Ana Araujo is Mexican actor Pablo Lyle’s wife. The couple was married in 2014 during their son, Mauro’s, baptism in Mazatlan, along the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Araujo was pictured alongside her husband as he appeared in court in Miami to answer to charges of battery. On March 31, 2019, Lyle, 32, punched 63-year-old Juan Ricardo Hernandez in Florida during a road-rage incident, prosecutors allege. The incident occurred on the Dolphin Expressway as Lyle was on his way to Miami International Airport. Lyle was a passenger in the car.
The victim, who was of Cuban descent, was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital and died on April 4. Lyle was interrogated by homicide police who later determined to charge him with battery. Hernandez suffered a broken skull and internal bleeding, authorities said, via CBS Miami.
Here’s what you need to know the love of Lyle’s life:
1. After Araujo & Lyle First Met, They Then Went for 8 Years Without Seeing Each Other Again
Hola magazine reported in 2014 that after Lyle and Araujo first met, they went for eight years without seeing each other again. Lyle told the magazine, via Google Translate, “We had short summer romance when she was fourteen and I was sixteen. Eight years later, two years ago, Ana came to Mexico, and when I saw her, I felt the same again.”
2. Their Wedding Guests Were Surprised as They Had Come Together to Celebrate the Baptism of the Couple’s Son
The couple surprised the guests at their son, Mauro’s, baptism in 2014 as the party turned into a wedding. Mexican actress Sofia Castro served as Mauro’s godmother, according to Hola. Lyle had earlier jokingly told the magazine that he had “adopted [Castro] as a little sister because she is basically a child.” In the wake of Lyle’s arrest, Castro expressed her support for him in an Instagram post that read, “He knows that I love him, that I adore him, he is my compadre, my brother and that I am with him above all things.”
Araujo’s daughter from a previous relationship, Arantza, 10, served as flower girl at her mother’s wedding to Lyle. Hola reported at the time of the wedding that Lyle treats Arantza as if she were his own. Lyle once told Hola, “I want to be the best example for my children, be happy and make people happy.”
3. Lyle Has Told Police That He Punched Hernandez Because He Was Scared for His Family
During his questioning by police, Lyle told detectives that he punched Hernandez in self-defense because he was scared for the safety of his family. In the wake of his initial hearing in court, Lyle posted a $5,000 bond and was released while wearing an ankle monitor. The Miami Herald reports that Lyle’s charges could still be upgraded to second-degree murder or manslaughter.
Various media reports have said that Lyle’s children were in the car when the incident occurred. Lyle’s lawyer, Hugo Gonzalez, told El Universal, via Google Translate, “Once he appears in court, he will be able to present all the evidence required to determine his responsibility in the event and the degree of his criminal guilt.” Lyle’s bail allows him to travel to Mexico.
