Who is Carlos Rivera's wife?

Carlos Rivera has been going steady for a few years now with Cynthia Rodríguez, a fellow contestant on La Academia, where she finished the season off in fourth place.

The two are extremely private about their relationship, so don't expect to see many photos of the couple together if you scroll on their individual Instagram pages.

Cynthia works as TV host on Azteca America, and is also a singer, whose album "Soy" was released back in 2006. In addition to being a contestant on La Academia, Cynthia also appeared on the reality competition Desafio de Estrellas, where she was voted off shortly before the final round.

Are Cynthia and Carlos married?

Cynthia has only spoken out about her relationship one time, and made it clear that it would be the first and only instance she would ever address the topic. Chatting with her "family" on TV Azteca's Todo un Show in 2019, she revealed that both she and Carlos decided to protect the privacy of their relationship so as to avoid unfounded rumors and media prodding.

"As you all know, we have a very discrete relationship," the TV host said in Spanish. "We decided on day one that we would handle it this way because we have something so beautiful, a love so strong, a love where we love each other freely, where we support each other, protect each other, and take care of each other."

"That's why we don't want anyone to give their opinions of whether they like [our relationship], don't like it, agree with it, don't agree with it, that's why we don't share anything," she continued. 

Asked point blank whether she and Carlos had tied the knot in secret, Cynthia said that at that point, in 2019, that they had not. It's unclear if they've walked down the aisle since.

"Today, I want to respond and say that I will never again speak out about my relationship because I don't want it to seem like I'm taking advantage of the moment [Carlos] is having, since thank God he is having a really great moment and I hope he continues to excel, but I have also worked really hard," she went on during her chat with TV Azteca.

"I've worked for 14 years non stop and I'd like, if I'm going to be spoken about, to have my work spoken about, too. Not only that I am the girlfriend or the partner of [Carlos]. Even though I'm super proud," she gushed.

The two celebrated an adorable Valentine's Day where Cynthia thanked her other half for every day and every year in which their love grows.
