Combat sports, such as wrestling, martial arts, and ice hockey, are Giani’s favorites. England is his favorite country, and London is his loveable city.

Giani’s first wife, Vangie, is featured in Selena: The Series.

In 1988, at the age of 24, the author of “Como La Flor” married Vangie in Corpus Christi, Texas. Selena y Los Dinos, the Quintanilla family band, was still running strong at the time, and Selena was about to release her self-titled debut album with EMI Latin. According to Texas Monthly, the couple resided next door to A.B.’s parents.

Selena y Los Dinos guitarist (and subsequently, Selena’s husband) Chris Pérez recounted in his book To Selena, With Love, how he and Selena utilized A.B. and Vangie’s public connection to divert journalists (and presumably, Selena’s father, Abraham) from their romance.

“When media inquired if anyone was married or had a girlfriend, we all pointed to A.B., who had been married to his wife Vangie for a while by then and occasionally brought her on tour with him and his kids. The rest of us came up with cliched responses such as “Me?” This band is my girlfriend!”
