Being the daughter of a renowned journalist and television personality, one can be forgiven for expecting a similar career path for Alexa Dellanos.

Considering Instagram modeling is a growing industry, it remains to be seen what can be made of it as a long-term plan but for now, Alexa Dellanos has chosen it as a career option and it has so far paid off. She has been able to gain massive followership across Instagram and Youtube, both of which are massive financial revenue outlets. We discuss the life of Alexa Dellanos more extensively below. Scroll down to read more.
How Alexa Dellanos Survived A Turbulent Childhood
Unlike most Instagram models and stars who are random people that have leveraged on the platform to build a name for themselves, Alexa Dellanos had a name before she became an Instagram star, and as a result, there is a more detailed understanding of her background. Dellanos was born on the 30th of December 1993 in Miami, Florida and her given name at birth was Alexa Carolina Loynaz. Her mother is a renowned Cuban journalist and television host named Myrka Dellanos while her father is a medical doctor named Alejandro Loynaz. She is the only child between her parents.
The birth of a new child usually serves to bring a couple together. This was, however, not the situation in Alexa’s case as her parents’ divorced when she was about four years old with her surname changed back to her mother’s. The divorce paved the way for Alexa’s mother to date a man named Ulyses Daniel Alonso. This romance also turned out to be bad news as Ulyses was physically abusive and was later arrested for domestic battery charges. The revolving door of male figures in Alexa Dellanos’ life did not end with Ulyses and it took its toll on her. Regardless, she managed to have a normal life and completed her high school diploma.
Becoming Instafamous Is No Easy Feat
While growing up, Alexa Dellanos originally aspired to become a broadcast journalist just like her mother. She tailored her studies towards that direction. She also interned at some local TV stations in Miami, working as a reporter. All these, however, changed when the Miami native joined Instagram and started posting sexy pictures of herself. She populated her feed with photos of herself spotting skimpy lingerie, hot bikinis, sexy dinner dresses, and butt-hugging jeans. These posts gained her thousands of admirers and increased her followership exponentially. Several brands also paid her to advertise their product and before long, Dellanos realized that she was making a decent income from Instagram.
The Miami native also surmised that she would make thrice her earnings as a journalist if she were to take her Instagram career seriously. She, therefore, quit journalism in early 2018 and turned her sole attention on Instagram modeling. This bold decision has certainly paid off as Alexa Dellanos is now a bonafide social media influencer. She has around 1.8 million followers on Instagram and is also spreading her influence across YouTube and Twitter. It has, however, not been all smooth-sailing for Dellanos as she has had to cope with online trolling, hate messages, unsolicited ‘d*ck pics’ as well as stalkerish fans. She has, however, remained unwavering and is determined to share positive energy to everyone she meets.
The Earnings From Her Instagram Career

She is quite picky about the brands that she works with and only endorses those that she herself can use.

In a 2019 interview with Sun UK, Alexa Dellanos revealed that she charges about $6000 per Instagram post and makes as much as $63,000 from the platform each year. This is certainly not shabby for a lady that is still in her mid-20s.
