Fernando Colunga, a Mexican TV actor best known for his roles in telenovelas, is a gorgeous and lovely man. His endearing nature, well-groomed demeanor, and welcoming figure have earned him a slew of fans throughout the years.
Colunga, like every other allegedly single actor, has been the subject of rumors regarding his possible marriage and sexuality. One such rumor is that he is dating [and perhaps married to] actress Blanca Soto. This one appears to be close to the truth, as it has been claimed by various sources throughout the years.
Relationship and Gay Rumors Haunt Colunga
Colunga is still one of the most sought-after single men on Mexican television at the age of 55, which has sparked a slew of speculations throughout his career. Edith Gonzalez, Bright Star, Thalia, Susana Gonzalez, Adela Noriega, Silvia Navarro, Gaby Spanic, Aracely Arambula, and Blanca Soto are among the women he has been linked to.
Although the list assumes he is straight, others have speculated that Colunga is gay. Colunga was probed about his sexual orientation by a journalist named Adolfo in 1995.
Has someone ever directly asked you about your sexual orientation?
“Yes, no one has asked me personally,” the actor responded. He went on to say, “Is it true that I am homosexual or not gay if someone questions me directly? I will undoubtedly respond. I’d say yes if I were gay. If not, I will decline.”
Colunga played it cautious there, but the actor’s gay allegations have persisted to this day.

Blanca Soto is said to be his wife
Colunga’s relationship with actress Blanca Soto has been a long-running rumor. Their relationship rumors began after they starred in the Mexican soap drama Porque el amor Amanda. Carmen Salinas, a well-known actress, even confirmed that they are a couple in real life. The stories have persisted for years, giving them far more credence than those linking him to other women.
Following Carmen Salinas’ assertion that Soto and Colunga are a couple, Maxine Woodside, a journalist, alleged that they are even living together in Miami and that their relationship has been going on for quite some time.
“…They [Colunga and Soto] make a lovely couple, and their relationship has lasted many years…”
The suspicions intensified when the two were seen kissing in public after starring together in Porque El Amor Manda in 2016. Colunga and Soto have been married since 2019, according to both of their IMDb profiles. Neither of them, however, has confirmed the marriage. Despite this, People magazine stated in January 2020 that the actor was single, indicating why he has yet to start a family.

Colunga claimed that he has very high morals when it comes to marriage in an interview with the program Un Nuevo Da, according to the article. He also indicated in the interview that he wanted to get married and start a family, but that he didn’t want to rush it. “Many years ago, I pictured myself as a father,” he remarked.
“What happens is that life goes straight for a while, then it tells you to turn right, then left, and things change, but I still have time,” the actor explained.
Who knows, maybe he’s simply waiting for the right one, or maybe he’s already found it!
