Canelo Alvarez and Karen Beltran met each other for the first time as teenagers in high school. The sparks flew immediately between the duo and they started dating. Beltran was apparently Alvarez's first love. However, as it turned out, their relationship was rather short-lived.
In 2007, Canelo Alvarez and Karen Beltran gave birth to a baby girl. They named her Emily Cinnamon Alvarez. Realizing that their relationship was deteriorating, the couple decided to part ways shortly after. Canelo and Karen Beltran didn't end their relationship on a bad note, as they mutually decided to break up and look after their daughter. They both still meet each other on the occasion of Emily's birthday or events at her school.
Speaking about how he reacted to the news of him becoming a father for the first time, Alvarez said:
"I was 16. My reaction was to take my girlfriend to live with me. She was pregnant," Alvarez told Graham Bensinger in a recent interview. "I rented a house for 1000 pesos a month. I brought her to live with me. And I said, 'well alright'. That was that."
After breaking up with Beltran, Alvarez gave birth to two more children, born to different mothers. The number one pound-for-pound boxer said it's a daunting task to manage his professional and personal life at the same time.
"It's very difficult. Too difficult. Because I can't give them (daughters) the same attention. My oldest daughter, I cried with her in Miami because of... many things that happen and it's very difficult for me. I'm on the phone, I talk to them every day, but it's difficult for me to be there in person. I'm either in San Diego, training or whatever," Canelo sai.
