You may be wondering what a date of birth has to do with being a bombshell, believe us when we say that you’ll soon get it. She was born Rebecca Sara “Becki” Newton on July 4, 1978, in New Haven, Connecticut. The first reason for the significance of this date should already be plain for all to see, the star was born on the anniversary of the day that the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, seeing as this groundbreaking event led to the formation of the United States of America.
In addition to that, Becki is a Gemini (in English, The Twins) and believe it or not this can tell us a whole lot about her. What we can decipher from this is that she is energetic, clever, imaginative, witty and adaptable. Unfortunately, this also means she could gravitate towards being superficial, impulsive, restless, devious and indecisive.Nevertheless, we love us some Becki Newton.

Then there’s her mother, Jennifer who is an award winning artist and her aunt, Stephanie Chase, who is a professional violinist.
Let’s not even look too far, we have her brother, Matt Newton, who also happens to be an actor; you may remember him from his recurring role as Marc St. James’ boyfriend Troy in the fourth and final season of Ugly Betty. So, by all indications, showbiz is the family business.
- The Star Is Happily Married
We have to start by apologizing to all the guys out there that were still nursing feelings for the star, seeing as someone has already swooped in and made an honest woman out of her. She is married to the actor, Chris Diamantopoulos, who happens to be a very fine Greek-Canadian man. You might have caught a few glimpse of him on shows like Charmed, Boston Legal and even Community.

She came out with a B.A. in European History from the University of Pennsylvania.
Prior to that, Becki began to perform musicals and plays at local theaters, that laid the foundation for her to get some work when she ventured out to New York after college. At first, she landed gigs like television commercials for companies such as the Olive Garden. She also appeared in a PSA video about the dangers of drinking for Human Relations Media, called “Keg Party.” In order to support herself till she got her feet off the ground, she waited tables.
