Who is Alina Golovkina?
Alina Golovkina was born in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, in the same country as her husband, Gennady Golovkin. She holds Kazakhstan nationality and belongs to the white ethnic group. Being the wife of a prominent personality comes with glitz/glamour and limelight, but Alina has refused to bask in the spotlight that comes with her status. She has chosen to live a simple and private life away from the scrutiny of the media and the public.
Due to her private nature, most details about her private life, including her date of birth, year of birth, as well as the identities of her parents, remain a mystery to the public.
According to several online publications, Alina Golovkina has previously worked as a model prior to her marriage to the Kazakhstan boxer. However, at the moment, there has not been any confirmation of her modeling career, but considering her gorgeous face and physique, it is quite likely that she was indeed a model.
Alina Golovkina Married Gennady Golovkin in 2007
Alina Golovkina and Gennady Golovkin’s marital relationship is the definition of a couple’s goal. The pair have been in a marital relationship for more than a decade now, which is a rarity amongst celebrity marriages. While most details about the romantic relationship of Alina Golovkina and Gennady Golovkin remain sketchy, it is known that the couple exchanged marriage vows on July 7, 2007, in a simple wedding ceremony attended by close friends and family.
The bride graced the occasion in a stunning white wedding dress and a long gorgeous veil, while the groom kept it classy in a black tuxedo. The couple’s wedding video titled ‘’GGG’s wedding Vlog’’ is available on YouTube. Following the wedding ceremony, the couple moved from Kazakhstan to Germany. In 2011, the couple relocated to the United States of America.
Since the pair tied the knot, they have kept their relationship private and away from the media. The Kazakhstani boxer has made it known in an interview with USA Today that his family and boxing business are two different aspects of his life that should not be mixed.
From his statement at the interview, Gennady does not wish to expose his private life to the shenanigans of the media and primarily wants to focus on his boxing career. This move on the couple’s part may have contributed to the lasting nature of their marital relationship in a world plagued with divorce and separation.
Moreover, the couple’s endless support for each other has made them a power couple in the boxing industry. Alina has consistently proven to be an indispensable asset in the life of the boxer, with her unquivering support and loyalty. With her continued support, the sky is definitely the limit for the Kazakhstani boxer.
Alina Golovkina Shares Two Children Triple G
Alina Golovkina and Gennady Golovkina are parents to two gorgeous children, a boy and a girl. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Vadim Golovkina, in 2010. According to reports, the Kazakhstani boxer named their first child after his late older brother, Vadim, who passed away while in military service back in 1990. Vadim Golovkina is currently attending basic school in California, where the family resides.
Seven years after the birth of their first child, the couple welcomed another bundle of joy in the form of a baby girl on September 9, 2017. Unfortunately, the couple has chosen to remain tight-lipped on the name of their daughter. Around the time Alina gave birth to their second child, her husband was at the peak of his career, bustling with determination and enthusiasm like no other.
According to online publications, just a few days prior to the boxing match between the Kazakhstani boxer and Mexican heavyweight champion, Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkina received a call informing him that his wife was about to put to bed, but unfortunately for the Kazakhstani boxer, he couldn’t witness the birth of his daughter because he was training for his match in Big Bear Lake, California.
Having relocated twice over the course of their marital relationship, it seems that the couple has finally settled down with the two children in Santa Monica, California.
Alina Golovkina Asked Her Husband to Retire from Boxing in 2016
Being married to a prominent personality such as Gennady Golovkina goes beyond fame and glamour; it requires some sacrifice as well. Due to the nature of Gennady Golovkina’s career as a professional boxer, he mostly spends time away from the family, either training or participating in a match. While his hustle is for the benefit of his family, it results in him missing out on some beautiful moments with his family, for instance, the birth of his daughter.
In the midst of all these limitations created by Gennady’s career, Alina has consistently provided her support by relocating from her hometown to Germany and then to the United States of America to support her husband. However, the pressure may have gotten to her at some point as she asked her husband to retire back in 2016, as she wanted to spend more time with him and the family.
Her husband’s retirement at that point in time would have halted his meteoric rise in the industry. The Kazakhstani boxer has recently revealed that he has no plan of retiring anytime soon, and we look forward to the next big appearance in the ring.
