It cannot be denied that the Instagram social media platform has produced thousands of stars who usually step into the limelight by doing things that in a special way seem quite normal. In addition, most of the social media celebrities we know today became very popular by taking advantage of the fame of already known stars, and this is the category in which Lauren Wood could be rated. She is an Instagram star who has also appeared on television for one or two appearances and is known for her good looks.
However, her beauty and talent are not the only factors that have contributed to the fame she now enjoys as a star. At the age of 21, in 2014, Lauren made the headlines because she was dating former American professional boxer Floyd Mayweather, now a popular boxing promoter. Let’s dive into the relationship between the two and what happened during their yacht adventure, but first a quick look at who Lauren Wood really is.
Lauren Wood Bio
The American Instagram sensation was born on March 13, 1993, which makes Pisces her star sign. Her birthplace is Texas, United States. Little or nothing is known about the family and early life of this social media personality, but it is known that she has a younger sister. There is also no information about her educational background including the institutions she attended.
While her life so far has not been very much in the spotlight, her achievements in social media have been remarkable. With her Instagram account, she has gained a huge fan base that boasts over 860,000 followers amidst her flashy lifestyle on the platform.
Apart from being a social media model, Lauren Wood is also known for other ventures in the showbiz industry. She appeared in the MTV improv comedy Wild ‘N Out. The series debuted on July 28, 2005, and she appeared in the show’s sixth and seventh seasons, receiving rave reviews. By 2015, fans were already rallying around her to support her, and as a result, she was voted a fan favorite on the show. Lauren appears alongside the dancer, fitness personality, and model Rosa Acosta in the American comedy series.
Family Facts and Relationship With Floyd Mayweather
So far, the Instagram beauty has not been very generous with details about her family and background. Not much is known about her parents and siblings, although she has mentioned that she has a younger sister, whose identity has not yet been confirmed.
As for her relationship timeline, the Instagram model, at least to the best of our knowledge, has not played a role in many romantic affairs. However, it is known that she dated NBA player Eric Moreland. Eric, who, like Lauren, was born in Texas, is a professional power forwarder/center in the NBA just like Lauren. He signed a contract with the Sacramento Kings as an unclaimed free agent during the 2014 NBA draft. There is no information on when or how the two met or how far their relationship developed. Regardless, the Instagram model dominated the headlines at some point in June 2014, when she was captured on camera living the luxury yacht life with famous boxer Floyd Mayweather.
For what it’s worth, it’s impossible to say what the relationship between the two of them was like, but they seemed to feel comfortable in each other’s company. Mayweather is no stranger to enjoying life to the fullest and making most men green with envy. When the photos of him and the social media sensation that hung on his yacht appeared, it was no big surprise. After their date on the yacht, both Lauren and the boxing champion went into social media to share the photos of the boxing star hanging with the beautiful model and the Wild ‘N Out star. As expected, the pictures met with mixed reactions from fans. While some were happy about the couple’s life, others exclaimed Mayweather for many reasons, most of which bordered on race. Also, Mayweather was not a great keeper when it came to relationships. He had a reputation for dating many women to whom he was engaged but never got as far as getting engaged to one.
However, he has four children and seems to be content with his bachelor life. After all, he once made it clear that the only woman he needs in his life is his mother.
