This post is our personal nemesis, our great white whale if you will. For the last six weeks, we have been searching and scouring for information on Nelson Cruz's wife, or Nelson Cruz's girlfriend.
We knew he was dating a woman in 2005, who was mentioned on the Texas Rangers website. The best information we could find, suggested that the two broke up shortly before 2007.
Later research found that he is infact married, as an ESPN.com article stated:
Cruz does enjoy coming to the Bronx. That's because Cruz loves to visit his older sister, Olga, and her family. They live, in the Bronx, just a few blocks from Yankee Stadium. Cruz's wife's family also lives nearby, so Cruz always spends time here during the offseason."
We continued on. In recent days, we learned that Nelson Cruz married Solanyi Genao on Christmas Day (though embarrassingly enough, no clue what year). Strong information suggests the two have one child together.
So, there. We have some info, though nothing is concrete. Appears our great while whale continues to swim out there. We'll keep you posted if we can get any concrete information following the World Series when stories are sure to surface on Nelson Cruz's personal life.
Thanks to reader Shayne for helping us out with this post. Appreciate the heads up!
