Speaking about her career and beginning a family with People magazine Becky said:
“I’ve always, always wanted kids. I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, ‘Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me?”
Becky and Seth, whose real name is Colby have pushed back their wedding date due to the pandemic. Speaking about the big day, Becky said that she’s excited for their little one to play a part in it.
“There’s no rush, and now we’ll have a little flower girl or a page boy.”
