Former fashion model and air hostess of the presidential Angolan aeroplane, Ana Paula dos Santos knew her husband during the time in which she was working on presidential flights. They married on 17 May 1991 and are parents of three children, Eduane Danilo dos Santos (born 29 September 1991), Joseana dos Santos (born 5 April 1995) and Eduardo Breno dos Santos (born 2 October 1998). Between 1990 and 1994, she completed a state teacher training at the National Institute of Education, Luanda. Later she completed a course of law at the Faculty of Law of the Agostinho Neto University.

A diplomat described the President and First Lady as: "a handsome couple, elegantly and expensively dressed, looking for all the world as though they're living in southern California." In 1997 Ana Paula undiplomatically announced that her five-year-old son would enroll at the Portuguese school in Luanda because of the "bad quality" of state education (for which many hold her husband responsible). She has also tried to make her presence felt in administrative matters; a move which has irritated the political mainstream. Also under fire are her business interests, particularly diamonds.
