Personal life[edit]

On 11 December 1982 she married Christian Toro Ibler, a respected and well known Colombian publicist, in a Roman Catholic ceremony that took place at the Church of Our Lady of the Waters in Bogotá officiated by Fr Jesús Adán Londoño Rodas and attended by, among others, the then-President Belisario Betancur Cuartas and First Lady Rosa Helena Álvarez Yepes who were not only the guests of honour, but also the godparents of the couple for the ceremony.[4][5] The marriage however, did not last long and the couple divorced shortly after.

In 1987 she married Juan Manuel Santos Calderón, then Deputy Director of El Tiempo, this time in a civil ceremony.[6]
