The couple, who come to know about the pregnancy in August, had only recently started trying before they conceived.

The television personality told the publication,

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.

Leanne admits that she “never imagined having children”, however, she says when she found out that she was going to be a mom, she felt “natural” to her.

Leanne added,

Erik is the reason I wanted to have children, because of us. Before that...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.'

She continued,

It’s funny, somebody just changes your mind. You think you’ve got your whole life figured out, think you have your path figured out, and something comes and just changes your mind.”

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

Erik, for his part, shared that he was "really surprised and instantaneously happy, so that felt really amazing because I wasn't expecting it."

In addition to welcoming a new addition to the family in 2019, Restored by the Fords, in which she stars in the HGTV series alongside her brother Steve Ford, will also return next year.
