Despite their 33-year age difference and the long distance they experienced when they first started dating in 2014 – he lived in New York and she in Madrid – nothing was going to get in the way of their love. Alejandra, who first met her now husband through her family, previously told HOLA!, “I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life. It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path.”
