It’s no secret Regina takes good care of her body. Because she has a family history of heart disease, she herself was diagnosed with hypertension in her 20’s, she makes sure she stays fit. When she was in high school, she was into track and field which kept her blood pressure down. But when she learned of her hypertension in her 20’s, she became devoted to working out. 

According to the ‘Seven Seconds’ star, she would bring exercise equipment in her car and head to the gym any chance she gets. She lifts weights and takes kickboxing classes.  In addition, she annually cleanses her system by doing a detox for two weeks. This would mean eliminating sugar, processed food and simple carbs from her diet. During these two weeks, she would normally lose 7-10 pounds.

Today, Regina again surprises fans with her portrayal as the grieving mother of a teenager who died of a fatal hit-and-run in ‘Seven Seconds.’ For the first time, she’s competing in the lead actress category in the Emmys for her powerful performance in the show. Regina is anxious about her latest nomination but is grateful for the chance to tackle a social issue on the show and represent other mothers who’ve been through her character’s ordeal. She told Deadline,

“I’m a face for 1000s of mothers, unfortunately. It’s sad that I can even say that. But I am representing all of them. That was a big responsibility to me.”

Regina is divorced with one child – an adult son she named Ian Alexander, Jr. after his father, Ian  Alexander. The mother and her 22-year-old are so close that they even have matching tattoos written in Aramic and which mean “unconditional love.’ Regina opened up about this during an interview in 'The View' in 2017. She showed the tattoo which was imprinted on the lower part of her arm. Meanwhile, Ian’s is a larger version scrawled across his upper arm and over one shoulder.
