Wife

Yermin Mercedes married a woman called Alejandra in the year 2020, according to several accounts. However, in February 2021, tele universo, a news portal, published an article claiming that the pair had already split up. This news emerged when Mercedes erased all of Alejandra’s photos from his Instagram account.

The claimed ex-girlfriend of the baseball catcher did the same thing. Alejandra is said to be of Venezuelan descent. Prior to the deletion of the photos, the couple was frequently spotted posting pictures of themselves on social media.

On the other hand, according to an Instagram account called alejandrapg2oficial, the entire split rumor about Mercedes and Alejandra appears to be bogus. As a result, this profile plainly demonstrates that things are going well for the couple and that they are very much together.

Alejandrapg2oficial was reported on February 14, 2021, tweeting a photo of Alejandra and Mercedes in which she is wishing him a happy birthday with the message, “Happy Birthday to my partner in crime.”
