The comedian Eugenio Derbez is one of the most recognized characters in Mexican comedy. However, many details of his personal life remain hidden. This time, during an interview with communicator Yordi Rosado, the creator of XH Derbez, He was honest about different passages of his life.
Among them, the moment he found out that he would be a father for the first time with Gabriel Michelle, who was the mother of Aislinn Derbez. Eugenio recalled that he did not feel ready to be a father when his ex-partner became pregnant, since he was still very young and she still did not have the financial solvency to support a child.
As he said: “I was 23 years old, and the truth is that (Gabriel) and I got along very badly. And when she tells me ‘I’m pregnant’, I felt like the world had ended. I said: ‘My career, my dreams, everything, this is where they came from. They finished’. And I panicked and told him ‘I don’t want to be a dad’. So she said ‘go away, I don’t want to see you again. I’m going to have my daughter, I don’t want to know anything about you’” he expressed during the meeting available on YouTube.
Eugenio recalled that, despite not wanting to become a father, he had no intention of breaking ties with his first-born either:
“I did not want to be a father, I did not want there to be a son of mine walking around, I was terrified. I didn’t want to be a dad, she did. We ended up fighting. Then I half returned when the girl was born, half we tried, because I was very clear that I did not want to leave a daughter lying around, I wanted to take responsibility.
“I had nothing to drop dead about, I was studying cinema, I lived with my parents,” continued Eugenio, who described his economic situation as especially bad. The reason why he had to work in different trades, including as a waiter or windshield wiper. Likewise, Eugenio revealed that he had serious problems with his parents due to the pregnancy of his then-partner.
Despite the difficult situationEugenio confessed that he does not regret what happened, because Aislinn has been his greatest teacher for all these years. “You have been my best teacher, Aislinn. And the most wonderful thing that has happened to me”, said Eugenio.

In addition, he confessed that the film No refunds (2013), starring and directed by Derbez, which tells the story of a single father who has to take care of a girl (Loreto Peralta), was a way to pay tribute to his daughter and this story in particular.
“It was kind of a tribute to Aislinn and I always felt guilty. I have never hidden this story from him, he grabbed me very young, I did not understand what paternity was and I was scared. He didn’t want to be a dad, but Aislinn became the best thing he didn’t want to happen”, he continued on this subject.
Later, she met her new partner, with whom she had her second son, Vhadir Derbez. During the meeting with Yordi Rosado, Derbez also recounted other passages in his life, such as his first date with Victoria Ruffo, where, due to his low economic solvency, he ran out of money to pay for dinner.
