The notion that Galina Becker only became popular after her marriage to professional wrestler Roman Reigns is untrue because Becker had worked as a fitness model for a very long time and made a name for herself before her marriage to the WWE star. Her marriage to Reigns only boosted her popularity status and did not create it, but whichever way, everyone knows her now.
Here is all you need to know about the fitness model; her life before the fame, her marriage to the wrestling star, and other lesser-known facts.

Galina Joelle Becker was born in Jacksonville Florida on the 11th day of March 1987 to Kevin and Mildred Becker. She was raised in San Francisco alongside her two older siblings (Molisa Cooper and Undine Becker). Her parents are Afro-Americans thus, she is of Afro-American ethnicity.
She attended Mt. Pleasant High School, where she was known as one of the best athletes in her class, she was into tracks and field events. Galina wasn’t just the best at hurdles and jump, she equally made significant strides as a field athlete, winning several competitions both as a freshman in subsequent years.
Beckers won several regional titles in the triple jump and was even named the Most Valuable Performer in her school team for three years in a row. Her older sister Undine was also an athlete who represented the University of Stanford in track and field events for up to five years.

During a 100 meters high hurdle, she made the best time of 14.92, and would later record a season-best time of 12.76 in a 100-meter dash.
