The Relationship of Mor Shapiro and Ben Shapiro
The couple stayed engaged for almost a year before getting married. And in the year 2008, they finally tied the knot in the traditional Jewish marriage style in Acre, Israel.
The couple had family planning in their mind and they went accordingly. They didn’t have any child before 2014. In that year their first baby was born and they named her Leeya Eliana Shapiro.
And sadly there was a problem in the heart of baby Leeya. Later on, in 2015, open heart surgery was done at Children’s Hospital in L.A. And the baby was strong enough and she survived. The Shapiro family got the breath of relief after that.
And then they didn’t put many gaps in bringing their second child in this world. Their second child arrived in 2016 and this time it was a boy. We don’t know what’s the name of their boy. Thankfully, the baby boy was born perfectly healthy.

During a tough time, Ben and Mor prayed for their daughter’s well being and believing in God.
Coincidentally the surgeon who operated Leeya was the same person who operated Jimmy Kimmel’s son at L.A.’s Children’s Hospital.
On his podcast, he spoke about this and some issues that he had with Jimmy Kimmel’s words. Ben Shapiro said the following words.
The problem with the argument that we have to cover pre-existing conditions, which is basically what Jimmy Kimmel is saying here, is number one, when it comes to children, it is the job of the parents to have health insurance when the kid is born, because the parents’ health insurance covers the kid, right? The fact is that my kid was not buying her own health insurance when she was a year and a half old, we had health insurance; it covered her.
