To win the Mrs Universe pageant, one has to be married, and preferably, to the right person. Some media sources are claiming the Colombian beauty who was recently crowned the winner in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don is married to a drug lord.
26-year-old Layla Martinez is a qualified lawyer and TV-host, and has been married for ten years. The brunette has a six-year-old daughter with her husband who allegedly goes by the nickname Pucho.

Rumor has it that it was Senor Martinez who prompted his wife to take part in the pageant held in Southern Russia.
In the city of Rostov-on-Don, the Hispanic stunner was also given a lesson in old Cossack traditions, drinking vodka from a sword one of them.

The Colombian bombshell managed to leave behind all the other married beauties, some of whom have several grandchildren.
Ladies from over thirty countries took part in the contest showing off their best in swimming suits and evening gowns.
Contestants from America and Kenya were placed second and third, while a ‘venus’ from Russia picked up the coveted Mrs Beauty title.
