As per the reports, they got married after discovering that Leah's treatment ceased on working. Moreover, Leah was diagnosed with stage 4, terminal lung cancer in September of 2016.

But, despite the shattering diagnosis, Leah came forth like a fighter upholding an entirely positive outlook on life. Hope and appreciation towards what she has in life and what she gets to live every single day is what has kept her going in life.

Though Leah is very optimistic towards her life, she expressed that letting her family and the people she loves, know about her medical condition was the worst thing she had to do. 

Leah, who has two daughters, Lily and Maya in the name of a family from her relationship with ex-husband Lyle Watson, recalled the devastating moment when she shared the news about her cancer diagnosis to her daughters. She gushed,

"Any mother will know how I felt, It's the worst thing you can imagine having to tell those closest to you, something like this… trying to find the words. It's the worst thing I've had to do…" 

However, her family and friends are her strength who has even helped her raise the money for the immunotherapy, a private treatment that she needed to go through at Germany. Surprisingly enough the fundraising campaign in just two weeks raised nearly £65,000.

Additionally, apart from the treatments, Leah has been practicing yoga for 15 years which she cites is a way to keep her "calm and positive " while facing the devastating diagnosis.
