Ben Shapiro is one of the most prominent conservative and controversial political commentators across the globe. His fame has indirectly put those closest to him into the limelight. One of those people is his first born daughter, Leeya Eliana Shapiro.
Who Is Eliana Shapiro?
Leeya is the first born child of Ben and Mor Shapiro. She was born on the 28th January 2014 in Los Angeles, California USA. Leeya’s younger brother was born in 2016. Leeya’s mother Mor, spent around 26 hours in labour before Leeya was born. She was later diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, detected on the atrial septum. This type of disease can often be determined only after birth when various symptoms start appearing, most of which are life-threatening.
Leeya’s Childhood Struggle
Leeya was born with a congenital heart defect. Some symptoms of congenital heart defect include tiredness, bluish skin, and poor weight in infants. The following year, Leeya was admitted into the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, and was scheduled to undergo open-heart surgery.
Fearing for her safety, Ben and Mor hired the same doctor that performed surgery on Jimmy Kimmel’s son. Luckily, his operation was successful, and Leeya has recovered completely and is enjoying her childhood with her two-year-old younger brother.
