“Just to clarify because I usually don’t respond to anything, but with her three, my child, TV, tabloids, rumors, her travel and work, my work, friends and family, and exes, it’s not a simple love story," Jordan wrote, adding that "people have baggage and sometimes behaviors have to change on both sides."

25. Seconded

“You’re right, babe,” Leah responded. “It’s definitely not easy but it’s worth it. We have something special and we both know that." And it sounds like these two are both committed to putting in the work. We wish them all the best.
