Published 11/15/2021, 1:29 AM EST

When one becomes a father to a daughter, their ultimate goal is to protect her from everything, regardless of what it is. Therefore, when Roman Reigns became a father to Joelle Anoa’i, he wanted to make sure she was well-protected from everything else, especially WWE Television and storylines.

However, WWE did use young Joelle during a storyline with former Superstars Bray Wyatt. It so happened that during WWE Raw: January 15th, 2015, Wyatt held up a photograph of Reigns and Joelle during a promo. He sang “I’m a Little Teapot” to mock Roman Reigns and indirectly threatened his daughter.

Even though he used the photograph after WWE and Reigns agreed to it, and it was a photograph which had aired before, The arrival Chief wasn’t crazy about the idea.

Roman Reigns and Galina Becker are extremely protective of their children

Rarely do Reigns’ children make an appearance on WWE. While there are photographs of Joelle Anoa’i, there aren’t any photographs of his other four easily available on the internet.

Currently, The Tribal Chief is a father to five children. His daughter was born in 2008, twin boys in 2016, and another set of twins in 2020. Neither Becker nor Reigns have uploaded photographs of their toddlers and infants on social media.

While Roman Reigns actively maintains a social media, primarily because of his profession, his wife, Galina Becker, doesn’t. She used to be extremely active on social media, but has stopped since giving birth to their daughter. As their family increased in size, Galina Becker put much focus on motherhood, and even quit her fitness modelling career.
