The marriage had two children and only lasted about a decade and 2 years as they got divorced in the year 2000. He then met and married his second wife Heather Grein, an aspiring actress, in 2002. They got married on the 20th of April, had 2 sons, and after 2 years of marital bliss they called it quit as they got divorced in 2004 due to irreconcilable differences.

The Model and Her Ex A.B Quintanilla are both from Corpus Christi Texas
Information regarding how Rikkie and Quintanilla met is a bit obscure, however, it is clearly obvious that they met in 2009 shortly after Quintanilla’s divorce from Brenda Ramirez, his third wife. Coming from the same environment, hooking up wasn’t much of an issue for them. They dated for a period of two years and then got married on the 12th of November 2011.
They had a quiet wedding ceremony, having only close family members and closely knitted friends in attendance. The wedding took place in Corpus Christi Texas, which was home to both bride and groom.
The union faced little criticism from outsiders alleging that Rikkie was a gold digger and only married into the Quintanilla family just to get famous. The couple paid no attention to those allegations but instead continued to live happily after their union. They created a joint Youtube channel together where they hosted and invited fans to ask them 99 random questions.
Prior to his marriage to the model, A.B. Quintanilla had a total of eight children from his previous marriages. He and Rikkie Leigh had high hopes of having children together as husband and wife. A.B. Quintanilla for one seems to be a lover of children as his past relationships have all highlighted that quality of his.
Why Did Rikkie Leigh and A.B Quintanilla Get Divorced?
Rikkie Leigh may have enjoyed the height of fame from her marriage with A.B. Quintanilla, however the same could not be said of her marriage to him. The union which was supposed to be a ‘happily ever after’ survived only half a decade before both went their separate ways. No prior reports were given as to the cause of the break-up. If there were cases of scandal, domestic violence, or infidelity, they both did well to keep it away from the public.
They had no children together, even though they both have shared on their joint youtube channel how lovely it would be for them to have children. That hope never came to reality as the years that followed saw them parting ways before they had a chance of summating their union.
We could also assume that the lack of children could be a probable factor in their separation, however, that won’t be logical as his past marriages have seeds and still went awry. On the 5th of July, 2016, the model’s ex-husband, A.B. Quintanilla, publicly announced the dissolution of their five years marriage with a divorce in process, which was finalized before the end of the year that followed.
Before the eyes of the public, the divorce process was smooth and peaceful with fewer angles to worry about like child support and welfare as the union had no offspring to consider. However, Rikkie Leigh had a contrary opinion to that fact when she publicly stated that the period of the divorce and the whole process were unpleasant for her, describing it as one of her worst life experiences.

Shortly after the divorce from A.B. Quintanilla, the model got into a relationship that was toxic to her wellbeing.
