Riona Kelly was married with children when her relationship dissolved and her husband left. And around the time of the break-up, her health also took a drastic turn for the worse, which led to hospitalization. Despite doctors’ low expectations, though, Kelly fought through hardships to defy the odds, and now her fortunes have improved.
Kelly comes from Halifax in Yorkshire, England, where she lived with her husband once upon a time. During their 14 years of marriage, the couple had four children together, who at the time of Kelly’s interview were aged five to 16. Logan is their youngest, followed by nine-year-old Izabela, Caleb, 11, and last but not least their eldest child, Leighanra.
Despite the length of their relationship, it’s safe to say that Kelly and her spouse Richard had been through some turbulent times. Indeed, Kelly admitted as much herself. “Looking back I was miserable in my marriage,” she told the Daily Mirror in August 2017. “But we had built a life together and had responsibilities.”
