Rocky Lachapel is the guy who kissed the winner of Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 on stage after she was crowned. As soon as he got the opportunity, he rushed up on stage and kissed his wife Francisca Lachapel. He was definitely a happy husband hugging his new beauty queen.
But before the crown and confetti, Rocky and Francisca’s love story started five years ago in New York. In an interview with People en Espanol, Francisca opened up about how she moved to the United States in 2010 to find a better future. She got a job selling pots and pans and is when she met Regina. When Regina became a widow, she asked Francisca to move in with her.
Rocky is Regina’s son. One day, Rocky went to his mother’s house to have coffee and meet her new roommate. His mother played cupid and Francisca and Rocky fell in love. Francisca recalls when her mother-in-law used tell Rocky: “Look at her, she is a good girl, she’s pretty. You have to be with her and help her.”
The couple later married and they are planing to have kids, but in the future, not yet.
For now, the Dominican couple, who lives in New York, needs to figure out how they are going to handle a long distance relationship. Rocky works in New York as an assistant manager of a furniture rental company and he is thinking to transfer to Florida, since his wife –as the new Nuestra Belleza Latina- is going to reside in the Sunshine State.
