Victoria Monét became a three-Grammy winner after her incredible sweep at the 2024 Grammys — and the 34-year-old star celebrated the long-awaited feat alongside her family.

Monét’s boyfriend, John Gaines, and their precious 2-year-old daughter, Hazel, cheered from the crowd as the veteran singer and songwriter accepted her awards. Before they entered the ceremony, the trio walked the red carpet and sent the paparazzi into a frenzy with their fashionable ensembles.

Fans have been eager to learn more about Monét’s hunky boyfriend ever since he made his red carpet debut. He’s been supporting the R&B songbird throughout her incredible moment in music and holding down father duties while doing so. 

Let’s learn more about the handsome man behind Monét.

John Gaines is a fitness trainer

The attractive gent runs a fitness program called Gains by Gaines, which helps his clients burn fat, gain muscles, and build confidence on their weight loss journey. According to his website, Gaines was a multi-sport athlete before he pivoted into the fitness world.

“When competitive sports were no longer a part of my life, I was lost. I had been preparing for ‘the next season’ almost 20 years of my life and had no idea what to do when it was over. I used fitness to get me through that transition period which definitely wasn’t easy,” the health guru penned.

“I didn’t really know what the future held, but I always knew I had the choice to put some work in each day. This is where Gains Mentality was born.”

Gaines’ passion for health and wellness can also be seen on Instagram. The influencer and model shares tips and workout routines to help his fitness community excel.

Although they haven’t exchanged vows yet, Monét revealed in a September 2021 interview with Essence that marrying Gaines was a part of her big “plan.”

The Grammy winner added, “We’re completely in love and enjoying our new chapter … [Hazel has] really got him wrapped around her finger, and I’ve seen him change in ways that I know he didn’t expect. She’s growing us up.”
