Esmeralda Trejo is the daughter of a famous actor, Danny Trejo. Her father Trejo is an American actor. He has appeared in several films including Desperado, Heat, and the From Dusk Till Dawn film series, to name a few. Besides his acting career, Esmeralda’s actor father has been married four times and has five children from his several relationships.

The celebrity dad also has had a troubled history with the law including drug deals, and others. He, nonetheless, would later become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood and the actor has pretty much laid his personal as well as professional life out in the open.

However, the case isn’t so with some of his children. Despite all of them being full-grown adults, only a few of them prefers to remain under the media radar. So, is Esmeralda that kid of Danny or is the star kid rather an off-the-grid person? Know the answers in addition to facts relating to her career and her life as a celebrity kid all in the headers ahead.

When Was Esmeralda Trejo Born; How Old Is She Now?

While Danny has often mentioned most of his kids be it in the interviews or through some other way, one name that gets missed or has been missing since the beginning is that of Esmeralda.

That being so, not even the specifics of her birth date have ever managed to come out in the open. In fact, Esmeralda is so much stranger to the media interest that some fans of Danny even have gone on to question if Trejo is actually his daughter.

Yes, Esmeralda is indeed one of the children of Danny Trejo. And that she might be one of Danny’s older kids; one of whom was born in the late 80s. So, it is believed that Esmeralda too was born somewhere around the same time. However, some people have accordingly taken her age to be somewhere in the mid-30s.

As for why the actor Danny has avoided speaking of Esmeralda is still a question to be answered.

Who Is Esmeralda Trejo‘s Mother? Was She One Of Danny’s Ex-Wives?

The next thing that falls in the spectrum of deep bewilderment is the whatever of Esmeralda’s biological mother. While her father, Danny has had several relationships, the lowdowns as to with whom he had each of his children are quite the perplexing subjects.

In the meantime, Danny’s marital life might be worth taking a look at. The Hollywood veteran has been married four times and has five children including Esmeralda Trejo.

Danny’s first wife’s name is Laura. He met her in 1962, during his release from Youth Training School. At first, Laura’s parents were against their marriage so they married in the backyard of Trejo’s family home. But their marriage didn’t last long as Laura sought separation during Trejo’s second confinement at Youth Training School.

After his first marriage, Danny went on to marry Debbie in 1971 but the couple would divorce each other after four years of courtship in 1975. Following that, the Grindhouse actor married Joanne. They tied the knot the same year Danny divorced Debbie (1975). However, the LA native and Joanne would also part ways just after a couple of years. They separated in 1978.

The now 78-year-old’s last recorded marriage was with Debbie Shreve (often confused with one of his ex-wives, Debbie). Shreve and Danny were husband and wife from 1997 to 2009. Since his separation from his last wife Shreve, Danny hasn’t married yet.

Esmeralda Has Several Siblings

Esmeralda Trejo might be a hard being to catch up on but since she is the daughter of Danny Trejo, she does have some relatives who do have some form of identity over the internet.

Ironically despite being married multiple times, Danny never had children with any of his ex-wives. All the children he fathered are from the time when he was just in relationships with different women. As such, he had his first, Danny Boy during the time he was with Diana Walton whom he dated from 1978 to 1983.

Esmeralda’s father had his other children, Gilbert and Danielle with his other ex-girlfriend, Maeve Crommie. Crommie and the Californian actor were in a relationship from 1986 to 1997. However, concerning Esmeralda’s mother, the Con Air star or the media are yet to provide a legible answer on that.

However, the details about who is her father are yet to be revealed.
