There are those people who seem to have it all. Multitalented, and having a multifaceted career that is still growing and nothing short of iconic. They appear to have been born for the spotlight. This is the story of a twenty-three-year-old American singer, songwriter, spokesmodel, and actress Becky G who has had a really successful career.
Becky G, whose full name is Rebecca Marie Gomez, was born on March 2, 1997, in Inglewood, California, to Alejandra and Frank Gomez. She has two brothers and a younger sister (Frankie, Alex, and Stephanie). She is of Mexican descent. Her grandparents migrated from Mexico, and she’s part of her family’s second generation to be born in the United States.
Rebecca Gomez started her career as early as nine after convincing her parents to allow her to go for auditions, commercials, voiceovers, and modeling while she was homeschooled. She did this to contribute to her family’s income after losing their home and had to live in their grandparent’s converted garage.
Becky started writing her music at age 11, and at age 13, she could play the guitar. During this period, she made several cover videos and posted them on YouTube. Some of these include Novacane by Frank Ocean, Lighters by Bad Meets Evil, and ‘Otis’ by Kanye West. This caught the attention of producer Dr. Luke who signed her to his Kemosabe Records.
In 2013, her EP, Play It Again was released. Soon enough, she collaborated with big shots like Will.i.am and Pitbull (their ‘Can’t Get Enough’ was Number 1 on Billboard Latin Rhythmic Airplay chart). Cher Lloyd’s Oath and Cody Simpson’s Wish You Were Here have writing credits to Becky. She has toured with the likes of Katy Perry, J Balvin, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, and Fifth Harmony. Her notable songs include a debut single Becky From the Block in 2013 on which Jennifer Lopez made an appearance. Shower, released in the summer of 2014, became a hit as it charted in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Becky G didn’t leave her roots as she turned to make Spanish-language music. Some include Sola, Todo Cambio, Sin Pijama (alongside Natti Natasha), and the catchy Mayores, which features Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, which has over one billion views on YouTube.
In 2008, Becky landed her first acting role in a short film, El Tux. She also co-starred in a Discovery Channel drama film, La Estacion de la Calle Olvera as Nina. In 2015, she guest-starred on the Fox TV’s Emmy-winning Empire series as Valentina. While her big-screen debut was in the 2017 film version of the 1990’s superhero TV show Power Rangers as Trini, the yellow ranger. In 2017, Becky voiced a character in Gnome Alone, and in 2018, starred in the family adventure film A.X.L.
A current CoverGirl spokeswoman, she was honored recently by her home city for her contributions to the community, including her 2015 recording We Are Mexico, which she released in response to Donald Trump’s remarks against illegal Mexican immigrants. She is also one of Billboard’s 21 Under 21,” and recognized as part of the Rolling Stone’s 18 Teens Shaking Up Pop Culture.
In just a few years, her earning has skyrocketed. Becky G’s fortune is currently at about $4 million, acquired from her singing, acting career, endorsements, and other businesses, and she is still making more money.
Becky G and her boyfriend are in a serious relationship, even though she has a more low-key approach when it comes to her personal life. She’s with her long-time boyfriend and professional soccer player, Sebastian Lletget, nicknamed ‘Da Boy,’ who was born on September 3, 1992, in San Francisco, California. His parents are from Argentina and his grandfather from Italy, and as such, he holds dual citizenship.
The power couple met in 2016 when Becky G was introduced to Sebastian by her Power Rangers co-star Naomi Scott, whose husband Jordan Spence played soccer with Sebastian in London. The couple thought the match between the two would be great, even though at first Becky didn’t think anything of it seeing that she had ‘been there, done that’ with famous exes like Austin Mahone.
Sebastian started early, from being a youth player for Sporting Santa Clara in North California, he then joined West Ham United’s youth league (London, England) in 2009. After returning to the States in 2015, He played for the United States Men’s National Soccer Team as a midfielder. He has had quite an impressive performance and is credited with having fast feet.
In the same 2017, he was diagnosed with a midfoot injury during a game in which he scored the opening goal against Honduras. The injury, which he thought to be a simple strain, ended up being a Lisfranc injury, the type that requires surgery. Fortunately, he was able to return to the field in March 2018 after the treatment, as well as support from his partner. The couple has had time to bond during the quarantine period as their busy schedules have kept them apart for a while. Although they have no marriage plans yet, they are taking their time to enjoy every moment of their partnership.
