Likewise, Roman stands at the height of 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 meters) and weighs around 58 kg (128 pounds).

With that being said, the celebrity wife has a toned body that looks petite next to her muscular husband.

Roman dons her long, light brown hair and black eyes with her fair skin. No wonder Corbin fell for her charms.

Early Life & Education

Unlike other celebrities, Roman is not exactly ecstatic about being in the media, surrounded by cameras and paparazzi. Hence, despite being a familiar name among WWE fans, she is somewhat of a mystery.

Rochelle was born to her parents, Carlos Roman and Ivonne Roman, in Puerto Rico. In an interview with the Insider, Baron revealed his wife’s home country.

There is no available information about her parents besides their names. We were unable to get our hands on information about her siblings, whether she grew up with one or not.

As for her education, there is no mention of her academics and university. But sources claim that she is a licensed registered nurse in Florida.

Meet The Wife of Baron Corbin

Now, talking about her marriage, it is no secret that Rochelle is married to WWE star Baron Corbin.

Their relationship was the reason why Roman achieved her fame. However, the two kept their relationship low-key, and only a few people knew about their relationship.

Hence, not much is known about it. For starters, the exact time and date they started dating is still a matter of discussion to many.

However, it seems the two kindled their romance way before, probably when Corbin was still an NFL player. Many assume they met during Corbin’s treatment, followed by his injuries.

After dating for a few years, the two decided to take their relationship to the next level.

The lovebirds shared their vows in a private wedding ceremony in the presence of their close ones in Clearwater, Florida, on April 29, 2017.

Moreover, adding to their happiness, they welcomed their first child, a daughter, Ryane Pestock, in 2019. 

The Pestock family welcomed another daughter, whose name and date of birth are yet to be known. But looking at Thomas’ Instagram, we can assume that she was born somewhere in the year 2022.

Amazingly, people could not help but notice Corbin shedding his tough exterior when seen together with his daughters.

Baron Corbin Dated Others Before Rochelle Roman

Dating is entirely reasonable when it comes to people of a certain age. And since Corbin used to play for NFL, he must have gotten plenty of attention.

Before he met the love of his life, Corbin used to date singer Maria Brink. The star is an American singer and songwriter, famous as the frontwoman of the American heavy metal band, In This Moment. 

Similarly, Maria was awarded the “Rock Goddess of the Year” back in 2013 and 2015.

Despite being seven years older than Baron, the two dated for a while. Sadly, their relationship came to an end due to some differences.

In August 2012, Baron signed with WWE’s developmental system NXT and officially started his professional career as a wrestler.

Corbin made his debut on October 18 at a house show attended by his then-girlfriend.

During his time with the NXT, Baron won many awards and titles despite being a villainous character most of the time.

Baron even won the 2017 Money in the Bank men’s ladder match, receiving praise and criticism for his work in the Raw.

Be it his successful or unsuccessful attempts, Baron sure has become a famous name in the WWE.

Baron changed his stage name to King Corbin and was drafted to the SmackDown brand in 2019.
