Francisco Lindor's biggest supporter on and off the field is his wife, Katia Reguero.

The New York Mets shortstop married Reguero in December 2021 after welcoming a daughter together a year earlier. In June 2023, their second daughter, Amapola Chloé, was born.

Though they've already experienced several major life milestones together, Lindor admitted to Haute Living in March 2023 that he's still "learning her ways" when it comes to his wife, and even took a test to better understand his "love language."

"I ask questions. I try to understand, and my wife has taught me to listen to her," he told the outlet. "With Katia, I have learned to try to communicate a little better."

"Actually, she says that men close their frontal lobes after 28 or 29 years old. And now that I'm 29, I guess I'm fully developed," he joked.

So who is Francisco Lindor's wife? Here's everything to know about Katia Reguero and her relationship with the baseball player.

She connected with Lindor via Instagram

A photo Reguero posted caught Lindor's eye on Instagram, and the rest is history, he explained to the New York Post in April 2022. "I messaged her on Instagram," he said. "Her picture popped up and I was like, 'This girl is beautiful!' "

"We talked for three months and then I met her in Arizona 'cause I was out there for spring training," he added. "We just hung out and I was like, 'I think she's the one.' At first, I was a little bit like, 'Ahh, I don't want to really commit,' but I knew that she was the one."

She and Lindor have two daughters together

On Nov. 4, 2020, the couple welcomed their daughter, Kalina Zoé. The toddler is often seen supporting her dad at his games and is also a big fan of Buck Showalter, the Mets manager.

After his team defeated the San Diego Padres in Game 2 of the National League Wild Card series in October 2022, Lindor sat down for a press conference, with his daughter joining him as a special guest. However, she wasn't as interested in hearing her dad's responses as she was in locating Showalter.

"Papa, Buck!" she said to Lindor, pointing off-camera.

"Yeah, Buck left," he told the toddler, telling reporters, "She loves Buck."

In January 2023, Lindor and Reguero announced they were expecting their second child together. They shared a joint post on their Instagram accounts with the baby news, writing, "Celebrating love & baby número dos coming June 2023 🥰 #soontobefamilyof4."

Five months later, their second daughter, Amapola Chloé, was born on June 17, 2023. A few days later, Reguero shared a video montage on Instagram of her home birth experience and photos of Kalina with her new baby sister.

"My 2nd home birth. I prayed for this birth team + the timing of Amapola’s birth, and God answered my prayers," she wrote in the caption. "Couldn’t have done it without the best support system. Special thanks to my midwives & to my hubby @lindor12bc who stayed by my side every second of my labor. I am blessed!"

Lindor and Reguero tied the knot on Dec. 16, 2021, at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida. The couple exchanged personal vows during their first look, and had their daughter walk down the aisle with Lindor.

Reguero had her heart set on the tropical location, which was entirely booked during the Mets off-season from November until February, "except for the one day in December," the bride told Martha Stewart Weddings, "so that was essentially chosen for us."

The newlyweds enjoyed their first dance to Andrea Bocelli's version of "Can't Help Falling in Love," which Reguero had a special connection to.

She explained to the outlet, "I grew up listening to Andrea Bocelli and always loved this song. I shared it with Francisco some time after we started dating, and it was the first song that came to mind when it came time to choose something for our first dance."

She is a podcast host

Reguero launched her podcast, The Un-a-Parent, in August 2022, which, per its Instagram, shares "the unapparent truths of parenting." Guests have included her husband, former Miss Universe Puerto Rico Mariana Vicente, mental health professionals and more, with interviews conducted in both English and Spanish.

"I'm doing this podcast as much for myself as for others," she shared in her first episode. "I needed a creative, intellectual, stimulating outlet, and it stemmed from a desire to start conversations that I felt I might have needed back when I was pregnant and becoming a parent, and the first few months that were just so overwhelming."

She added, "And it didn't seem like there was enough authentic conversation surrounding what parenthood is actually like."

She is supportive of Lindor

Reguero is frequently seen cheering on Lindor at his games. She documents their life on and off the baseball field on social media, even in hard times.

A brawl immediately erupted on the field when the shortstop was hit in the face by a pitch during the fifth inning of a game against the Washington Nationals in April 2022. Thankfully, Lindor passed his concussion test and had clear X-ray scans, but did crack a tooth from the pitch.

"Strongest person I know, both mentally and physically," she wrote on Instagram after the close call.

She and Lindor continue to grow together

Learning the right ways to give and receive love from each other has been integral to the couple's relationship, says Lindor. In an interview with Haute Living, the baseball star opened up about communicating with his wife and what they've learned from each other over the years.

"Just sitting on the couch with my wife is quality time," Lindor said.

"We can be right next to each other, watching a dumbass show, and that's quality time," he added. "Her quality time looks different, but I have learned to be able to communicate and say, 'Hey, I need, I need some time, some quiet time, all to myself.' And she understands."

He added that the two continue to grow every day in their relationship.

"From what I've seen, I've learned that we definitely need to put work into growing together, because if we start to grow in different ways, that's a problem," Lindor said.
