    Both are correct! However, the function of "being a …" is not the same.

    For "… my wife's being a …", you treat "being a .." as a gerund phrase (動名詞片語) and use it as a noun.

    For " … my wife being a …," you treat "being a …" as a participle phrase (分詞片語) and use it as an adjective.

    I'm proud of my wife's being a renowned pianist.

    當介系詞of受詞的是動名詞片語being a renowned pianist

    my wife's是用來修飾動名詞的所有格名詞

    I'm proud of my wife being a renowned pianist.

    當介系詞of受詞的是my wife

    being a renowned pianist是分詞片語,用來修飾前面的wife
