Dulce María is a Mexican singer, songwriter, actress, and author. She was a member of pop group RBD.

Dulce is the daughter of Fernando Espinosa Ávila and Blanca Guadalupe Saviñón Henderson. Dulce is married to producer Paco Álvarez.

Dulce is a first cousin, twice removed, of painter Frida Kahlo. Dulce’s maternal great-great-grandparents, Antonio Calderón Sandoval and Isabel Adela González Garduño, were also Frida’s maternal grandparents.

Dulce’s paternal grandfather was Salvador Espinosa López (the son of Ezequiel Espinosa Rueda and Natalia López Chávez). Salvador was born in Huetamo, Michoacán. Ezequiel was the son of Rosendo Espinosa and Celsa Rueda. Natalia was the daughter of Epifanio López and Candelaria Chávez.

Dulce’s paternal grandmother was María Ávila Villanueva (the daughter of Teófilo Ávila Peñaloza and Virginia Villanueva Gómez). María was born in Huetamo, Michoacán. Teófilo was the son of Modesto Ávila Santa María and María Eufracia Peñaloza López. Virginia was the daughter of Severiano Villanueva Soria and María Pastor Gómez Maldonado.

Dulce’s maternal grandfather was Jorge Rubén Saviñón Tonti (the son of Adalberto Antonio Ramón Saviñón Hermosillo and Eva Theodora Philomena Tonti). Jorge was born in Madrid, Spain. Adalberto was the son of Adalberto Pioquinto Crescencio Agustín Antonio de Padua de Jesús María y José Saviñón Peñarroja and María Dolores Elena Francisca de Paula Magdalena Ignacia Felipa de Jesús Trinidad Gutiérrez de Hermosillo y Veraza. Dulce’s great-grandmother Eva was born in Frederiksberg, Denmark, the daughter of Giuseppe Alfredo Tonti, of Naples, Italy, and of Ingeborg Sophie Helen Høybye.

Dulce’s maternal grandmother was Blanca Isabel Henderson Calderón (the daughter of Juan Henderson Hunt and Guadalupe de la Luz Calderón González). Dulce’s grandmother Blanca was born in Mexico City. Juan was the son of a Scottish emigrant, John Henderson, of Dollar, Clackmannanshire, and of an English emigrant, Agnes Margaret Hunt, of Liverpool, who likely was of Irish origin. Dulce’s great-grandmother Guadalupe was the daughter of Antonio Calderón Sandoval and Isabel Adela González Garduño, and was the maternal aunt of Frida Kahlo.

Dulce’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced to her third great-grandmother, Gregoria Garduño (c. 1825, San Felipe del Progreso, State of Mexico – October 16, 1852, Mexico City).

      Correction: Frederiksberg, not Copenhagen

    • bablah says:

      Wouldn’t this make Frida Kahlo her first cousin twice removed?

    • Manila says:

      The younger Adalberto’s middle names are Antonio Ramón. Also, correct the older Adalberto’s full name to Adalberto Pioquinto Crescencio Agustín Antonio de Padua de Jesús María y José Saviñón Peñarroja. Elena’s full name is María Dolores Elena Francisca de Paula Magdalena Ignacia Felipa de Jesús Trinidad Gutiérrez de Hermosillo y Veraza.

      Include Basque as part of her Mexican ancestry. Also, include Andalusian, Cantabrian, and Castilian as parts of her Spanish ancestry.

    • Manila says:

      Include Aragonese as part of her Spanish ancestry, and distant African and Galician as parts of her Mexican ancestry. Other ancestry includes remote Portuguese. Also, her Italian ancestry is more than 1/16 because of her distant Italian ancestry aside from the Tonti side. Tag Ligurian and Neapolitan as well.

      Agnes’ ethnicity could have been Irish rather than English because her mother’s maiden surname is Murphy, which is definitely of Irish origin. Also, Liverpudlians in the 19th century were predominantly of Irish descent. The Hunts could have also been originated from Ireland too.

      Dulce’s great-grandmother Guadalupe’s middle name is de la Luz. Isabel’s middle name is Adela.

      Dulce’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her third great-grandmother, Gregoria Garduño (c. 1825, San Felipe del Progreso, State of Mexico – October 16, 1852, Mexico City.
