The family of the late Mexican superstar Selena have come together to discuss her murder a decade ago. The family of "The Queen of Tejano music" revealed that she may have been pregnant at the time she was murdered by the former president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar in March 1995. The family came forward to with the revelations in light of the 10th anniversary of her murder. 

The Spanish-language magazine 'Latina' brought the Quintanilla family together to mourn their loss, where they announced plans to host anniversary events. Selena's father, Abraham, explained in the interview that Saldivar had attempted to kill his daughter four times before she actually murdered her. He went on to explain that Selena was planning to start a family at the time of her death.

According to Abraham, his daughter had spoken to the family the day before her murder, explaining that she and her husband, Chris Perez, were planning to start and family and had an appointment with a doctor to remove a contraceptive device removed from her. Perez himself contributed to the interview by explaining how he was able to cope with the death of his wife. 

Perez explained his coping techniques, saying: "I used to sleep with pictures of her, just snapshots of her without make-up, dusting - how I saw her. I used to carry a book of pictures around with me, just stacks of her. I'd go to a friend's house, and there'd be people mingling, and I'd be this dude in the corner somewhere with my pictures... This is 10 years later and I'm doing the best I can."

Hello my name is Ashley Butcher, and I'm 13 years of age. When i found out that Selena was shot in the back, I was SHOCKED!! How could someone that she loved jus do thos kind of things. I didn't expect it coming! I thought that Yolanda was her friend not an enemy!! Well I hope she rotes in HELL!! Cause if someone did that to me and made me suffer a tragic death! I would want the same thing happening to them!! Well don't forget Selena your in GODS hands now and no-one can not hurt you anymore!! Selena your the best and no-one can't take that away from you, not even that B*T*H Yolanda!! For ever and ever, Ashley

I have seen the movie so many times, I cannot even count them. I first saw the movie when it came out in the theaters. I was touched and in tears, and everytime I watch it, the same feelings come over me. Selena was a remarkable woman, she was beautiful and oh so talented. And for this crazy woman Yolanda to take all of this away from the world is unforgivable. There are not many people in this world as sweet and caring as Selena was. She made everyone around her feel so loved and happy. This was such a tragedy, I wish we could turn back the hands of time sometimes, so this kind of tragedy would not happen to the angels left in this world. I cry often when I hear her music, and she will always be loved and remembered by all of us.. God bless her family, and her husband Chris. My son died 15 years ago, and I know that he is in heaven with Selena now, and she will be singing all those beautiful songs to the angels in heaven..We miss and love you dearly Selena!

10 years ago... I remember when I was in 3rd grade watching the news and my sister was crying. I asked her what was wrong? she said " Look! someone so beautiful on TV died" When I was saw, It was Selena. Since then my heart dropped. I couldnt understand how someone who touched so many hearts. Not only an angel on earth, she became an angel in heaven so soon. When I was growing up into a teenager, Somehow I kept her memory alive. I would put her cd in and play it loud. Even show my friends who never even heard of her. Her music touched so many hearts. I just cant believe who can even think about taking her life away from her family, her husband and her fans? The constant pain they drown in because of a useless bullet that yolanda pulled. Its hard just imagine what they gone through. My heart goes out to the family and Chris to this day.
