Roman Reigns is WWE’s Golden Boy. It wouldn’t be uncommon seeing him on charity events and other promotional work he does as a WWE wrestler. However, Reigns is a family man. His family comes first, then work. Galina Becker — Reigns’ wife — is the lady behind this man’s success. It’s cliche, but for a reason. While fans know a lot about The Big Dog, his personal and professional life; only a handful of them know about his wife more than that she’s… well…his wife.

In this very article, we present 10 interesting facts about Galina Becker that you should know.
1. Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida
Born on March 11, 1987, Galina Becker was raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She also has two older sisters, Molisa Cooper, and Undine Becker — with the latter being a sports athlete herself. Undine had a huge influence on Galina, as she used to be an inspiration for her sister.
2. A former athlete
Galina Becker completed her studies from Mt. Pleasant High School. However, she isn’t known for her grades, but that she was a great performer in hurdles and high jumping. She trained under Steve Nelson, who started as a school teacher at Mt. Pleasant.
3. Met Roman Reigns in college
Becker has a degree in management from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Interestingly, this is where Roman Reigns met his wife. Even when Becker was in college, she used to perform in track and field events often. They dated for a few years before getting engaged in 2012 and walking down the aisle two years later.
Even though The Big Dog does over 300 shows a year for WWE, he spends any free time he gets with his family.
“You have to know how to give and take…that’s the toughest part that I deal with now is just being there,” Reigns once said. “But we’re good about that.”
4. Mother of three kids
Joelle Anoa’i — the firstborn kid in Anoa’i family — was born on December 14, 2008. She’s the one close to Roman Reigns the most. Eight years after Joelle’s birth, Becker gave birth to twin boys in 2016. The fans didn’t know about this until Reigns revealed it in an interview with Corey Graves.
“It’s funny how people come up with, like, all these conclusions. Like, nobody knew what was going on with me. I’m not like (The) Miz where I announce it on every RAW. ‘He’s sick!’, ‘something happened!’, ‘he got in trouble!’, ‘oh no, he did it again!’ And then, no, like, I went home because I was having babies! We didn’t talk about it (in public); that was a year ago.”
5. A fitness model by profession
After graduating from Georgia Tech, Galina Becker started off as a fitness model. Perhaps, this is the reason how she has been able to keep her body fit as a fiddle despite being a mother of three kids.
Although, fitness modeling is no longer her prime focus since there’s a lot that goes into parenting. Taking care of kids is her priority.
6. Got married on a private island in The Bahamas
No, neither Roman Reigns nor Galina Becker owns a private island. They got married on Castaway Cay, which is owned by Disney. It’s in The Bahamas.
Their wedding took place on December 6, 2014.
7. “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin was their wedding song
It’s clear that both Reigns and Becker are huge Disney fans. Not only did they get married on an island possessed by Disney, but their main wedding song was also “A Whole New World” from Aladdin movie. And yes, they both danced for this song together too!
8. Galina isn’t active on Social Media
If you Google “Galina Becker” you will find anything but her official social media account. Becker isn’t active on Facebook, Instagram or even Twitter. Although, she had accounts on these platforms years ago. And she used to communicate daily to wrestlers and people online. But as of today, Becker doesn’t have a profile on these websites. Perhaps, she’s too busy parenting that she doesn’t even have time for online interaction.
9. Copes well with other WWE Superstars
While Galina Becker isn’t active on social media right now, there was a time when she used to retweet many tweets by the likes of Renee Young, Nia Jax and more on a regular basis. She was a well-known name within WWE — well, she’s Roman Reigns’ wife — and it seemed like she enjoys wrestling as much as his husband does. But we don’t know if she still follows WWE routinely.
10. Has appeared on several WWE events
Galina Becker and Roman Reigns have been spotted together several times during WWE events. Most notably, Hall of Fame ceremonies. We know that superstars bring their partner to this event, and Reigns does the same.
She has also attended several live events, but WWE never used Reigns’ family directly to build his rivalries — except in 2014 when he was feuding with Bray Wyatt. Probably, nobody would dare target Reigns’ family because that wouldn’t end up well for them.
