Puerto Rican singer and actress Millie Corretjer met, enthralled, and married former professional boxer, Oscar De La Hoya within a few months. They remained married for almost 2 decades and welcomed 3 children together.
Their kids are Oscar (17), Nina (15), and Victoria (9).
When their marriage ended, it didn’t seem like they wanted to get a divorce but it eventually happened. They were separated for 6 years until the former boxer turned musician got into another official relationship while still legally hitched to Corretjer, and decided to file for divorce in January 2023.
Knowing Oscar, this seems to be his modus operandi because this was a repetition.
Oscar De La Hoya Met and Married Millie Corretjer while Still Engaged to Another Woman
Millie Corretjer’s ex-husband is former professional boxer, Oscar De La Hoya who decided to start up a career in music in the 2000s.
Milli on the other hand has had a career in the music industry since 1995 and has released about 3 studio albums. The third album was released in 1999 and titled Amar es un Juego which earned her a gold album in Puerto Rico.
At the start of Oscar’s musical career, he was introduced to the Puerto Rican artist and he insisted on having her on his music video. They met courtesy of this and then started a relationship shortly after meeting.
However, it would be important to note that Oscar had been in a relationship with Shanna Moakler. They dated for 3 years from 1997 to 2000. She was a former Miss USA and an actress.
In fact, at the time Oscar met Millie, he was engaged to be married to Shanna but swiftly jumped ship after meeting the Puerto Rican singer. He broke up with the model in 2000.
By October 5, 2001, Millie and Oscar got married in San Juan, in a private ceremony attended by just family and close friends.
The paparazzi were warded off from the ceremony so much so that the couple had to cover themselves in sheets to prevent preying eyes and cameras.
Corretjer and De La Hoya were married from then until December 4, 2016, when they separated. However, they remained legally joined until the former boxer filed for divorce from Millie on January 6, 2023. The former boxer cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.
Up until the time for filing the divorce, Oscar De La Hoya and the granddaughter of former Nationalist Secretary General and poet, Juan Antonio Corretjer, were married for 22 years.
Meet The 3 Children Millie Corretjer has with Her Husband, Oscar
Through the 15 years of marriage between the singers, they had 3 children. The kids’ birth was spread through a period of 9 years beginning from the first born in 2005 and then the last child was welcomed in 2014. Let’s meet them;
Oscar Gabriel De La Hoya Jr. – 17 years old
The first child Millie welcomed with her then-husband was born on December 29, 2005. He is still a young man and hasn’t quite been in the spotlight so much but with the fame of both parents, he may not escape from stardom.
Already, he has been featured on social media posts by both parents where they celebrate him on his birthdays. Almost a year after his parent’s separation, Oscar De La Hoya posted a picture of both of them at a baseball game.
Lauren Nina Nenitte De La Hoya – 15 years old
Nina was born exactly on her brother’s second birthday, on December 29, 2007. As such, the brother and sister share the day and celebrate on the same day, every year.
Just like with her brother, Nina has been away from the media and spotlight but we also don’t believe it would be for much longer.
She has made cameos on her parents’ social media. There is one video collage of 5-year-old Nina on her father’s Instagram where she was captured working out and boxing with Oscar. The proud father captioned the upload ‘Golden Nina’ taking the ‘Golden’ from his ‘Golden Boy’ nickname to add to his daughter’s name.
Maybe, in the future, Nina would grow to follow in her father’s footsteps and be a professional boxer.
Victoria Lauren Rose De La Hoya – 9 years old
If Victoria had been born 16 days earlier than her birthday, she would have shared the same day with her older siblings. However, she came on January 14, 2014, and has been described by her father, as a special child.
Her birth was kept secret but upon revelation when she was almost a year old, Oscar revealed that she came when he was really down.
In the story, the former boxer turned singer, Golden Boy stated that he was down but had started rising in victory when Millie bore Victoria. This was the inspiration behind naming her that.
Just like with her older siblings, she has made cameos on her parent’s social media handles. For now, that is all the media exposure she and her siblings have.
The former boxer, Oscar, is content with having joint custody of his children with Millie. He has no qualms with the singer having total custody of them and him having visiting privileges. He is also willing to pay spousal support and child support to Millie.
Milli Corretjer’s Husband, Oscar, had Other Children from Previous Relationships
Safe for the above-discussed trio, Oscar De La Hoya had 3 other children from his previous relationships. Back on February 18, 1998, he and his then-girlfriend, Toni Alvarado welcomed a son named Jacob. Jacob is a real estate graduate working as a sales development representative.
In the same year Jacob arrived, Oscar welcomed another son with another woman. The boy named Devon De La Hoya was born on November 20, 1998, to Oscar and his ex-girlfriend, Angelicque McQueen. Devon takes after his father in the boxing world.
Millie Corretjer’s husband for 15 years also had another child with an ex-girlfriend. With the former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler, he had a daughter named Atiana De La Hoya. His first daughter was born on March 29, 1999.
Millie Corretjer’s Husband Has Moved On to Another Woman Just Like He Did with Her
Oscar De La Hoya did it with 49-year-old Millie Corretjer and he did it to her too. Although hers was somewhat different he was still linked with the Puerto Rican singer when he moved on.
During the period of their separation, Oscar went on to start a relationship with other women. Granted, they were separated but they were still legally married.
Back in June 2021, 5 years after the split, Oscar started a relationship with sportscaster, Holly Sanders. They went Instagram official in November of the same year.
On February 14, 2022, The Golden Boy gifted his most recent love interest a red Ferrari car that got tongues wagging.
Oscar has taken to social media several times to praise his new woman. He confessed that Holly makes him feel fulfilled like King Kong.
