The two first met in 2015 when she was having a backyard bonfire. Erik actively pursued her after that. After almost six months, the two started going out and shared the news via Instagram in early 2016. 


The pair's wedding was unique and spontaneous. Leanne and Erik were living in New York City in November of 2017 when they decided to get married. The wedding was held just four days after they made up their minds.

The ceremony took place on 12 November 2017 at The Bowery Hotel in New York City. It was incredibly private, and only 17 guests were present for the event.


Leanne and her husband, Erik Allen Ford, welcomed a baby daughter Ever Allen Ford on 18 March 2019.

The couple first learned of their pregnancy in August of 2018 and shared the news in October. The Restored by the Fords star revealed that she was pleasantly surprised when she learned she was having a girl. She further added how she reacted to the info. In her own words,

“Since I was little, I thought if I ever had children, they would be boys, so when the sonogram woman told us it’s a little girl, we both got teary-eyed. I was like, ‘Actually, that feels very right.’”

The interior designer even made a love wall in her daughter's room, where she pasted love letters, concert tickets, family photos, cards, and other souvenirs.
