• Roman Reigns Reveals That His Wife Is Expecting Twins, Going To Become A Father Of 5
During an interview with Muscle & Fitness, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns revealed that his wife, Galina Becker, is pregnant with twins and he’s soon going to become a father of 5 children.
Below is what Reigns said:
“Three [kids], with two in the oven. I’m looking to be Papa Bear Five. Breaking news, we haven’t shared that.”

With The Miz arriving sick at the WWE Performance Center at WrestleMania 36 tapings, a WWE employee testing positive for COVID-19, and his wife being pregnant, Reigns (whose immune system is weak due to his battle with leukemia in the past) certainly made the right choice by pulling out of WrestleMania 36.
