Barbara Becker (born November 1, 1966 as Barbara Feltus) is a German-American designer, actress and model.
Barbara Becker became famous when she began dating Boris Becker. Harlan took the picture of a nude Boris and Barbara for the cover of Stern. They married a month before their son, Noah, was born on 18 January 1994. Their second child, son Elias Balthasar, was born on 4 September 1999.
In late 1999, after being contacted by a woman claiming to be pregnant with Becker's child, Barbara took Noah and Elias to Miami, Florida, side-stepping her prenuptial agreement, and setting up an international custody battle. In his autobiography, Boris admitted that he had had a one-night stand with another woman that resulted in the birth of his daughter Anna, this while Barbara was pregnant with their second child. He wrote that the couple had a physical altercation when he flew to Florida to discuss the break-up of their marriage. The court hearings were broadcast live in Germany. A Munich court granted Becker a divorce in January 2001.
Becker and artist Arne Quinze announced their engagement on 6 January 2009. They married on 9 September 2009 at their home in Miami, Florida, and celebrated the wedding on 13 September 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Both events were photographed by Miami interior designer Sam Robin. Becker and Quinze divorced in 2011.
