“Restored By The Fords'” Leanne Ford is Expecting Her First Child


Another HGTV baby is on the way! “Restored By The Fords” star Leanne Ford is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her husband Erik.

According to an exclusive interview with People, Leanne shared that she got pregnant quickly after she and her husband decided to start trying.

“So many women have trouble getting pregnant and so many of my friends have kind of had their woes about it, so I just assumed that would be the case and you just assume it’s going to take a long time, and it didn’t,” she said.

Apparently, the couple never thought they would have children because they were content with their career and lifestyle— but it wasn’t until Erik suggested that they have a baby that Leanne even considered it.

“I was just trekking along in my little career, happy as could be and then you said one time … he said, ‘We have too much love not to share it.’  Do you remember that? I was like, ‘I hear that.’”

“Yeah, neither of us ever envisioned having children,” Erik said. “When you see your future ahead of you, that wasn’t an image that we saw, and now it’s here.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
