous posts on Instagram are any indicator, it appears to be rising by the day.
Joe’s wife, on the other hand, is very public about her love and admiration for him. Every Father’s Day, she pours her heart out for her husband. She referred to him as her “soulmate and & one of the greatest fathers” to their children on Father’s Day in 2019. She then expressed her gratitude for his sacrifices and hard work in ensuring the happiness of the family.
It’s evident from the love-filled posts that Joe and Lorena have not only the same ethnicity but also the same level of love and respect for one another. However, the couple has not been immune to the difficulties that come with marriage. Lorena allegedly filed for divorce in 2012 after discovering Joe was cheating on her, according to Yahoo.
Fortunately, the rumor appears to have died down, as the couple continues to flaunt their family bliss on social media.
