Growing up in Germany, she studied acting and dance. Her early career included both modeling and television roles. In autumn 1991, Barbara Feltus met international tennis star Boris Becker. They married in 1993. They have two sons, Noah and Elias. In 2001 their marriage ended in divorce.
Beginning in 2006, Barbara Becker was a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for a tetanus prevention program in developing countries. Between 2006 and 2009, more than 300 million doses of the vaccine were donated.
Barbara Becker and artist Arne Quinze announced their engagement on January 6, 2009. They married on September 9, 2009 at their home in Miami, Florida and celebrated the wedding on September 13, 2009 in Berlin. Both events were photographed by Sam Robin.

Barbara and Becker’s marriage lasted only seven years. The reason is that the tennis pro didn’t seem to take loyalty very seriously. The dispute over custody of their children then ended in a lawsuit that was televised live. Barbara remarried in September 2009. However, the marriage with the Belgian artist Arne Quinze lasted only two years. Meanwhile, the dark-haired beauty has been dating 18-year-old Junior Juan Lopez Salaberry since 2016.
Barbara Becker and Juan met after the show at a party at a fundraiser in Miami. On the dance floor there they were flirting – they lit up instantly! Since Barbara’s sons moved, the entrepreneur has been living with her boyfriend in her Miami home. When not spending time with her loved one, she creates her own fashion and from time to time she can be seen on TV.
The divorce from Barbara Becker and Boris Becker is said to have brought her 15 million euros. The divorce money could have made up a significant part of the assets after the divorce. Barbara Becker’s existence has long been independent of the former tennis player. Your finances are in order and your assets are dry. Also, she has created a comfortable home with her home in Miami.
Barbara Becker is not only a successful business woman, but also the mother of Elias Baltasar, a model for Dolce and Gabbana on the catwalk, and Noah Gabriel, a musician and designer. She left two spouses and now lives in Miami with her youngest boyfriend, although they don’t live under the same roof. She repeatedly reports in interviews that they have a harmonious relationship.
Barbara’s mother Ursula Feltus is rather shy and rarely seen with her famous daughter. But the relationship seems to be very good – Barbara Becker at least presented it to her Instagram followers. Barbare’s sister, Hannah Feltus – is two years older. She has been running a shop in Stuttgart for years and lives in a completely different world.
