The interesting fact is that Derbez's parents were never married; instead, they gave birth to him in 1991 when they were dating each other. Unfortunately, after some years of his birth, his parents got separated. 

Reason Behind Derbez's Parents' Divorce

If you are willing to know about White Elephant actor Derbez's parents' unsuccessful love life, then let us make it clear that his parents got separated after five months after his birth. 

His parents' relationship ended sourly because of his father's affair with Victoria Ruffo, a Mexican actress. The former couple started having disputes in 1990 and got separated in late 1991 or early 1992. 

Since then, Derbez has been living with his lovely mother, Silvana, as she got custody of her child. As a result, Derbez has stated that he loves his mother more than his father. 

Did You Know? Silvana was pregnant when her ex-boyfriend Eugenio cheated on her by having a romantic relationship with Ruffo. 

Derbez's Father Was Married Thrice

As mentioned earlier, Derbez's parents were never married and got separated right after his birth. Soon after separation, his father Eugenio married Victoria Ruffo and gave birth to a beautiful child named José Eduardo Derbez

After some years of Jose's birth, Eugenio divorced Ruffo and married another woman named Alessandra Rosaldo, with whom he shares a beautiful daughter Aitana Derbez. Unfortunately, this relationship also could not go further and ended in 2020.
