Therefore, in this article, let us try to find out everything about Rob Delaney’s wife Leah Delaney!
Where is Rob Delaney’s wife Leah Delaney From?
Though it is widely perceived in the media that Leah was born in London, that’s completely untrue. She was rather born in the United States which was disclosed by her husband in a lengthy Facebook post back in 2017. He wrote,
“We happen to live in London for my job. Ain’t nothing wrong with London, it’s a wonderful city, but we did not plan to live here forever as our extended families and lifelong friends are in the United States. We loved where we lived in Los Angeles before we came here.”
“It was a good job that brought us to the UK; we did not flee the US as we were very happy there. But now we can’t move back. To the country my wife and I were born and grew up in, the country where 2 of our 3 sons were born. We can’t move back because we’re 5 people and wherever 5 people gather, there you will find at least one preexisting condition.”

Leah Delaney is the Mother of Four Children: One of Them Died of a Brain Tumor
Leah and her spouse Rob have kept the details of their children away from the media. According to a Facebook post, Rob’s wife Leah gave birth to their two kids in the United States.
But, at the time of her third pregnancy, Leah was in London and the couple welcomed their third child, a son Henry in 2016, at the United Kingdom National Health Service.
However, shortly after the birth, the baby was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After persistent vomiting and weight loss, doctors performed surgery to remove the tumor from Henry’s brain. Later on, the couple did a lot of treatments but despite all the attempts, cancer returned during the autumn of 2017 and took the life of the baby in Jan 2018.
A month after the baby’s tragic death, the actor took to Facebook to announce the devastating news with a lengthy emotional status. He wrote,
“My wife and Henry’s older brothers and I are devastated of course. Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals.”
The post continued,
“His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.”
Fourth Child of The Couple
Eight months after Henry’s passing, Leah and her husband Rob became parents for the fourth time when they welcomed a son in August 2018.

Apparently, the proud parents had announced they were expecting their fourth child together in June 2018.
Talking about the relationship between their sons, the actor told The Sunday Times Magazine,
