    We’re used to seeing actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter tackle a series of turbulent romantic storylines in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks with her portrayal of Leela Lomax.

    From a surprise pregnancy, DNA drama and a secret murderer boyfriend, screen star Kirsty knows a thing or two about turbulent relationships.

    But while she hasn’t suffered any similar dramas in her personal life, the 34-year-old has endured some ups and downs of her own that could feature in a storyline of the hit soap.

    From a tragic stillborn birth to high-profile infidelity rumours – let’s take a look at the Manchester-born star’s love life away from the cameras…

    Famous Ex

    Kirsty and actor Danny Miller first crossed paths on the Emmerdale set back in 2010 where they started their five-year on-and-off romance.

    But claims that Danny had cheated on his girlfriend allegedly caused the couple to split in 2011 and again in 2012.

    The pair later reconciled and moved in together, but in 2016 reports claimed that he cheated with his Emmerdale co-star, Isabel Hodgins, who was also in a relationship at the time.

    Danny went on to find love with new partner Steph Jones, with the pair welcoming a baby just weeks before he entered the I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! jungle – going on to win the series.

    New Love

    Following her failed romance to Danny Miller, the blonde babe found love again with new beau Paul Barber. The soap star shared a snap welcoming their baby girl back in 2021 – two years after the tragic loss of her stillborn daughter.

    On Instagram, Kirsty, who plays Leela Lomax in the Channel 4 soap, posted a photo with her partner Paul and their new bundle of joy.

    Kirsty posted a photo of her husband leaving the hospital with their infant in a car seat on her Instagram page.

    Celebs and fans congratulated the pair, with Hollyoaks star Anna Shaffer, who plays Ruby Button gushing: "Oh wow Kirsty! I'm really delighted for you; that's wonderful news”

    Not much is known about Paul as the lucky fella hides his personal life form the spotlight. However, the pair gave a glimpse into their private life where they gushed about their relationship, saying “something just clicked.”

    “If you’re in a relationship and it’s not working then you find yourself having to try,” Kirsty told OK! Magazine.

    "With him, it’s just not like that. We make an effort but it’s not hard work – it’s just so natural and effortless. I think that’s when you know it’s love, because every day you wake up and you’re happy."
