Although you may have your own career, when you get married to the actor that plays one of the most popular characters in the history of modern pop culture, your identity is bound to be replaced by your relationship to him. That is what Sonni Pacheco, an actress, has come to learn as the ex-wife of Jeremy Renner, who famously plays Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Sonni Pacheco’s marriage to Jeremy Renner did not last for a year but it was more than enough for her to go from a fringe actress who has appeared in a couple of films to becoming a known name in mainstream media.

Her exact date of birth is unknown but she is believed to have been born in 1991. Along with the unknowns about Sonni is her academic history but after what we presume was the completion of her high school or possibly college education, she began her career as a model.
Sonni Pacheco started as a model in Canada and after a while, with her modeling career not developing as she envisioned, she sought out to explore other career options, relocating to Mexico. At Mexico, Sonni worked in a hotel resort and sold timeshares. Sonni soon realized after a few months in Mexico that she was passionate about modeling. Thus, she returned to her home country to give the profession another attempt. She got modeling jobs as a lingerie model and she also got a gig as the spokesperson for Monster Energy Drinks.

Relationship with Jeremy Renner
Being an actor, especially one as popular as Jeremy Renner often means there is little room for privacy, but having met Sonni Pacheco on the set of one of the Mission Impossible movies, Ghost Protocol, they developed an interest in each other and an eventual relationship that they managed to keep from the press.
They reportedly met in 2010 and began a relationship afterwards. About two years after they started dating, Sonni Pacheco gave birth to the couple’s child, a daughter named Ava in 2013. After they welcomed their first child, Sonni and Jeremy decided to become an official family in the eye of the law and got married in a secret ceremony on the 13th of January, 2014.
However, the marriage was not to be the happily ever after that was promised and just before they hit the one-year anniversary mark in their marriage, Pacheco filed for a divorce from the actor.
Contrary to what everyone hoped for when their divorce was announced, the divorce process became an ugly affair that saw accusations and strong differences between the couple.
