Rebecca's romance follows from her relationship with Harry Needs, which ended in June 2016. The former couple share three-year-old daughter Summer and remain on good terms. In June, Rebecca paid tribute to her ex-husband on social media, and posted a photo of him with a neworn Summer. In the caption, she told the Olympic champion that it has "been amazing for me to watch your guys bond grow more everyday." The pair also celebrated their daughter's birthday together, and spent Christmas as a family.

Following their separation, Rebecca reflected on their marriage. In an interview with Radio Times in 2017, she said of Harry: "He was younger than me, he saw Beijing and he really idolised me. We were dating for a long time and Harry had to step back and say, 'I have to figure out whether I like you or whether I like you because of everything you've achieved.' He wanted to make sure he was with me for the right reasons." The gold medal winner also spoke about the difficulties of dealing with a separation in the public eye. "Your heart is broken any way," she said. "It baffles me that someone thinks they can comment on someone's life they know nothing about."
