The two had a “spiritual connection in the beginning” and also bonded over their shared love of music, according to Leah. “And then, of course, the attraction and falling in love with a beautiful soul and knowing you want to be with someone forever,” Leah recalled. “I’ve never felt that way before.”

He doesn’t care.”
