Pujols married Deidre Pujols on January 1, 2000. They have five children: Isabella (Deidre’s daughter from a previous relationship), Albert Jr., Sophia, Ezra and Esther Grace.
After 22 years of marriage, Pujols filed for divorce on April 4, 2022, citing irreconcilable differences. Pujols is a devout evangelical Christian. He became an evangelical Christian on November 13, 1998, influenced in part by Deidre and his grandmother.
During his first tenure with the Cardinals, Pujols and his family attended West County Community Church, a Southern Baptist church in Wildwood, Missouri.
During the offseason, Pujols lives in St. Louis. He owned a home in Irvine, California, but put it up for sale in 2016. Pujols is a supporter of people with Down syndrome, a condition Isabella was born with.
In 2007, Pujols became a U.S. citizen, scoring a perfect 100 on his citizenship test.
Pujols is close friends with third baseman Plácido Polanco, a former teammate with the Cardinals. Polanco has called Pujols his “closest friend in baseball,” and Pujols is the godfather to Polanco’s son, Ishmael.
Pujols is also friends with Robinson Canó, who selected Mark Trumbo for the 2012 Home Run Derby after Pujols asked him to.
Albert Pujols was born on January 16, 1980, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, located on the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean region. He was the only child of his parents. His father was a softball pitcher, who later turned alcoholic.
Thus, he was brought up by his grandmother, uncles, and aunts.
As a child, he played baseball with the other children in the neighborhood, using an improvised kit. His family immigrated to the US in 1996 and started living in New York City. Later, they moved to Independence, Missouri, to live with their relatives.
He graduated from the ‘Fort Osage High School,’ Independence, in 1998. He played baseball for his school team and was named and ‘All-State’ athlete twice. He joined the ‘Maple Woods Community College’ on a baseball scholarship.
He played “shortstop” for his college team and batted .461, with 22 home runs, before making it to the ‘MLB’ draft.
There was immense controversy about his age, due to which no team was willing to recruit him initially. Thus, he began playing in minor league. In 2000, he played as “third base” for the ‘Peoria Chiefs’ in the ‘Midwest League.’
