Claudia Sheinbaum is a politician, scientist, writer, and academic who was the head of government of Mexico City from 2018 to 2023.

She is also the presidential candidate of the Morena party for the 2024 elections. She has been a close ally and supporter of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), the current president of Mexico, since the 1990s. They both belong to the same political movement, the Fourth Transformation, that allegedly seeks to fight corruption, inequality, and poverty in the country.

AMLO is a politician who has been the president of Mexico since 2018. He was previously the head of government of Mexico City from 2000 to 2005, and the leader of the PRD and Morena parties. He has four sons from two marriages: José Ramón, Andrés Manuel, Gonzalo Alfonso and Jesús Ernesto.

Claudia Sheinbaum was married to Carlos Imaz, a former PRD politician and delegate of Tlalpan, from 1987 to 2016. They have two children: Raquel and Alberto. She is currently married to Jesús María Tarriba, a businessman and activist, since 2023.

The rumor that Claudia Sheinbaum has a son with AMLO’s son started in 2018 when a website called El Ruinaversal published a satirical article claiming that Sheinbaum and José Ramón López Beltrán, AMLO’s eldest son, had a secret affair and a child together. The article was meant to be a parody of the political scandals and gossip that often surround Mexican politicians. However, some people took it seriously and shared it as if it were true. The rumor was also spread by some political opponents of Sheinbaum and AMLO, who tried to discredit them and their families.

Both Sheinbaum and López Beltrán have denied the rumor and clarified that they have no relation other than being part of the same political project. They have also denounced the fake news and the attacks on their personal lives. They have asked the public to verify the information they receive and to focus on the real issues that affect the country.

Therefore, the whole thing is a false rumor that seeks to undermine the image of the Morena Presidential Candidate.
