Zuleyka and JJ met while they were attending various charity and public events in Puerto Rico. Barea admitted that it took a lot of ground work and some effort to find out his future girlfriend’s phone number.
In 2011, the NBA player confirmed that he was indeed in a relationship with Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera. On February 18, 2012, the couple welcomed their first child Sebastian Jose Barea Rivera.
Barea confirmed on April 18, 2013 that he and the mother of his child are no longer together. He then began dating actress and former Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2011 Viviana Ortiz in the summer of 2013.
