Lea has previously opened up about wanting children one day, telling Health: "Oh my gosh, I hope to be a mum of, like, ten kids—if it’s physically possible to pop that many out! Ha! I’m so excited about the thought of being a mum. I also want to continue making records, and I hope to return to Broadway. I also just really want to continue being my own boss—in the sense of creating content for myself on television and writing roles and finding projects that really serve me."
Speaking about her husband, she also said: "I always had relationships where I needed to be the one holding down the fort, and it’s wonderful to have someone who’s in their own lane and has a foundation for who they are and where they are in their own life. We met at the same level personally and professionally. And to go on that journey now together is unbelievable."
