WWE sensation Cody Rhodes is not just known for his in-ring prowess, but also for his long-standing relationship with Brandi Rhodes, his wife. In an intimate tweet from November 2012, Brandi gleefully announced their engagement, giving fans a glimpse of the dazzling ring.
By September 2013, as per Us Weekly, they sealed their love with marriage vows. Their love story, reminiscent of fairytales, saw its beginnings in St. Louis, Missouri. As they recollected in a 2014 vlog, one of their initial dates was at a Cracker Barrel.
The charming St. Louis Union Station Hotel's lobby played cupid, as it was there Cody, hosting a gala, extended an invite to Brandi. Their story didn't end there. Fans got a more intimate look into their life through their 2021 reality series, "Rhodes to the Top."
Parallel Professional Paths
Interestingly, their professional trajectories have mirrored each other's in many ways.
Brandi, before her wrestling avatar, was a figure skater for over a decade and a half. After a brief stint in journalism and dabbling in modeling and acting in Miami, the allure of the wrestling ring pulled her in. WWE signed her in 2011, and she wrestled for them till 2016.
Furthermore, Brandi's managerial acumen shone through when she became the chief brand officer of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), coinciding with Cody's tenure as its executive vice president. Although their association with AEW ceased in 2022, their professional journeys continued.
Brandi, in her continuous evolution, has now embarked on a new venture: Mind Yoga + Pilates, opening its doors in Fall 2023. Brandi's tryst with yoga began during the pandemic, and she shared in a Women's Health interview how the yoga community uplifted her spirits during tough times.
On the personal front, Cody and Brandi embarked on the joyous journey of parenthood. They welcomed their bundle of joy, Liberty Iris, in June 2021. Their Instagram feeds are adorned with heartwarming moments, with a memorable July 4th 2023 post featuring the trio in coordinating swimwear, exemplifying family goals.
Brandi's exploration of motherhood also extends to her podcast, "2 Lies and 1 Truth", a candid space where she interacts with celebrity parents. On the "Tamron Hall Show", she emphasized how the podcast has made her embrace the imperfections of motherhood.
