Wrestling is a form of entertainment that cuts across the globe and its biggest purveyor is the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The organization has a lot of performers on its roster, one of those is Jeff Hardy, a multi-talented performer who in addition to being a well-known professional wrestler, is also a painter and a musician. He has won several championships, many of which he won alongside his brother, Matt Hardy. Jeff has been able to build a successful career as a wrestler and as such, his personal life has been a focus in the media, such as that of his wife Beth Britt whom he got married to in 2011.
Who Is Beth Britt?
True wrestling fans and hardcore supporters of the sport are more than likely to know the identity of Beth Britt. It is the natural result of being the wife of one of the most popular faces in wrestling. She has been a part of the life of the wrestler since 1999 and she is credited for helping him navigate some of the toughest periods of his career, including a period where he was embroiled in a drug controversy.
Beth Britt, who very little is known of her background, was born on the 6th of April, 1978. Very little was known of Beth Britt until she met Jeff Hardy in 1999, in a North Carolina bar. Since that meeting and her subsequent exposure to the media, not much has been learned about Beth Britt outside of her relationship with Jeff. So far, we only know she is one of two children born to her parents. She has a brother named Phillip Britt.
What She Does for a Living
With nothing known of her education, Beth Britt is only so far known as the supportive wife of the popular wrestler. The quest to know what she does for a living has failed to yield any meaningful results. This has made people conclude she has devoted all her time to being a housewife and supporting her husband’s career.
Jeff once offered that Beth has been very instrumental in helping him deal with the mental and physical grind of his career. According to him, his career can be overwhelming at times because he’s always striving to be on top of the game. Beth encouraged him to start doing yoga with her and it has been helping him deal with the stress.
Jeff Hardy is known for some of his quirky traits and this is also a trait Beth Britt shares. She is a known believer in the existence of paranormal activities and enjoys spending time at museums, monuments, and haunted houses which are known to have a dark history.
Beth and Jeff Met in a Bar in 1999 and Dated for 12 Years
Having met Jeff in a bar in Southern Pines, North Carolina, in 1999, the two have been together ever since. Although the road that led to the two making their relationship official has been kept away from the media, the couple clearly had a strong attraction to each other after their initial meeting.
They went on to date each other for 12 years before they went in front of the altar and became a married couple in 2011. Even as the length of their relationship paints a beautiful picture, it has had its share of struggles. Especially from Jeff Hardy, who for a long time throughout the 2000s was embroiled in substance abuse which led to suspensions from the WWE.
It was a difficult time that saw him spend time in jail for drug trafficking. Fortunately, with the help of Beth Britt and a stint in rehab, Jeff Hardy was able to return to wrestling and do what he does best.
The Couple Got Married on the 9th of March 2011
Being an influential part of Jeff Hardy’s life, their relationship was much welcomed by fans of the sport, with several fans, family, and friends subsequently pressuring that they both get married. After twelve years of being together, Beth Britt and Jeff Hardy eventually gave in to the pressure and got married on the 9th of March, 2011.
The solidity of their relationship is based not only on the love they have for each other but also on their common interests. Beth Britt and Jeff Hardy have several shared interests which include their love for animals, their passion for music, art, and fashion. Her husband apart from being a professional wrestler is also a musician who has five EPs to his name.
And Are Now Parents to Two Adorable Daughters
Among all the things that Beth Britt and her husband have in common, nothing beats their little girls. While Jeff isn’t an absent dad and is very involved in raising their kids, most of the responsibilities fall on Beth who obviously prioritized being a mom over building a career.

Before Beth and Jeff Hardy got married, they had a child, a daughter named Ruby Claire Hardy. The girl was born on the 19th of October, 2010. It wouldn’t be out of place for anyone to suggest that the birth of Ruby inspired the couple to take their relationship to the prime level. Time would tell what Ruby would choose to do for a living, she is still a lass and has a lot of growing up to do.
Nera Quinn Hardy
- Date of Birth: December 31, 2015

After the couple got married and a few years after the birth of their first child, Beth and Jeff welcomed their second child, another daughter Nera Quinn Hardy. The baby of the family, Nara was born on the 31st of December, 2015.
Like her older sister, Nera doesn’t concern herself with thoughts about the future, she gets all the career and attention she needs from her parents; that’s all that matters at the moment.
An Overview of the Challenges the Beth-Jeff Relationship Has Faced
Jeff thinks highly of Beth Britt and it has a lot to do with how she has stood by him through the legal issues and troubles he has faced. In 2019, the wrestler was arrested twice: first for public intoxication and then for driving while impaired.
About a decade earlier (September 2009), he was held by the law for possession of anabolic steroids, cocaine, and trafficking prescription pills. Jeff pleaded guilty to the charges brought against him and was incarcerated for 10 days, among other penalties.
The previous year (March 2008), the couple who had been co-habiting lost their house to a fire accident that also claimed the life of their dog named Jack. Through all of these troubles, Beth has been with Jeff; like he once said: “She’s been with me through thick and thin”.
Jeff Hardy’s Love Song about Beth Britt
Jeff isn’t only a wrestler, he is also a musician. Sometime in 2003, he formed a band called PeroxWhy?Gen. Among his body of works, the wrestler has a love song about his wife titled “1 or 100“.
Through the song, Jeff expressed how grateful he is to have Beth as a part of his life. The last bridge of the song is about a time Beth had an asthma attack and Jeff had to call 911. The fearless wrestler was afraid she would pass on: “I think you’re gone and I am terrified.
My life without you will never survive,” reads an excerpt from the lyrics of the song.
Beth Britt has continued to be a supportive wife and a loving mother. She can be found regularly posting pictures of her amazing family on Instagram @bethbritthardy.
