Alberto Del Rio aka Alberto El Patron has announced that the mother of his three children has passed away.
El Patron posted a series of posts where he shared the sad news of Angela Velkei’s death. He noted that Velkei got ill in April and thanked fans for supporting them through her health issues.
In a statement that El Patron posted, he noted that Velkei passed away on April 30.
“Angela was an exceptional human being and an exemplary mother to my three children,’ El Patron’s note reads. “I thank each and everyone who went to donate blood and platelets, to the media that spread the word so that more people could go to help us and the whole family that is present for my children in this very difficult moment in their short lives.”
El Patron wrote that Velkei fought with all her might until her last breath. He wrote that she’s still watching over their children Sofia, Stephanie, and Joseph from heaven. The note continues:
“In many moments where the world turned its back on me with words of encouragement and a sincere hug. Thank you so much, Angela. We miss you like you have no idea. But I swear to you that our children will grow up to be good men and women like you always asked me to. Dad will be here for them. Rest in peace. In this world, you were always my angel and so I always let you know. Now you truly become an angel watching over us from heaven. You will always be my angel. Our angel. We love you, Angela. Thanks for being you.”
El Patron was trying to get multiple blood donors for Velkei before her death. He posted a video on his social media and asked for the support of all his followers to find blood donors to help Velkei, who was in a serious condition.
El Patron and Velkei got married in 2012 and divorced in 2016. We extend our deepest condolences to El Patron and Velkei’s family.
